Not a stamp in sight.
I desided to give Marianne Design Creatables a whirl and I have to say that the end result is very pleasing. I used the ornate frames and after die cutting I used a teal ink to sponge in the center of the frames I did the flourish with a dark teal card for contrast and then used the ribbon flower dies and slotted sheer white ribbon through the flower.
I layered it all on a cream sqaure piece of card just slightly smaller than the base card. the back frames are glued directly onto the cream card but the center frame was added with foam pads to add dimension to the card.
Pro's for Marianne dies is they are beautiful designs.
Cons are they do not always cut clean through the card and they tend to get sruck in the dies.
