Hello crafters – Dawny P here and I have a little project for you today which uses the Crystal Sphere die set from the absolutely gorgeous and oh so versatile Seamlessly Beautiful die release.
There are three die sets in this release – Crystal Sphere, Celtic Cross and Natural Entwine. They are verso dies so have inside and outside edges which means of course that you can get a whole heap of use from them. The outside edges are perfect for matting and layering as well as cutting apertures. And of course, you can use them to make your card bases as well. What’s not to love?
But there’s more, and here’s the thing; there are little pinpricks on some of the dies which mean that you can add stitching to them and because the work is done for you, there’s no worries about getting your stitches even ( I LIKE that). If you don’t fancy getting your needle and thread out and hand stitching, you could adjust the stitch length on your sewing machine and use that to create your stitches. I personally quite enjoy hand stitching them because you can do this at night while you are watching telly, and in these strange times we are in right now, it’s very very soothing. You could also just add faux stitching with a pen or you can just leave them as they are – they look just as good left unstitched. They have a mandala feel to them and I think they’re a really good set to have in your stash because you can make them pretty or quite masculine. The clever designs work well for both.
