My card today uses the Brand New Presscuts Book Card die set. I love to use unusual card shapes but often the fussy measuring and cutting puts me off to make them once I get round to it, so I was delighted to see this new die set with all the hard work already done for me.
You need and A4 die cutting machine and I have used 3 sheets of card. One for the base card and inner mats and then two in Milk foundation card for the front cover and the inner card
For the background design, I have used the Phill Martin Grunge dots stencil and sponge through with Distress inks in Victorian Velvet and Antique Linen
I have continued the design inside as well, with another sentiment from Woodware as the verse leaving a blank panel for writing on too.

Colour makes such a difference to the world, it would be a very dull place if everything was in black and white wouldnt it. So why not ring the changes with your card making and choose different colours than you normally would. As a good start, two different shades of the same colour, one light and one dark is a really simple way to get great effects.
I have used the Butterfly frame die here in Amethyst and Mauve. I cut the main frame from the Mauve cardstock and matted with the darker Amethyst. Crystal strips have been cut in half and put around the outside edge. Then single crystal embellishments on the butterflies. The centre piece has been turned 90 degrees to give a different slant.
The beauty of Sue Wilson die sets is that they match so perfectly and you can see that I have used the Double Pierced Square die sets to give the pierced outer edges.
