Happy Wednesday, my friends!
I'm so excited to be sharing my first DT project for Scrappy Tails Crafts!
I'm a little bit late to the party, as there were some shipping delays, but
I'm jumping right in with a fun Valentine project,
using fabulous dies from the January release!
Today I am featuring the new:
Flower Vase Pop Up Card Die,
and Heart Assortment Metal Dies.
This is such a fun combination of dies,
and there are so many creative possibilities!
I love versatility in dies.
It's great that they can be used in many different ways,
and these are both that!
Here is my project from the front:
Isn't that fun?
I just love this Flower Vase Pop Up Card Die!
It's the same principle as a box card,
where it's a 3D piece that will fold flat.
Sabrina has made a great video showing how super simple it is to put together.
You'll find that video HERE
This die also comes with a great variety of optional decoration pieces.
I grabbed a variety of patterned papers and cardstock colours
and got busy cutting out all the pretty hearts.
There are so many fun designs in this die set.
You can mix and match and layer them all up.
I backed each piece, so that it looks great from all sides.
Do you see the "LOVE" and the "XOXO"?
Well those are both optional panels to decorate the Vase base.
Since I was using paper that already had a matching XOXO,
I decided to pop the words in among all of the hearts!
Below is a photo of the back side of my project:
Here is one side:
Here is the other side:
It would make such a cute little table centerpiece, wouldn't it?
Below, is a photo taken from the top.
It doesn't really appear that full at this angle.
Here it is all folded up and ready to pop into an envelope.
It looks much fuller in this photo! ;o)
Both of these die sets are so fun to play with!
I just used strips of matching cardstock to attach all of the floating elements.
You could also use pretty wires, or strips of acetate.
I used the strips as another embellishing opportunity,
and chose to add some of the tiny hearts to some.
There are so many fun things you could add to all the hearts:
rhinestones, pearls, glitter, ribbons, etc.
Also, there are so many fun ways to fill the fun Vase!
You'll see some great ideas over at Scrappy Tails Crafts!
