Die Cutting Paper: Flip-its and Flowers... Oh My!

I love how easy it is to put a card together when die cutting paper with Flip-its dies. One of my favorite things to do is use a two sided paper. It always looks like you've spent hours piecing all the layers together when in fact it's only a few minutes. This was a 15 minute project even with the fancy flower on the front!

Here is the inside of my card:

die cutting
Begin by die cutting a piece of two sided paper with the Flip -its Diamond die.

With a black pen doodle around the diamond and outside edge on both sides of your card. Yep... I'm a doodler!

Sponge the edge of your card (both sides) and a strip of patterned paper. Attach paper to the inside of your card. Another great thing about Flip-its die cards is that you can hit your scrap paper pile.... you won't need much to embellish your cards.

Stamp and die cut the inside sentiment with 667919 Word  & Tags Framelits/Stamp set  (love those cute label Framelit dies!) and attach to your card.

Now to make the fun flower!   Die cut 3 blue and three green flowers with the Flower Layers & Center  die. Sponge the edges with Chocolate ink.

Take each petal at pinch it just a bit to add some shape to the flowers.

Assemble your flower with foam tape alternating the colored paper from largest to smallest petals. Add a cute button and some twine to the center.

To finish off the inside of my card I added a little die cut flower (from  667919 Word  & Tags Framelits/Stamp set) to my sentiment and stamped some flowers in Sky ink along the edge of my patterned paper. I added some pearls for a little bling. I added a strip of lace to the other edge to the other edge.
