Sizzix Inspiration | Spring Flower Treats by Adrianne Surian

Hello friends!  Adrianne here with you today to share a simple gift of spring flowers with some of the brand new dies by Lori Whitlock.  You can make up an easy bag of treats with the Sizzix Thinlits Treat Bag Topper, and pair it with a floral-themed card like the new Sizzix Flower Basket Card in a Box Bigz die.

Nothing says "spring" to me like bright colors, so I used bright aqua and silver from the Tim Holtz Distressed and Metallic paper lines.  I added a little bit of texture with the Sizzix Waffle Textured Impressions embossing folder as well to give the metallic paper that little something extra. To emboss with Textured Impressions in the Big Shot, sandwich your material inside the closed folder, sandwich that between a pair of Standard Cutting Pads and lay it all on Tab 1 of the Multipurpose Platform.

I wanted to keep the look crisp and bright, so I didn't add any ink or distressing - just a few pearl brads and some thin silver twine.  These new dies offer so much already - they don't need much embellishment!

I'm in love with this 3-dimensional card.  As long as you keep your flowers short, it will fit into a regular A2 envelope, but once I got started, though, I couldn't resist adding a few more flowers.  So I just whipped up a 5.5 x 5.5 inch envelope out of some matching patterned Core'dinations paper.

The Sizzix Bigz dies are my favorite style of die to use, because they power through pretty much everything (even my beloved leather). Create your Sizzix "sandwich" with Bigz XL dies like this by placing a few layers of paper over the shapes you want to die-cut, and position it between one Extended Cutting Pad and one Extended Crease Pad.  It's nice to be able to cut several layers at once for the shapes you need more than one of to assemble.

The Sizzix Thinlits Treat Bag Topper is even easier to make, and the set offers several embellishment options.  (I used the "celebrate" Thinlits die from the treat bag set on the front of my card - so it's perfect to mix and match!)  You can also mix and match the flowers between these two sets, too, for a whole paper garden.

Thanks for joining me today, and I hope you're seeing flowers where you live, too!
