  3. It's amazing how different this looks cut in different card stock and different colours. It looks great. A few more of these will soon increase your stash Carol. Christine xx

  4. This is beautiful. Amazing how stunning it looks the way you've done it. When I had my first try at this die, it definitely did not look so nice, and your embossing showed up excellently. Love it done with this pretty color. TFS
