One of the most gorgeous series of Dies that are being made at the moment is the Marianne Creatables such as the Anja dies. They are really pretty, with a vintage, timeless look. I love them. I have just got the Vintage Fan die LR0264.
I have cut them out on some cream card, and sponged the embossed parts with a some medium pink ink. The die came with the a backing piece, which I didn't use this time. I have put a tiny vintage rose picture which was printed on some parchment paper which makes it look a little like it is painted.
I finished it off by putting a gem brad through the holes in the bottom of each of the six parts, and made a small tassel with some embroidery floss. It was that easy, but it looks very pretty.
