Lily of the Valley


I've been playing again.  I downloaded another Twisted Papers design.  I am patiently waiting for my real Lily of the Valley to start popping up.  They are being a little stubborn.  So while I waited, I thought I would play around with this design.   I printed the bottom layer and then fussy cut the second layer around just the bouquet.  Then I cut out each individual white bloom and used small pop dots and glue to apply the third layer at different angles.  Luckily, my friend had some rafia laying around, so I tied a little on top of the layer for an added touch.

I used the Cuttlebug Dotted Swiss folder to emboss the green outside layer.  I also used my friend's new EK Success Double Crochet Border Punch to punch the edge.  Sorry to do this, but here is the link to see their border punches: http://www.eksuccess.com/products_list.php.  It looks as though they have a lot of new punches. OK, now I'm really sorry, I want them all.  I really love this punch.  She should probably double check her punch collection today to make sure she still has it - DOES SHE? 

The finished card is 4-1/4" x 5-1/2".

Wow-another extraordinary card. It looks like a lot of work but well worth it. That should hold you over until yours start blooming in the flower bed.
