MCT April Release Day Blog Hop: Flower Bunch

by Veronica

Hello and welcome to the My Creative Time 16th Edition Blog Hop! If you've arrived here from Trell's blog, you're on the right path! If not, I suggest starting at Emma's blog so you can see ALL of the amazing projects the Design Team has in store for you!

As card makers, we are no strangers to creating/sending Thank You Cards. But what if we switched it up every now and then? For today's project, I've created a Thank You Flower Bunch. Using the BRAND NEW Rolled Flower Dies, I created this beautiful (and never dying) bunch of flowers. The Rolled Flower Dies will work with paper or card stock, patterned or solid. To add some oomph to my solid color flowers, I inked the edges with my Tim Holtz Alcohol Ink Applicator. I also glued a little rhinestone to the center of each flower for some extra pizzazz.

For the stems, I covered some leftover pipe cleaners I had from another project with white floral tape and stuck them through the bases of my flowers. Then I wrapped all of the stems together with more floral tape. The "Thanks a bunch!" sentiment from Bloom Where You Are Planted worked PERFECTLY with my little bunch of flowers. I stamped that on the large die from Teeny Tag Greetings and tied it to the bunch with Stampin' Up!'s Pool Party Bakers Twine.

***GIVEAWAY ALERT***
