Good Monday morning.  I am so intrigued with the Creative Expressions decorative die collections.  My project today was made using the French Collection Corner, Border and Tag set, Finishing Touches Petite Vinery and Delicate Daisies Complete Petals. The border die in this set is eight inches long. I most usually make standard A2 sized cards but I couldn’t resist creating a larger card that could accommodate the width of the border.  This card is eight inches by four inches. I can imagine the border would be gorgeous on a scrapbook page or journal cover as well.

I cut the border twice, applied thin strips of mounting tape and attached them to the card base. I cut the tag in the set and mounted it right in the center of the border frames.  It is almost totally hidden by the foliage and flower but it created a good base for the spray.

I cut two of the largest flower and one of the two smaller flowers, shaped them with my stylus and molding pad and attached the flower sections together with glossy accents. Note: I used the three smallest flowers in the set for this project.  I used a mini applicator to apply touches of pink ink to the petals and flower center to add a little depth of color but it really doesn’t show in the photos. I cut four sections of the vine and formed them with the stylus and molding. 

I attached the foliage and flower to the tag center with glossy accents and finished by adding a single pearl to the flower center. This foliage die is one of the most beautiful and delicate I have ever worked with and I am in love.  You will be seeing lots more of it on my future floral projects.

Here’s a closer view.  I’m not sure which I think is prettier.  The flower or the foliage?
