First Sample...

Happy Monday,

I thought I would hare a fe closer pics of the first sample I made with my sandwich box die set.  This was exactly what I intended when I designed this die a set that could all be made with the one die.




I stared by making the full filigree box.  I cut the front pice 4 times and added the filigree panel to each of them.  Next I cut 4 of the side panels and again cut the filigree panel this time into each piece.  I then simply made up the box as shown in the youtube video thats on my channel.



Next I made the card.  I used the corner filigree panel die and cut this time into a piece of the gold lustre card.  I studded this with pearls and mounted it onto velum to give a soft look.  I added this to a set of layers made with the same card and the press cut stitch dot squares.

I added my Starflowers and leaves to the centre diagonal again cut in the same card shaped and with pearls in the centre.


For the smaller version of the  card I repeated the same process as above but used the smaller corner panel die which is exactly half the size of the larger panel.

I added smaller pearls in the centre of the filigree with just the smallest of the starflowers in the centre.


So just using one die set ( and one set of squares and one set of flowers) then a collection all done, perfect for a special occasion I thought!


Enjoy...

  10. The box is just perfect with very clear instructions, thank you.
    I've only just looked at yesterday's card as I was with my Mum. That card too was lovely, but I hope you achieved your goal for the day. You have worked so hard and successfully on your products, I'm sure you must be in need of a break. It has been a lovely collection and I'm sure there's more in the pipeline. Well done and thank you for all the inspiration.

  11. Morning John, well I knew you were onto a winner when I saw the sample and this is certainly true, the sandwich box is so, so easy to make, the dies are of the highest quality and cut out crisply and neatly, I like the cut out middle bits too. Your samples and demo's on Hochanda since the release have been truly inspiring and I am eagerly awaiting your next release, I wonder how you can top this.

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx
