Wasn’t it great to see the sun and feel the warmth today 🙂 I am so over all the rain we’ve been having.
Over the weekend I made a few cards with the Detailed Floral Thinlits. These cards weren’t quick to make and were more like doing a jigsaw puzzle than making a card!
To create the card I used the Detailed Floral Thinlits die on Whisper White and ‘pushed’ all the pieces out (which you discard) just leaving the frame behind. I then cut the two dies again from Pool Party and Island Indigo. This time you want to keep the ‘pushed’ out pieces and discard the frame. Now the fun begins – sticking the pieces back into the Whisper White frame 🙂 This is what takes the time – matching up the shape with the cut out space. Even though it takes some time to complete I’m really happy with the finished effect. I have some other colour combinations to share soon.
This first card is for our neighbour whose birthday was yesterday and the second card is for a friend whose birthday is today – and hers was a ‘special’ birthday. Here’s the inside of her card.
I also used the die to create a small holder for some chocolates 🙂
