Wrapped Flowers

Good Monday Morning!
  Donna Phelan here, back again with another post at the Dies R Us Inspirational Blog. 

Today's card is for Mother's Day, which is fast approaching.  This year it is on May 8th.

Flowers are always such a sure bet for Mother's Day!

 
I first created a paper cone to place my bouquet of poppies inside.  I used the beautiful Poppies die from Frantic Stamper.  Gorgeous!  I die cut them out of water color paper and then proceeded to paint them.  Glued several on the cone then layered a piece of tulle, giving more dimension, and then I added more pretty yellow poppies.  Arranged a few of the die leaves around and sentiment tag, Die-Namics Stitched Traditional Tags.  Decorated the cone itself with Polka Dot Designer Paper, Baker's Twine and a pretty little Heart Charm.     Found some beautiful Designer Paper in my stash with gold accents and created my background.  Sheer Yellow Ribbon and mini Candy Dot for accents.


I knew the cone needed just one more embellishment so I grabbed the Musical Stave die by Amy Design.  I cut it out of Toner Paper and then ran it through my Mini Minc Machine with Gold Foil.....WOW!  The detail is AHmazing!!!


I also added a butterfly using the Butterfly Set 2 by, Dies R Us  I cut 2 different ones, one in teal and the other from Toner Paper, again running it through my Mini Minc Machine with Gold Foil.  Another WOW!!!

  2. Beautiful card Donna. I love your cone of flowers, what a fabulous idea, plus the technique on the musical stave really sets it off, along with the tuille.

  6. Awesome card. The cone full of poppies is fabulous and then you added all the details. The musical stave and butterfly in the glam gold is over the top. Pretty ribbons and papers too.
