Prized Peony - Beautiful Die Cut Flower - Video Tutorial



I have some really lovely cards to share with you today ... all created using the new Peony dies.

This is a large die set that coordinates with the Prized Peony stamp set. There are outline dies for the images as well as additional dies to create the large Flower shown above and the leaves.


I used papers from the Peony Garden Designer Series Paper pack for all the cards. The colours in this pack are Petal Pink, Basic Grey and Grey Granite. I love having the Greys as the main colour as this means they will actually go with so many different colours. Here I used Daffodil Delight.


The Daffodil Delight paper is from the 6" Brights Collection paper pack.

The sentiment used for this card and the next one come from the Borders Abound stamp set - I wanted a Birthday type sentiment which the Prized Peony set does not have.


The contrast colour used for this next card is Highland Heather. The paper is from our retired Gingham Gala 6" paper pack - I'm still using it up! :o)


I chose Grey Granite as my Grey this time and was able to use some of our new matching Shimmer Ribbon. 

The Whisper White panel was embossed with the Dainty Diamonds folder.


This was the card I created in the Video. All the papers used are from the Peony Garden pack. The sentiment is from the Prized Peony stamp set.

The Flower is so easy to put together - it's a really clever design. And there are a few ways to do this. I kept mine quite flat with just a little dimension, but there are other ways of putting it together and adding a lot more dimension if you wish to.


Here is the Video ...
