Day one in a week with Penny Black

Hello crafty friends.  I have the honor of sharing more ways to use some of the wonderful new products from Penny Black's Sweet Spring 2018 release.  Every day this week my cards will be featured on the main Penny Black Blog I hope you'll pop over and have a look : )



The flower die on this card is called "Bodacious" which, according to Webster, means:

"Outright, Unmistakable, Remarkable, Noteworthy, Sexy, and Voluptuous"

That is a pretty tall order for such a delicate little flower but it holds up to it's name beautifully!!



This truly is a delicate flower but I would like to say this die cuts like butter and the flower easily slides right out of the cutting die!

This was a very easy card to create!  I started with an A2 size card.  Using the Bonus piece from "Stitched Stackers" die I cut the etched line through my cs horizontally before adding a score line above and below it.  Then  I cut two flowers from white cardstock and one from hot pink cardstock - sandwiched the pink in with the white for some sweet dimension and finally added my sentiment.

Try it for yourself!! : ) it is easy peasy.

I am entering this card in the Calling All Sistahs challenge by CAS-ual Fridays stamps.  I hope you will check out this great challenge and consider adding your encouragement!! : )



Here are links to the supplies I used for easy shopping : )

Bodacious #51-413

Stitched Stackers #51-416

Treasured Sentiments #30-356

That is all for me today - please check back again tomorrow for more from Sweet Spring 2018!


BIG (((HUGS)))

Patti, I am so pleased you did join us, I saw your comment after mine the other day and was so pleased you did make a special card for us and are helping spread the word. This is a CAS beauty. I adore the slight dimension added and the calm feel to the card. I hope you get to join us each challenge-we start a new one on the 18th of each month-the more we can spread the word the more we can help remind people the importance of self checks. Love seeing you at Calling All Sistahs and sending my love x

I have a stamp and a stencil in the same flower design and now I need a die? I think maybe after seeing your wonderful use of it, Patti.
