Tea for Two Flower Folds Birthday Card

Recently I had a customer order the Flower Folds Die and it made me realize I hadn't used mine in a while. Maybe it has something to do with spring coming, but I've been having a ball making flower cards with this die. I'm not even making fancy flowers, just die-cutting the flowers out of designer series paper and layering them one on top of the other. I randomly picked the Tea for Two Designer Series Paper and am enjoying the pretty colors that coordinate (although I did use Pool Party which isn't one of the listed colors!).

You can just glue down each flower…but I put glue only in the center of each flower so that I could fold the petals up. Of course when you are mailing, unless you use a special padded envelope, you can't get too dimensional, but the recipient can "poof up" the petals after they receive it! I used a few Mini Glue Dots to adhere the button, tied with a White Baker's Twine bow, to the center of the flower.  The greeting is from the stamp set Perfectly Penned (a very useful set!). Remember, most any of our stamps you can purchase in wood-mount or clear-mount.  The rubber is the same in either case, it's just a matter of personal preference.

Don't forget….you could also cut out fabric flowers with this die!  It's not just for paper! And you can cut several layers at once!

Why not get out something you haven't played with in awhile like I did today with the Flower Folds Die? You might find a new streak of inspiration!
