Hi everyone, it's Aida here back with a Happiness Card. When it comes to pretty cards, there is no such thing as too many pretty cards, do we agree ? Today I've mixed a Tim Holtz Alterations Pocket Envelope with 2 dies by Brenda Walton, the Camillia and the Leaves. I love mixing dies from across the Sizzix Designers, they have different styles, and this mix makes a project look interesting.
For the Camillia you can find the PDF instructions on Sizzix.com.
Here are the dies used for the card.
If you love die-cut flowers, you will like the Susan's Garden Tool Kit as it comes with the very useful Ball Stylus which makes curling the flower petals really easy. Using the stylus, starting from the center in a circular motion, gently go over each petal till it curls upwards.
The card is 5 inches tall and 4 inches on the top and because of the size, I used only the medium and small petal layers of the die. The larger flower had 3 medium and 1 small petal layer, the smaller flower with 3 small petal layers. Below you can see the leaf and the flower were assembled first before adhering the piece to the card base.
Such a sweet card to make and give to someone special. I hope this has inspired you to make one today, thank you for dropping by!
