Bloomin Heart Newlyweds Wisteria Wonder Die Cut Card Stampin Up! UK

Today I have another variation of the Bloomin Hearts Thinlets Dies from Stampin Up!

This time I have made the card for the Newlyweds ... using the sentiment from the all round stamp set TEENY TINY SENTIMENTS.
But the main reason for today's post, is to share with you the results of playing with these super intricate Dies. I tried different combinations of the 'sandwich' I used for my Big Shot Die-cutting machine, but also the Cardstock I used.

And here is the results .... Drum Roll Please ....

The best cardstock to use for this die cut was either the Thicker Whisper White Cardstock, OR the Shimmery White Cardstock. I believe the results of this is because these two card stocks are slightly denser and thicker than most, giving a crisper, cleaner cut

The sandwich that gave the best results can as a surprise as I expected either the Magnetic Platform or the Precision Plate to come out on top, but it wasn't, it was the Multi-Purpose Platform. As my Big Shot is very well used, I also added a couple of Shims ... but even sow I was surprised.

And I think that the white Die Cut onto a coloured cardstock creates a really striking effect, and even better, is this way you can colour co-ordinate the Invitations or Newlyweds cards to the wedding colour scheme .... and I will be playing around with colour comb's for Valentines Cards .... my thoughts are initially Basic Grey, Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler or Real Red as the base  colour ... let me know what you think?
