Thank You

Hi Bloggers.

Another Thank You card! This was one of the demos from Sunday. It features the Spellbinders Floral Burst Cut, Fold & Tuck die set which I think is one of the prettiest die sets of that type.

For the background, I popped a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Floral Lace Mask using the standard embossing sandwich. I inked around the edges with Faded Jeans Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

I cut the largest of the Floral Burst dies out of Foundations Floral Dream Paper and inked through the die with Faded Jeans. I folded and tucked all the way round. I stamped my sentiment from the Creative Expressions Kind Thoughts Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using one of the dies in the Moroccan Motifs die set and inked through the die with Faded Jeans. Once I had removed it from the die I inked around the edges. I cut another motif out using the same die and inked around the edges once I had removed it from the die. I layered the sentiment die cut on top of the plain one turning it slightly to offset the pattern.

I made 3 flowers - 1 from felt using the border from the Moroccan Accents die set, 1 from American Seam Binding in Sky Blue and 1 from Blue Sheer Dots Ribbon which I cut in half length-ways. I made them all using the technique described in Sue's Ribbon Flower Tutorial. I cut all the leaves out using the Little Leaf Sets. I inked through the dies with Faded Jeans. I just used the largest leaf from each set for this project.

I cut 2 corners out of the Floral Dream Foundations Paper and inked through the dies with Faded Jeans.

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.



  1. Hi Julia, there is a lot I like on this card, the colours, design and of course the flowers. Using different textures for the flowers is amazing, never thought of mixing felt and two different ribbons, just lovely.

  7. Morning Julia, A truly beautiful card, the colours are soft and gorgeous, I watched you demo this card on tv and thought how gorgeous it was. I love the starburst cut, fold, tuck dies too, I have used them quite a lot. I love the flowers, I haven't tried your technique for those, yet, with the sticky tape, I have visions of getting it stuck everywhere ha ha !!, but will have to give it a go.
