For day three of me being 'Card Captain' for the Michael Strong Yahoo group, I decided to make a Christmas card for a sweet blogging friend.
The sentiment is from Create with TLC, and the flowers are from the Mini Shapes set from Michael Strong stamps. The (flowers) mini shapes have a die set that cuts the shapes.
I cut out a template from the die and store it in the sleeve with the die set. Once I stamp the image, I place the template over the image. When, after a while I cannot find the correct fit, I realize I need to flip it over to the other side.... Guess I should write this side up on the template..... LOL
This is what it looks like with the template on top. I draw little circles in the holes, remove the template. Next, place the die over the flower with the holes lined up and viola- flowers cut out!
I trimmed into the flower petals and curled them with my 'pokey' tool. I mounted them on a dimensional. The rhinestone centers are silver/clear colored with Copic YR24.
