More ways with Die cuts - Tutorial

Here is a card with fancy corners... except they're not corners, they're actually squares from the Spellbinders Fleur De Lis set.
This is how I set about changing them
I die-cut out the small square from a piece of white card.
Then I cut it in half diagonally.This leaves little bits sticking out which were part of the inner trellis.So I trimmed these off leaving a smooth line.Finally, I coloured it with a Promarker to match the layering on my card and added a little Glamour Dust before attaching it to the card.
The image is LOTV and all the diecuts are Spellbinders.
They look quite dramatic don't they!
