Happy Together
by Jenny Griffiths

Hello Crafty Friends and welcome to day four of the Memory Box Blog Blitz featuring the newest designs from the 2016 Collection.  You'll find this collection is filled with inspiration from beautiful hearts to Spring florals and Easter dies and stamps.

Today, it's the beautiful Bundled Heart and Floral Breeze dies in the spotlight.  I love its peek-a-boo possibilities!

Create the background on this card by die cutting the Floral Breeze die into a lavender colored panel.  Die cut again into pink, white and purple papers, retaining cut outs to piece into the lavender layer.  Set aside.

Paint pigment powders onto watercolor paper for the layer behind Bundled Heart.   After watercolors have dried, die cut the largest heart in Glorious Heart, layer a white Bundled Heart die cut and attach to lavender background.

Water Color Background

 Dye white seam binding by dabbing into left over watercolor pigment and crumple into  a ball--let dry then fashion into a bow.  Attach to the heart with a glue dot or other strong adhesive.

The sentiment, "happy together" came from using parts of phrases from the Poppystamps Into the Woods clear set.  I'm always looking at my clear sets for different word combinations to use on cards.

Lastly, add a few sequins to the front of the card and adhere a top-fold purple note card to the finished panel.

It's been a delight working with this new collection, hearts and flowers are my favorite!

Thank you for stopping by today, be sure to add your comment to this post -  you may be a winner of the beautiful Bundle Heart die!   The entry deadline is 11:59 PM EST this Sunday, January 10th.  Winners this week will be announced on the Outside the Box blog on Tuesday, January 12.
