Thank You

Hi Everyone

It Barbara and I'm 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 here at Craft-Dee BowZ.

This card features the Fern die and the Asters set

Here is the card that made.

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

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 layeed 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 ths look.

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

Thanks so much for stopping by. Next week, Vicki will be sharing her projects with you starting next Tuesday, Nov. 11. Please stop back for more great ideas.

This is super pretty and I love purple so this caught my eye right away. And how you got the flowers to pop...great idea since who likes to see that foamy stuff behind the petals? Not me. This is so garden looking (were you trying for that look? Say yes.) and I love gardening. Such a pretty card. Let me send you my home address. Hugs, Gail
