#CTC270 CASE Your Favourite Punches/Dies Week 2

This fortnight the crew are CASEing their favourite retiring punches or dies from either catalogue. I've gone with a die I thought I really needed at the time and have hardly used - can you relate? I still think it's great and need to give it a good workout to see whether I love it or lose it.

I've used a base of thick Whisper White cardstock. Initially I diecut a puzzle from Petal Pink cardstock and a piece of Bird Ballad DSP using the Puzzle Pieces dies and was going to mix them all up - however I decided that's not what I was after and ended up making two separate cards instead.

I've used the inlaid embossing technique. I randomly adhered the puzzle pieces to a piece of white cardstock and then embossed it with my Country Floral 3D Embossing Folder - another item I'm sad to see retire. I've matted one card with a piece of Petal Pink cardstock and the other with Pretty Peacock cardstock and added to the bases.

The greetings are from Peaceful Moments and stamped in Pretty Peacock ink onto Whisper White. I've punched this one out with the Everyday Label punch and added a Starburst punch shape in Pretty Peacock, with a couple of pieces of Petal Pink Metallic Edge ribbon. I've popped it up on Stampin' Dimensionals.

The greeting for the next card was added to a Rectangle Stitched diecut that was left over from another project. I've added it to a Pretty Pink Starburst punch shape and went without the ribbon as it was busy enough with the DSP but still popped it up with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by. We hope you'll play along and show us what your favourite retiring punch or dies are using the link over on the right.

Let's now visit Monique and her lovely butterfly cards:


  1. Oh these are just awesome. The embossed puzzle pieces look great!! Making two cards is perfect!

  2. Great cards using dies, papers and embossing folders. I've enjoyed using the Puzzle dies, think they'll stay a little longer with me.

  3. Love how you’ve scattered the jigsaw pieces over the card and then embossed them.

  4. Beautiful card Sandra, I love the inlaid embossing of the puzzle pieces, very clever.
