Delicate Branch Frame Cards--2 from one die cut

Today's cards feature the Memory Box die 98631 Delicate Branch Frame. Delicate branch frame

I used an adhesive-backed paper to cut out the die image on the left, and then I thought I could use the rest of what was left inside the frame to make the second coordinating card shown on the right.  

One cut=two cards!

Materials used

  • Memory Box dies:  98631 Delicate Branch Frame; 98160 Perched Reed Bird (with his legs snipped off); 98312 Fancy Blossoms; and 98313 Tender Leaves
  • PoppyStamps dies:  874 Large Curious Cat; 879 Labrador
  • Brown adhesive-backed paper for the frame, its inside piece, and the cat
  • Memory Box Distressed Dots in licorice for the dog, bluebird for the bird which is pop-dotted above the negative branch, and key lime for the leaves
  • Memory Box Dot paper in currant for the flowers
  • adhesive-backed white pearls in three sizes for the flower centers
  • kraft notecards and envelopes (I wrote Meow on one and Woof on the other next to where the address will go when I'm ready to send them off.)

No adhesive-backed paper?  Use a glue pen or fine-tipped glue (I like Scotch Quick-Dry Adhesive) for the fine lines of the Delicate Branch Frame!  Glue Dots work great for adhering flowers and leaves.  Double-sided tape on the animals keeps them where you want them.  

Happy Crafting!
