Vignette Floral Branch and the Wicker Panel...


Happy Tuesday! Pam here... It's been an exciting week for Tim and I so far!  We have another new grandson, born early evening Sunday.  We are feeling thankful!

I wanted to share a card I started Saturday afternoon and just finished up today.  Another FABULOUS Flower die and the Wicker Panel die in white that I cut in half the long way and used on each side of the gingham panel. 

 I die cut the  Vignette Floral Branch die out of three colors, white, Meadow and Blueberry so I could 'color' the flowers.  Very easy to piece together.  

*Trim the Blueberry flowers off the Blueberry cut and glue to the Meadow cut.  

*Trim the little white flowers from the white cut and glue to the Meadow cut.

*Cut one more time out of the Blueberry Distress Dots Signature Pattern Paper for the flower petals...leave them in the die if you can until you are ready to place them.

Here's a trick...on your green cut that you've added the blueberry and white flowers to already, turn it over and put a little piece of scotch tape on the wrong side of the big flowers...that will give you some adhesive area, so when you turn it back over, right side up, you can stick the flower petals in the right spot on the Blueberry flowers and the scotch tape will hold them in place!  YAY!  (you can use double sided tape instead of scotch tape if it has a release paper, so it doesn't stick to whatever you are working on too) 

A close up...


remember - you can click on any of the photos to see them full size.

I mounted the finished Vignette Floral Branch to the card with mounting squares.

I cut the A Little Thanks die from white card-stock twice and glued them together.

I use Tombow Mono Multi glue.  Keep the tip clean and keep it laying down all the time and it'll be your 'new best friend'! ; )

Thanks for stopping by today!  

Enjoy the NEW dies!  I love the Vignette Floral Branch...I think it will play nicely with the Wildflower Corner die too!  oh, and wouldn't a butterfly be nice on here! lol



What a lovely card & so clever using these dies, i have several that are not used that much as i was never sure what to do with them, thank you for sharing your talent & wonderful ideas, Congrats on your new G/child enjoy :)

You're welcome and thank you Ivy!

What a beautiful card!

thank you Margarita!

I love this card. Design and colors. The flowers reminds me of flowers my kids made with fabric, glue, skinny white floral wire (for a white outline) and green floral tape. And here it comes again, sorta, 30 years later. Ha! Love it. That Wicker die looks very cool. Looks like I have some shopping to do.

lovely card, bye from France

so true Beverly! What's old is new again a lot in our creating history! Thanks for commenting! Fun to read!

Thank you Pitchoune

Absolutely delightful! This has to be one of my all time favorites of yours, Pam! These dies are amazing, the gingham stole my heart, and those luscious colors? YUMMMMM! Thanks for sharing, enabling, and inspiring :)

thank you Patti! I love the Memory Box Gingham pattern too!

What a beautiful card. I love how you "colored in" your flowers...very easy. And thank you for the tip on the glue, I keep mine nose down.

Hi Blue Rose - Thank you! I've tried the nose down but I can't get it to stop coming out then!
