Happy Tuesday, crafty friends! Blog Design Team member Kay Miller has got an absolutely gorgeous card to share with us today! She used some of our dies to create a bouquet of summery floral fun.
and layer in different ways. I used the Bloom Where You’re Planted dies for this fun flowery card. This die set is so
great because it comes with a cute little flower pot to put your flowers
in. If you don’t want to use the pot, there is a stem and leaves, so
they can stand alone too.
Kay’s Notes: First, I cut the flower
dies out of several different colors of card stock, so I would have
plenty of layering options. One really fun thing about this set of dies,
is that the two largest of the flower dies fit together to create a
little outline around the flower. I love that! Next, I just played with
the flowers, layering them with foam tape until I had enough to make a
Kay’s Notes: Then I cut out the flower pot and the top rim. I cut the top rim
twice, once out of the same color as the pot, and once out of a

shadow. Next I die cut the leaves from Bloom Where You’re Planted and
Branches, Banner & Bloom in two different shades of green. Then I die
cut the banner in white and stamped the “Congratulations” on it.
Kay’s Notes: To
put the card together, I first made a little table cloth for the flower
pot to sit on with the rim of the flower pot die cut in red, and glued
that flat to the card. I then glued the flower pot down flat slightly
overlapping the top edge. I knew this card would have lots of
dimension once I had added all the flowers, so I needed the first layer
to be pretty flat. Next, I glued the leaves down flat as well in various
places above the pot. Next I added foam tape to the flowers and added
them in a pleasing manner. Lastly I folded the banner on the scored
lines and added it across the flower pot with some foam tape only in the
Kay’s Notes: Now you have a lovely card perfect for
someone who has just bought a new home, or any event which would call
for a congratulations!
