Cards featuring Sue Wilson's Austrian Collection dies

Card Designer Joan Morrison has made these cards featuring dies from Sue Wilson's Austrian Collection.  Once again, she demonstrates how using different dies in the set in different ways can create such different and beautiful cards.

5 pc. die set

This card is beautiful with a dark navy backing 
and could be used either shown to open up
 or standing up to open from the side. 
You can see that the outer cutting edges were used 
then layered and and mounted on the card for dimension.
Also used: Cheery Lynn B152 Miniature Rose
Cheery Lynn B178 Flourish Leaf

On this card,  you can see Joan did not use the outer cutting edge die 
 and just cut the decorative oval design right into the cardstock. 
The large bow really makes a nice accent as well as 
the Splendid Swirls. These swirls are perfect for
tucking behind flowers or cutting out of print
paper for random accents on any card.

This card is simple yet strikingly beautiful. 
Only 1 die from the Innsbruck set was used to cut right into the cardstock. 
The flower featured is the Penny Black die # 51-005 Iris, 
which Joan cut out of 2 shades of purple and layered, then just
 lightly shaped and embellished for detail.

Wow.  The picture does not do this card justice.  
A beautiful pink glitter backing really makes the decorative inner oval pop!  
The flower in the center of the card is Cheery Lynn B259 Daisy strip 
and Cheery Lynn B178 Leaf Flourish.
Also featured is the Petite Peony Cluster die CED1451.

**This die is currently OOS, but you can still order it and 
as soon as they are available from my supplier I will get them to you. 
 Sorry, I do not have a date as to when they are expected. 


This gorgeous card features the Austrian Background die 
cut out of purple glitter paper and backed with silver glitter paper 
for some fabulous glitz.   I love the Penny Black flower Joan used on this card, 
however it is discontinued (#51-059 Joyful).  But any flower would look great 
in the middle of this spectacular background die.
NOTE: This die does not have an outer cutting edge..
.it cuts the design into your cardstock
