Good morning!!  Like every month, we love bringing you inspiration for the Die of the Month; today is our Die of the Month Blog Hop!!   This month we have the most elegant of elegant dies that are designed to allow you to cut the die then slip a card into position.  

The Lacework Finery Slip-In Card Die has a tiara-like motif that can be used with the corner pieces or without.  If you are looking for a subdued card, why not use the corner pieces only?  All of the pieces are inlaid, you can use them alone or together to get the look you want.   

Everyone on the Creative Team has joined in to give you their spin, in their style.  We hope you'll see something that resonates and inspires you. If you are new to our blogs, the Die of the Month is an exclusive die Becca has designed for Spellbinders - it is called the Lacework Finery Slip-In Card Die.  This particular set has 10 dies and they can be used to make a background, a slip-in card, or a frame with decorative corners, while the individual dies in the set can be used for many things.  Oh, and to make the set complete, there are flowers!

My Card Today:

Since the die looks like a tiara, it reminds me of a little girls birthday party. (My Birthday is also today, so that kind of helped too! LOL ;) So that was the inspiration for my card. This could be used for either a birthday card or birthday party invite. It would also be great for a wedding shower or even baby shower. Just depends on what you put on the inside.  

I layered the die cuts using some gold poster board and blush cardstock and just slightly offsetting the gold behind the blush cardstock. Love the flower die that is included too!

And since we are talking parties! I thought I would make a place card setting using the die. It is super easy and it gives sch a pretty presentation.

I just die cut the tiara motif inside of the large rectangle die that is also included in the set. I then folded one side back and the other half forward. And you instantly get this shape! Easy Peasy!

Here you can see where I place a single pearl in the back in order to keep the paper from sliding back. And you can also fold these flat as well. this would also be great as a gift card holder as well.

As always, each member of the Creative Team spins their interpretation of a die.  To see their makes pop down the list of Creative Team Member to see more!

Hi, Melissa,
Shadowing this lacework in gold really accentuates its beauty and pairing it with the flowers made a gorgeous presentation. I just love your card with the Swirl Background and Curvy Labels from a previous post and have used it for inspiration, as well. Thank you!
