Edge Framelits

To celebrate that the Fresh Moments dies that I designed for Sizzix EU are arriving to the shops around, I thought I would a series of tutorials and projects featuring the collection in the next few weeks in three blogs that I post - Sizzix EUTubo and of course this very one.
This is a mini tutorial on how the Edge Framelits work. Basically they are a framelits designed to go on the edge of a card. Some of them will cut a decorative edge and some will cut smaller details a long a vertical line (like the flower on the left of the photo bellow).

There are two sets of Edge Framelits in the Fresh Moments collections. 
Today I will feature the Dotty and Flower set. The other set is called Flowers and Hearts.

All the Edge Framelits that actually cut a decorative edge can be cut two ways, positive or negative. 

The negative way is basically getting the edge on the opposite side that it was designed or originally thought, but often equally as decorative.

The positive way is to place the side with the decorative blade on the right side of the card edge like the above photo shows. 

To decorate the front I die cut a vase (Flower Vases), flowers (Bunch of Flowers) and sentiment tags on which I stamped the message - from Simple Flowers.
I placed inside of the card a pice of stripe paper and a the scallop band die cut using the Circle Wrappers
You can see bellow how the scallop band of the Circle Wrappers works with the edgelit looks rather nice, dont you think?
