Good morning everyone....
I ordered this die from AliExpress, for those of you who haven't heard of this company they are based in China. They make lots of similar dies, not replicas, as there is always something a little different in the design
I've had, possibly, 4-5 items from them and they have worked a treat, but, with this one I'm not too happy with it as it took about 6 passes to die cut and then I embossed it
This is not a complaint about it as I will use it on a lighter card stock and see if it's any better, but, for £1.28 I can't grumble
You have to remember that it takes several weeks for your order to arrive, and that said, one of my orders dropped through the letter box 4 days after placing it on-line!
I've increased the size of the photo to show you that even after embossing it you can't see the details of the swirl lower down on the card. May be I should have used a darker cardstock!
It's a 5"x51/2" card base and I placed the die on the edge of the card to give me the swirl. I used some pretty pink paper to the card inside then stamped the sentiment on the front using 2 stamps by STAMPIN'UP! from their Fabulous Flamingo' stamp set and worn lipstick/Distress Oxide
To complete I used NUVO Crystal Drops/bubblegum blush around the card front
