Lovely Peony

The Lovely Peony Outline and Lovely Peony Background dies were the first ones I was drawn to from the new collection from Memory Box.     This is the card I designed using these dies.   I taught this card at The Scrapadoodle in Peoria, IL last night and everyone LOVED it! 

Just change out the sentiment and its the perfect card for a birthday, Mother's Day, or whatever!

  • Cut a piece of Sugar Plum paper 3 7/8" X 5 1/8" and attach to a piece of Licorice paper (4 X 5 1/4").  then adhere to the front of a Raspberry Notecard.
  • Die cut a  1 1/2" X  4 5/8" strip of Raspberry paper using Trellis Border die.  Run die through Xyron “X” sticker maker.  Make sure you rub this piece well including in the nooks and cranny’s to make sure the sticker material adheres.  I like to use a popsicle stick or stylus.  Attach to strip of Licorice paper and then to front of card.
  • Die cut a circle out of white paper and a slightly larger circle out of Licorice paper.  Adhere the white to the Licorice then attach to the front of the card.
  • Die cut the Lovely Peony Outline froma piece of Raspberry cardstock and run through Xyron.  Then attach to the Lovely Peony Background that has been die cut from a piece of Cherry Blossom paper.  Adhere to top of circles.
  • I dyed some seam binding using Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry Distress inks.  Thread twine through a button and tie in back.  Make four loops with ribbon and tie with remaining twine.  Attach to front of card with a large glue dot.
  • I added some tiny dots of Magenta Stickles to the center of the Peony.

I hope you enjoy!!!
