Two 4 One

Morning Dies R Us Friends!
It's Tuesday once again, and that means I  (Darlene) have a die cutting inspiration piece to share with you today. I decided to do not one but TWO cards for you today using the same dies ... just in a little different way.

The dies I have used on my cards are:
 CARD #1

Inside View
The design paper I used on both cards is from SandyLion.com and has been in my stash for YEARS!  I thought it worked well with the Ashby Corner die ... the flower patterns are very similar! 

I decided to use the 'St. Barts' die set to adorn the inside (top panel) of my card, hence leaving the 'writing panel' open for a personal note which I thought was necessary with the sentiment verse I chose for the front.

CARD #2 ...
For my second card I chose to use the St. Bart's die a little more extensively on the front bringing attention to the sentiment verse I chose ... (and find myself repeating to myself more and more as I get older! lol).   Though a little difficult to see, I popped up the sentiment panel to help add dimension to my card and still keep it mailable. 

Since the Ashby Corner die blends more with the color of the paper, I decided to add White Liquid Pearls to the flower centers which really draws your eye.  I also used it for the center on my Delicate Daisy flower.

I hope you've enjoyed today's card creations!

Remember, you can see NEW die cutting card samples here EACH DAY Monday through Friday.  Also I hope you'll come join in our challenges.  A new challenge goes up on the 1st and 15th of each month over on our Dies R Us Challenge BlogAND ... there's a prize offered!
We have a fun one going on right now ... STARS & STRIPES.
You have until June 28th to share your creation ... hope to see you there!

Hope you have a great day and as always . . .
