Classic Corner Elegance

Good morning. :)

One of my favourite paper crafting tools are dies. They are so versatile and are a fantastic investment. So I was really excited when Susana released her own line of Dies by SCACD. For my card today, I used one of the Classic Corner dies. Just because they are called "corner dies" doesn't mean that they need to be used exclusively to adorn the corners of your projects. Some of the SCACD designers have used them to create borders and butterflies...these dies have so much potential! I decided to make a medallion with this Classic Corner die. All the cardstock used on my card is metallic. I cut eight corners out of silver cardstock. I arranged four to create the medallion and used the four remaining corners to frame it.

The completed card measures 4x4. This would make a lovely set of notecards. You could make the notecards all the same, or use the other Corner Dies by SCACD for a little variety. This medallion would also make a great embellishment for boxes or maybe even a journal cover.

So don't be afraid to think outside the box with your Dies by SCACD...let your creativity run wild and have fun playing!
