The famous folder

Good morning everyone from a very unsettled looking N. Ireland.  One minute it looks like rain and the next minute there is a glimpse of the sun.  I have two cards today which I made using the Spellbinders Grand M- bossabilities Folder ( the one that would not go through my GC without removing the plate).  It is called Garden Lattice and has two really lovely deep designs and is a full A4 size.  On this first card I used a Marianne Basket Die and the "twigs" in the basket are actually the Memory Box Madera Corner die which I cut twice out of Mirror card.  

                                             

My second card is the reverse side of the embossing folder and again is very pretty.  Like yesterday I did another Mauve/lilac background and used a new Marianne Die that I bought last week.  I cannot make my mind up about this Marianne Die - I cannot decide whether I like it or not.  Anyway - Thank You for taking a look.  Have a lovely week-end.

These cards are both gorgeous Marie-Louise - the backgrounds are super. The corner makes lovely foliage.

As for the Marianne die - this is one I have been looking for for ages. We don't seem to have any here in England. So you are lucky - it is beautiful and looks great.

Hugs to you Sue Pxxx
