Chloe again

One of my all-time favourite dies is the Memory Box Chloe Stem die, and I know from many of your comments that I'm not alone in that.



Today I've combined it with my favourite colours of cream, terracotta and light olive to give a card with an autumnal feel. I cut it from the terracotta card fist, then embossed the remaining card with a Crafters Companion embossing folder and sanded the surface lightly. before matting onto the olive card, I cut the olive Chloe stem, lining it up carefully to make sure the gap wouldn't show around the edge or within the die cut negative. The cream Chloe stem is cut from the remainder of the sheet of cream card I used to  make the card blank. The sentiment is a Tattered Lace die and I was lucky enough to find two terracotta coloured heart gems in my stash.

I am sharing this with:

  11. Another beautiful card using this die. I love that you have made so many amazing cards with the die, rather than one or two then onto the next. Lots of incentive to use mine.
