2 creative ways to use 1 die

Start off by die-cutting the filigri ornament from the Lovely Ornament die set out of white cardstock several times. Do not discard the foliage negative die-cut pieces. Collect these and start adhering them down onto a white card panel to create a texture tone-on-tone background. 

The trick to fill the panel in is to start in the middle and orientated the pieces for variation. With the leftover Lovely Ornament die cuts, layer three of these up for a dimensional piece. In addition, take the full circle die from the Lovely Ornament die set and cut this out of some cardstock that has been heat embossed in gold. 

Layer up the two ornament die-cut pieces you have and add the little bauble topper to this. Adhere some black ribbon to the back of the bauble and foam mount this onto the white card panel.

Finish the card off white a heat embossed sentiment from the Lovely Ornaments stamp set and embellish with a few matt gold sequins.
