The Dies Have It!
Multiple dies make a great design. Here I’ve used two of dies in the the Curvy Dies set. The first is a plain curve close to the fold of the Thick Basic White card base to remove 3/4’s of the front card.
Then the second dotted Curvy Die is cut from a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of cardstock by laying the die about halfway on the card piece and running through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine. It’s tucked in behind the white curve and glued in place with liquid glue.
I love the way the two curves play against each other. Parallel definitely wouldn’t have had nearly the same punch and polish!
The front is finished off with some lovely patterned paper from the Dandy Garden 6″x6″ paper pack. A 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece is glued to the same size of Bumblebee and fit in behind the two curved elements.
The flower is created by building up the dies in the Dandy Wishes set. Crop the flower and stem piece from Basic White. Then crop the smallest from Basic White, the next size up in Bumblebee and the next size in So Saffron.
When you layer them one on top of the other, you get a wonderful 3D effect.
Stamp your greeting in Bumblebee ink then crop it with the tiny tag in the Ornate Frames dies. It’s attached with a glue dot.
The final touches are a Gilded Gem centre for the flower and a tiny gold bow from gold trim.
Curves Are In!
If you’ve been holding off on the Curvy Dies, you’re not going to want to wait any longer. They’re retiring at the end of June! ☹️ Click here to get a copy of the retiring list.

Stamp the Inside Too
I always think it’s fun to add an image stamp to the inside of the card too. A greeting is fine, but don’t you sometimes feel they look a little lonesome?
