Dies R Us Dandelion Die Cut Card

Hello crafty friends,

I am so thrilled to share this post. Saturday was my first post as part of the Dies R Us 2018 design team! I will be sharing two projects a month with you using Dies from the DIES R US Shop.  Here is my first project share as a DRU Girl!

This was scheduled to post here on Saturday, but didn't. When I went to go look, it was still in draft. That's because SOMEHOW it was scheduled for Saturday April 8th of 2019...LOL!  Operator error for sure!

I created this sweet, spring-themed card using some fun dies and papers from the Dies R Us shop. I started with a cream cardstock base. The size is a standard A2 size. I then cut a piece of green cardstock for a mat. The wonderful patterned paper is from the Doodlebug    paper pad.



For these pretty flowers, I used the Cheery Lynn Build A Flower 1 Die Set. These dies are actually used for the centers of the flowers but I thought by stacking them and rotating them, and adding enough, they would look a little loosely like dandelions. I cut everything out of white cardstock and then inked the leaves and the very center pieces. I used some of the Colorbox Cat's Eye Pigment Inks you can find in the DRU Shop.

Here's a look at how they look individually. I then staggered and layered four of them together. I, however, decided that four wasn't quite enough so I decided to stack to sets of four together to create each flower.

 
After creating the flowers and adding the oval mat layers, I decided to run a piece of ribbon down the border and add this pretty little yellow bow.

I finished off my card by adding a little sentiment I created. I cut it out in a tag shape and added a little foam tape to it.

Here's an angled view to show you the depth of the layers I achieved by using some foam tape between them. 

Here is one last look at the finished card. I hope you are inspired to create a few little "dandelions" of your own.
