Hi there and welcome to today's post!
I have a matching pair with a card and gift bag to share with you today which I made for class this week using my (until then) unused die: Bouquet Bigz. I know this die is supposed to be for making whole flowers in a bunch (like this on the cover of the S/S catty) but if you have been reading my blog for a while you will know I love to add big, 3d flowers to my cards, bags and boxes too!
**EDIT TO SAY: I have a video tutorial HERE on how to make these flowers which I have uploaded now for your viewing pleasure ;-)**
So lets start with a photo of both the card and gift bag today...
Again, I have kept the card quite simple so the flower can be the star of the show...
I used the Sale-a-Bration DSP Best Year Ever (which I totally forgot the name of during filming ;-)) for the card background and the flower too,
Sentiment is from the Butterfly Basics set stamped in Calypso Coral
This *should* fit in an envelope but it would probably be better protected in a boxelope...
Oooh, I will make you a little video on how to make those also!
I also added a banner in Gold Heart Vellum for the flower to sit on on the card and a few rhinestones finish this card.
And the bag, this is a slightly larger sized flower but all will be much clearer with the video tomorrow (I hope!) ;-)
This sentiment is from a retired stamp set but it's one of few that I won't part with as it's just so useful.
and you can see the depth of the flower here
I'm giving mine to my Mum for her birthday but wouldn't it be a fab set for Mother's day too??
OK, lots of photos today so if you're still awake: Well done! ;-)
I'll be back with the full video for you tomorrow,
