leafy border card set using Botanical Builder Dies from Stampin Up!

Hi guys, I'm here again dusting my blog... :)
Been working so hard on my orders forgot to take a break and visit my own blog! how rude of me...
But I am here now to show you a set of cards I made yesterday using another fabulous set from Stampin Up.
Here are my cards:

The die set is amazing. I didn't really know where to start or what dies to use to design my card so in the end I only used one die. And I think the final effect is stunning.
The idea was very simple to follow. I had my card base 6x6. I cut a square of a different colour paper  a little bit smaller than my card base and glued it together. Then, using my leaves die I cut borders of 2 pieces of paper - same paper as my base card. You can see what I mean in the picture above.... I know, I am not very good at describing things....
Anyway, next step - stamp your sentiment!!!!! somewhere in the middle, and THEN stick the two smaller pieces to the base - one at top and the other one at the bottom so that the leaves create a nice wavy space in the middle and show of the sentiment. I used some foam sticky pads/dimensionals to give them a bit of 3D effect.

To finish it off I used some clear self adhesive gems and Crystal Effect from Stampin Up to create the tiny shiny drops...

As you can see in the pictures above I also cut a nice leafy border for the card insert so that it all matches.
very simple, plain cards but I love them!!!
