Good Morning all…
The wait is over and here comes the launch of the Lacy Diamond Dies.

Instructions: The ready top fold card from smooth white cardstock measures, 6″ by 8″. To create the top panel, choose the paper from the designer paper collection and cut to size, 5 1/2″ by 7 1/2″. Distress all the edges using a sharp scissors and create a white mat, 1/16′ larger on all sides. Further layer the whole panel on golden cardstock and finally add the panel to the ready card base.
Cut first and second largest die cuts from the Eyelet Diamond Die and a die cut from Lacy Daimond Die. Stack all the die cuts one on each other as shown in the picture. Finally layer the diamond panel on the card base and trim the die cuts which are hanging out from the card.
Stamp the images from the Tulip Bouquet Cling Stamp Set on white cardstock using black archival ink and cut the images using their coordinating dies. Color the images using Steadtler Pencils. Create some dimensions by painting extra images and adding foam dots. Layer the painted images on the diamond panel as shown. Finish the card by adding s sentiment from the paper collection and a small white heat embossed butterfly from the Butterfly Border Stamp and Die Set.
