Tall Fern Left Corner and Scalloped Stitch Fancy Frames
by Jean Okimoto


The new Tall Fern Left Corner creates a great background for the Springtime Bunnies.  Bunnies don't usually wear flower garlands, but this is a special trio.  Hello, Jean Okimoto here, with a quick card to welcome spring - and hope it's really arrived this time!


You're probably wondering why the Wintertime Joy die is shown here - I would!  I needed a bunch of tiny flower shapes and decided the littlest snowflakes would work.  Diecut them from scraps of painted watercolor paper, then snip them apart with a pair of detail or manicure scissors.

The Tickle Flower Landscape die would be a smarter alternative for the tiny flowers - 


Attach adhesive label paper or a sticker sheet to brown felt and diecut Springtime Bunnies.  The paper backing stabilizes the felt and keeps glues from soaking through the felt.


Dry-embossing the Scallopped Stitch Fancy Frame is an easy way to add a subtle background accent.  Here's how I layered everything for my Platinum - I bought the extra magnetic platform too.  (Caution, the magnetic field can be harmful to anyone with a pacemaker.)  Place the die - cutting-edge-up - on the platform first.  Add the front of the card, rubber embossing mat and the purple embossing plate.  

Attach the diecuts and add sparkly green gem stickers.


Thanks for visiting - have a great evening.  Join us again tomorrow for another great design from Donna!
