Friday Die Day

Hello friends

Today's Friday Die Day features flowers - a new set of dies called Flower Play.
There are 5 flower dies and 3 leaf dies within the set.

The approximate sizes are:

Flowers 1: 2 2/5 x 2 1/10 Inch
Flowers 2: 2 x 1 4/5 Inch
Flowers 3: 1 2/3 x 1 2/5 Inch
Flowers 4: 1 1/3 x 1 1/4 Inch
Flowers 5: 1 x 1 Inch
Leaf 1: 3/4 x 1 1/4 Inch
Leaf 2: 2/3 x 1 Inch
Leaf 3: 1/2 x 4/5 Inch
Leaf 4: 2/5 x 3/4 Inch
This is how they look cut/embossed.
I chose to tweak the flowers a little for extra dimension.
I then created a Square Petal Top Box and tied it closed with ribbon.
Back to the flowers...I sprayed the petals with some glimmer mist.
Placed 3D Foam Squares between each petal layer.
I inked the edges of the leaves and placed behind the assembled flower.
Added a 'silver' flower brad for the middle and placed it on the top of my box.
It's a lovely die set and the good news is that there will be stamps to match!
These are available to pre-order here and will be arriving in a couple of weeks.
They feature a lovely scroll design and I will be testing them out very soon.

Take care friends - I'm hosting an afternoon tea today for my family, lots of cake!
Wishing you all a brilliant Easter weekend.

Good morning Christine
Lovely gift box today. The flower dies and stamps look really good. I like the idea of being able to turn plain cardstock and paper into patterned die cuts. Plus you can never have too many flower dies!
I hope you have a great family tea.
Happy Easter

Hi Christine. Love the flower, I haven't tried using foam pads in between the layers, it makes a lovely flower for something like the pretty box : )
Have a lovely time this afternoon with the family. I bet there won't be many cakes left at the end of tea time : )
Take care xx
