Prized Peony

It is Thursday and time for the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge!  So excited to show you the sketch for the challenge and the card I made.

I saw the sketch and knew it would be perfect to use  the Prized Peony bundle.  After playing around with a couple of ideas I ended up not using the  Prized Peony stamp set just the Peony dies.

The fabulous Peony dies not only cut out the stamped Peony images in the Prized Peony stamp set but also to create this paper peony.  At first the dies look a little intimidating but once you put together your first peony you will see how easy and really ingenious the dies are.  Here's a picture of the dies you will use.

All you need to do is insert the dies in the order as shown above in the previous petals opening.   You match up the bottom shape of each petal and glue  them or use a glue dot to secure them.

I used Flirty Flamingo and Blushing Bride cardstock and sponged along the edges with Flirty Flamingo ink.  The leaves were made using Old Olive amd Mossy Meadow cardstock.  The peony is resting on a circle that was embossed using the Dainty Diamonds 3D folder.  It is a beautiful embossing folder.

The sweet sentiment is from the Ornate Thanks stamp set.  Isn't it a beautiful font?  It just coordinates so well with the whole look of the card.  The Designer Series Paper is from the Peony Garden DSP pack.  

Thank you for stopping by!  If there is anything I can help you with please let me know.  I have linked all the products I used and a link to my online store below.
