Evening crafters. I've remembered to take photos whilst prepping for my Let Leonie Loose show using the beautiful Marianne dies.
First, I made the stand, by cutting the die 3 times:
As they are symmetrical they stick together easily and make a strong stand
Next I cut the oval - once with the centre in place, and then removing the centre to leave an ornate frame:
I glued the frame to the full oval using 3D foam pads, and then started to fill the frame with the Marianne swirl and floral dies
