Playing with dies

Hello everyone,
Here is a card I created recently. And this is my first attempt in making paper flowers with Heartfelt Creations dies. I used chalk ink to color the flowers. 

I used A2 bracket border from Spellbinders to create the edges on the layers. The yellow decorative lace was created by the border die in Spellbinders Asian Accents. I cut two dies and overlapped them. The sentiment is also cut with circular die in Asian accents.
For the flowers I used Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms and Majestic Morning flower dies.  The leaves are using the Spellbinders Foliage die. I added few flourishing vine die from Arianna Lace set by Heartfelt Creations, below the flowers to give a delicate look.

I added a cute Tilda image, stamped and colored with watercolor pencils. I embellished the sentiment with pearls.

Hope you like my card. I am entering this card for Challenge #13 DIE - namic card by Kraftzone. 

Happy crafting.

Thinking of you

Hello everyone,
Blue is my favorite color and I love working with intricate dies. Here is what I came up with.....
A double panel card with 'Thinking of You' sentiments.

 For the front panel I took 11" long and 4.5" wide card stock and cut the end with Heartfelt creations Layered scalloped die and folded the ends to form a gatefold. Small flowers distressed with blue ink added to give a 3 dimensional touch on the decorative edges. The gatefold is held in place with a blue organza ribbon. 

I stamped and embossed the sentiment and decorated the panel with quilled flowers. 

The second panel I used a contrast color - orange. This is a simple fold card with a cute Bildmalarna stamp ( From my Heart )- stamped and colored. 

The side of inner panel has a pocket with Spellbinders Decorative corner die where a message is printed with a tag to add your personal message. The inner panel layer is distressed with blue ink and the corner die with orange and blue colors. The tags are also distressed with blue and tied with a blue organza ribbon. 

 The video shows the double panel of the card. 

I am entering this for Create Something Catchy challenge #12 - Let's get Pinspired.

Thank you for visiting and happy crafting.
