Thank You

Hi Everyone

Welcome back. I am back sharing my last project using the Diemond Dies. These dies are great!! One of the best features is that they release the paper/CS so easy, love that!!

Don't forget there is a giveaway that will be announced on December 1 over at Craft-Dee BowZ.

Today I used the fern die and the asters die set.

Here is the card I made using those dies.

I want to share how I made my flowers. They actually stand up in the back on top half.

I cut flowers from 3 dies, the 2nd and the 3rd smallest dies and the next to the largest die.

Next I stacked the 2 smaller flowers on top of each other

The larger flower, fold in half, with the petals offset 

Next attach the layered flowers on top of the folded flower. The folded flower will be attached at the center of the smaller layered flowers.

Here is a side view

Here is what the flower looks like close up, attached to card.

When the flower is attached it will lay at a popped up angle.I know you can use dimensional foam, but this gives a somewhat different look. Hope you like this look. Try it on your flowers, and they should mail very nicely since there is no dimensional foam for these.

Leaving comments here will qualify you to be eligible for the giveaway announced on Sat. Dec. 1 on the Craft-Dee BowZ blog.
