Fun Friday - Forever Blossoms Bundle (#153781)


This week only, until Sunday, May 10, purchase the Flower Blossoms Bundle (#153781) or place a $75+ with me, and
 I will send you a FREE package of Pearls!



Today’s purpose for making cards...
Let's try our hand at the cards that require the "extra mile" for those very special occasions.

Technique...
Today I am going to use the Dutch Fold to create these cards.  We are also going to focus mainly on the Cherry Blossom Dies that come with this bundle.  I will show you how you can arrange the flowers, layer and add a little dimension to the flower.

The Cards...

Card 1
For this card, I decided to just put the flowers around the stamped sentiment.  I found the sentiment got lost and so I re-stamped the sentiment onto the Whisper White oval and popped it up over top of the flowers.

Card 2
For this card, I layered flowers on top of each other to give the flower a little more dimension.

Card 3
For this card, I pressed into the center of each flower with the Take Your Pick Tool to make the flower petals curl inward.  I then used the liquid glue to layer flowers on top of each other.  Love the dimensional effect this made!

I absolutely loved the last card that I made.  I decided to send it to my mom for Mother's Day!
