Thank Goodness!

The Stitched Flower Dies are AMAZING fun and thank goodness! Along with the Subway Tile Embossing Folder and the stamp set from the Sweet Girl Grateful For You Cardmaking Workshop. This card was created for a create and take at the Lakeshore Volunteer Fire Department Crop. The ladies who made it, just loved the card. These dies will fly off the shelf.

Cut out a white panel that is 5 1/4″ by 4″ and run it through the Cuttlebug in the Subway Tile Embossing Folder. Then distress the edges with ink color that matches the flowers cut out. Mount on the card with 3D foam tape. Stamp and mat the sentiment, adhering into the bottom right.

To get dimension with the flowers, I added small cuts between the petals. This allowed me to shape the petals. Shape the flowers with your fingers or a pierce/embossing tool. Distress the edges with ink that matches the flowers.

With the leaves, fold in the center carefully, to give them shape. Distress them with matching ink to the paper, like what was done with the flowers. Put the leaves down, figuring out the best placement for them. Overlap the flowers.

The size of these flowers will make them great for scrapbooking pages as well.
