An eternal birthday card technique

Today is a bit of a technique class for you, using Striplet dies to make a continuous background pattern. For this sample I have used the Eternal rings Striplet and the card is Foundation card in Coconut White and Lilac.

So, from the Coconut White card, I cut one of the Striplet dies without the outer edge
Then simply line up the die, matching the patterns, but with one of the long cutting edges just over the pattern.

I think you can see clearly from this photo where the cutting edge of the die is, literally right up against the edge. Tape into place and then run through your machine again.

Obviously you can keep repeating this as many times as you like but I only needed it twice for my card

I used Maddison Square die from the New York Collection to make a frame and edged with Graceful Lace Trim. The flowers are Cornflowers with a clear Dazzler for the centre and little gems from my stash for the crossover of each ring on the background.
