A Bunch Of Juliet

Today I worked with a fun die from Heartfelt Creations called Sweet Juliet. The first time I saw it, I could not figure it out but now I adore the unique blossoms it makes. I think one of the things I like about it is you don't have to stamp something first, and then line up the die properly. Just lay the die on the paper and run it through the machine.

All the patterned papers I used (which is all the papers in the project) are also from HFC. I may have mentioned in the past how much I love them. The collections I used are listed below. Even the blossoms were made from patterned paper. Some of the lighter petals are from the same paper as the top mat with the words; you really can't tell when they are put together and it gives such nice texture to them.

If you look closely, you will see that I used 3 different types of brads. Also, the flowers where adhered in two different ways. On the back of the larger ones, I attached a square of foam tape with Zip glue, then used more Zip on the foam square to glue it to the card. The smaller blossoms were adhered with Diamond Glaze.

I dug out a set of dies that I have not used in a very long time, but that seemed very suited to the style of the card.

As you can see, I did not do much stamping on this one. I hope you like it anyway.

On the right, you can see the inside of the card.

  1. This card and the one below is stunning! Love your flowers; I found this die difficult to work with cause my fingers are getting stiff as I age. Well done girl!
