Chloe stem

The Chloe Stem die from Memory Box is one of my favourite dies. It seems to work in almost any combination of colours and textures of card, soft and muted for a sympathy card, bold and bright for a birthday. I tend to use it in a very CAS way, and yet I've seen it effectively used in shabby chic cards with masses of ribbon, lace and frills.

Today I've used flame-bright colours from my snippets box - red, orange and yellow, and teamed it with a scrap of white card embossed with an Embossalicious folder, torn and lightly inked at the edges.

I gathered the stems together with a scrap of orange ribbon - NOT the dayglow acid orange that it appears to be in the photo, it's actually exactly the same shade of orange as the orange card. So much for the camera never lying....

I'm sharing this with

A lovely take on the theme

Oh this is lovely Jane - and using on of my favourite dies too! So versatile indeed.

Giggled here about masking the meeces tails if you won in the Playground :) They are a tad fiddly but not as bad as I'd imagined - else mine would also have been without tails for sure!

Sorry I'm a bit late commenting!
