Floribunda Collage

December first already!
Which brings us to a new challenge theme at Dies R Us
and it is Christmas!

I have so many fabulous cool dies  from the
Dies R Us store but I had just purchased this pretty die
and couldn't wait to use it.

The die is Poppystamps Floribunda Collage
and guess what? It isn't even a Christmas die at all,
making it so very useful year round!

I have to admit when I first saw it I thought it was a Poinsettia die
but it's not, but I surely turned it into one!

I have become very fond of the 'collage' dies
and find them very useful!

For this card I die cut on a double layer of white card stock
so I could use one as a stencil which would them allow me
to place the other die cut on top of the stenciled area for a perfect fit!
For my stenciling colors I used all that are listed below.
For a heads up, ALL the Memento Dew Drop inks are now at
a close out price, so get them before they are gone!

Nuvo Gloss Apple Green was added to the center of each flower
and I stamped a sentiment from my stash!

Make sure and take a peek over at the Dies R Us challenge blog to see all
the beautiful Christmas creations from our amazing Design Team!

Dies R Us now has a sister store with warehouses in the USA and Canada called Didi Crafts.  

It will ship to both the US and Canada.  Didi Crafts will carry some of the same products as DRU, but most will be different.  Now our Canadian friends don't have to worry about huge taxes or shipping fees. How great is that!?!

Such a sweet card Diane! How clever to create a stencil using this die. The soft colors of your stenciling are just perfect!

Diane that collage die is beautiful and I love how you decorated your card!

Leslie Miller said...

Oh, how I adore this gorgeous card! The die is fantastic and your colors -- wow! It looks perfectly like a Christmas card, but it could easily be changed to a summery birthday card, as well. Love!

Darlene said...

This turned out so pretty. I love the soft colors against the white.

You sure did! If I hadn't read your post, it would never cross my mind that these flowers aren't poinsettias. Beautifully done, teamie :-) Lena xx
