New Circle Dies Tutorial

 Here is the card that I want to share a little tutorial for with you.....

Here is what you will need to create the card,
Paper Boutique Dies - Thinking of You
Paper Boutique Dies - Flowers & Leaves
Pollyanna Pickering DVD - African Safari

First of all you will need to print off the topper that you want to use onto white card and die cut the doily, flowers and leaves from the kraft card.
 Next shape the flowers & leaves.
To shape the flowers emboss the reverse side of each petal with an embossing tool, flip the flower over and emboss the center of the petal.
To shape the leaves, just gently crease along the pre scored line in the middle of each leaf (the dies score this line as you cut the leaf).
The stamen are shaped by embossing the center of each one.
 Now the fun part - time to assemble the card!
I finished the card off with some blue gems as they matched the blue from the topper but the card looks stunning without them too.
Have a go at creating this project and let us know how you get on. We'd love to see what you create.

Happy crafting

Inspiration from Jayne

Jayne has used the new Paper Boutique dies to make a bouquet. here is her recipe we hope it inspires you.

Using the 160gsm has given me more chance of getting movement. As we all know the dies cut like a dream 💗 I've used the large outer die to make the posy base (4layers), then padded & topped off with printed card from the perfect companions disc. Rolled craft card for the stem, then covered. Used one of the doily dies cut twice, cut into quarters & made it go larger. Plenty of movement in the printed card. I've also used some of the red card from the coloured card pack. 💗

We hope this inspires you and would love to see what you make using the dies so don't forget to join us in our Creative Friends Facebook Group.

Happy Crafting.
