Taylored Expressions May Spotlights: Mr. & Mrs. Cutting Plate and Band It Die

Hi there and welcome back for a Spotlight on the new products that were just released at Taylored Expressions!  I have two projects for you today.  The first uses the new Mr. & Mrs. Cutting Plate.  As you've seen from some of the Baker's Dozen, this cutting plate was really meant to create gorgeous wedding cards in minutes.  Just use it to die cut a solid piece of cardstock and layer it on your card and you're finished!!  This particular card took a little longer.  :)  After all, I was just playing with the possibilities!  LOL

I used the cutting plate to cut 4 different color cardstocks and then "paper pieced" them to create this card.  The base is the green one.  I layering everything onto that one since I thought the border and leaves would look good in that color.  After I adhered the different color piece, I added pearls to the centers of the big flowers.

My second project today is just a little gift box I created for the bride and groom.  The box itself was created using the 3x3 Notecard Box Tutorial on Splitcoaststampers.  Once I created the box, I used the NEW Damask Flourishes Die to embellish the lid.  Diecutting it in the same color as the lid makes it look like it's embossed right into the lid.

Next I die cut black cardstock with the Band It Die and embossed Mr & Mrs from Happily Ever After onto it.  I thought this would be a nice way to package a gift for the new couple. . .especially gift cards!

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you've been inspired!  For more inspiration, please visit the rest of the Baker's Dozen to see what they're spotlighting today!
