Die Cut Border Card Set // Avery Elle

I have a fun card set to share with you today, the result of trying to make one unblemished card.

This first card is actually the last card I made, the one look that I was going for.

However, I didn't want my cutting and embossing on the previous cards to go to waste, so with some creative layering (i.e. vellum clouds, sequins), I was able to finish the first three.

I took the clouds from the Weather It stamp set coordinating dies, and embossed them into the card base using a Spellbinders tan mat. I then cut around the clouds, getting a sort of window card? Hm, not exactly sure what you'd call this kind of card...;)
I was inspired by the look of the clouds in THIS pin. Embossing with your dies is a great way to get some more use out of dies. 

Of course, THIS little goose was just dying to use THIS umbrella.

They all have such different looks, despite having the same layout. Which one is your favorite? I think I might like the last one best.
This was such a fun way to use up some more patterned paper - I can't even believe how little I use it these days!
