I am SO glad I finally picked up this flower die and played with it! I am a HUGE fan of Emma's stitched dies over at My Creative Time, and I am slowly building a collection.
Can I just say the timing was excellent for me to grab this one, because this month's MCT Designer's Challenge is to use a FLOWER on a Mother's Day project! YES!!!
I just LOVED using the Jubilee Paper Packet from Close to My Heart to make the flowers! It reminds me soooooo much of a retired paper packet called Pemberley that I adored when I first became a Close to My Heart consultant. :)
I actually even used the Pemberley Assortment resin flowers to complement the paper flowers and the gorgeous font from the Mother's Day My Acrylix Stamp Set.
I was in my craft cave with my teen hanging around trying to butter me up for some reason, when she showed me how she had twirled a skinny triangle of glitter paper around my tweezers. I was so annoyed! I reprimanded her for playing around with my things, especially my precious glitter paper, and took it, only to exclaim a moment later that she was BRILLIANT!
Aren't they just the perfect thing to add to flowers? Oh, I could kiss her! But don't tell her that! ;) The glitter paper is just stiff enough to hold its shape after you let it go. Can't hold it back anymore! ;) I used 5 of these die-cut flowers to layer on my card, so I am off to link up with Heart 2 Heart Challenges: Take 5! You should check it out over there--serious CTMH inspiration, my peeps!
Hope you decide to try this neat little embellishment idea yourself! :)
