Bonjour

Hello crafty friends,

I'm back with my last post for March and for this term. I've had so much fun being on the Dies R Us Design Team for the last two terms and look forward to hopefully making it back on the team someday in the future.

For today's card I used the following dies:  Pinkfresh Studios Slim Fancy Diagonal Stripes, Tutti Designs Frilly Flower Frame and the Creative Expressions Bonjour, which is sadly not currently available.


I started the card be die cutting a piece of pattern pater with the Pinkfresh Studios Slim Fancy Diagonal Stripes and adhering it down to the front of a slim card.  

Next I started working on the flower element by die cutting four Tutti Designs Frilly Flower Frames... 1 from white to use a my base.  2 from purple pattern paper and 1 from green pattern paper.  I used double sided tape on all these die cuts to make adhering them easier.   The flower has a lot of tiny openings and it took me more time than expected to get all the clean and ready (I ended skipping this section in the video, because it took so long).  But please note that it wasn't a die cutting issue.  The die worked wonderfully, the double sided backed tiny pieces just kept sticking to everything.  But I was finally able to paper piece the purple flowers and leaves onto their corresponding places on the white base die cut.  The final element was the added of the "Bonjour" sentiment.
