Cover Plate: Peony Die

Hi there! Welcome to day two of the November Papertrey Ink countdown.  I'm here today to share a few samples using one of this months dies... Cover Plate: Peony DieThis new cover plate was a blast to play around with! And its also one of my favorites of the cover plate series.  Hundreds of possibilities are available to you when using this cleaver die, but for you today I've kept things simple.

So, let me get right to today's projects...
First up, I die cut the cover plate from sweet blush pattern paper.  I tilted and attached this to a rustic white card base and then trimmed off the excess.  The white background really lets the die cut take the show.
This uplifting sentiment comes from the soon to be released A Cheerful Heart stamp set.  I love taking any opportunity to trim sentiments apart, and this sentiment is perfect for such a technique.  The tilt of the die cut already gives this card a great deal of movement, but the added touch of staggered stacking with the sentiment really takes this simple card up a notch.
Again, I die cut the cover plate from pattern paper (melon berry pattern paper to be exact).  Before attaching it to the card base, I chose to trim off the thick outer edge.  I just LOVE how this idea creates a sort of invisible frame to surround the die cut peony.
This grateful sentiment comes from the soon to be released Holiday Thanks stamp set.  And yep, again with the trimmed sentiments.  Here's A Tip... If you're wondering how I attached this delicate cover plate to the card front, I'll let you in on a little secret...  The dimensional adhesive is hidden under the sentiment strips.  
Last but not lease, I die cut the peony cover plate from white cardstock.  I really wanted to take this simple die cut up a notch...
And so I placed it over a randomly arranged cardstock and pattern paper strip background. 
I didn't want to distract too much from the background, so I whipped out the soon to be released Type Strips stamp set and coordinating die and created a simple sentiment.  Which I thing compliments the design perfectly. Love it when that happens!

Well, that concludes today's look at  the Cover Plate: Peony Die. Just remember... all that you have seen today will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning November 15th
