Today’s card began with pussy willows from Earthen Elegance Designer Paper, cut with the fourth largest Deckled Rectangles Die. Then, I used the second largest Deckled Rectangles Die to cut Crumb Cake Cardstock to layer behind the pussy willows. Both layers were glued to a Thick Very Vanilla card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.

Petals & Pussy Willows


Prior to gluing the layers to the card base, I embossed the Crumb Cake layer with the Stripes Embossing Folder. This folder comes in a set of two, with the Splatters Embossing Folder. You can see the details in my Product List below.


Next, I used Paper Florist Dies to cut the flower from Hello Irresistible Designer Paper.  First, I cut five large petals, curled them with a Bone Folder, and used Glue Dots to attach them to a circle. Second, I cut smaller petals, glued them together, and attached them to the larger petals with Dimensionals. Third, I cut the center from iridescent Rose Gold Specialty Paper. I love the multi-colored shine!

Hello Irresistible Designer Paper is an Online Exclusive. Clicking the picture in my Product List will take you there.


The sentiment is from the Gorgeously Made stamp set. I stamped it in Early Espresso Ink on Very Vanilla Cardstock, used a Gorgeously Made Die for cutting, and attached it with Dimensionals.


I was inspired by The Paper Players.
