Now, here’s my card.

Daffodil Day env

I used our first exclusive custom Spellbinder die, ODBD Labels 1, Daffodil Corner, Eternity and Happy Spring. Colored with Copics, sponged with Distress ink. The DP is Basic Grey Curio, CS is Bazzill. I used the Bow Easy for my bow then distressed it with my heat tool.

I stamped the Daffodil Corner once, made a mask and stamped it again. Here’s how I got the flowers to hang over the cut area.

Daffodil Day die

Using a craft knife, I carefully cut where I wanted, slid the die under those areas and cut in my Grand Calibur!

I added some Flower Soft too! All Flower Soft products are the Super Special Sale Items this week, 15% off until Saturday, March 5th at midnight EST. (Sale price will be reflected in your shopping cart.)

Hi Dawn! There's no way I can make a decision between the tulips and the daffodils as to which one I like the best, nor can I live without the new spellbinders set, nor can I make it without all of the new sets!!! Your daffodils are beautiful and I have to thank you so much for showing the technique for getting the daff's to drape over the diecut!! MY Grand Caliber arrived this morning, and now I have to wait for the new Spellbinders dies to arrive, but oh how I want this newest set!! PICK ME!!!
Blessings, Doni

My first WOW of the day! This is absolutely beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

Traci S. said...

Dawn, you never cease to amaze me! These are incredible pieces. I love how you have the flowers look like they are wrapped around the "frame." That Psalm is one of my all time favorites, as I'm sure it is to many others. It is how I start my day off. I wake up and sing it to the Lord before I start petitioning for anyone else, and rising from the bed. This is so beautiful...all tied together with that sheer white bow! Beautiful! Amazing!

Thank you for sharing this with me/us.

He IS Able,
Traci S.
