A Flower in Bloom


Flowers, sunny days and pretty pastels - perfect for Memory Box cards!  Jean Okimoto here - with a card featuring three great, versatile die sets.  I've used Carnival Tickets 98515,  Large Typewriter Lowercase Alphabet Set 98439 and Norrland Flower 98505. 

The Carnival Tickets Die Set combines cutting and embossing in one quick step - I like to add extra detail by embossing twice, like I did on the Key Lime ticket. Just leave the cardstock in the die and run it thru the machine again.  Here's how I layer the stack for the Grand Calibur - gray base plate, Memory Box Metal Adapter Plate, die face-up with the cut ticket still in it, tan rubber embossing mat, light pink embossing plate.


Sparkling Amethyst Glitter, from Clearsnap,  adds the finishing touch!

Have a Happy Easter - and a wonderful holiday weekend...





LOVE the flower for an 'O' Jean! Cute card!

colors are amazing!
