Today’s card features one of the my favorite items in the Occasions Catalog, and that’s the the Timeless Tags Thinlits Dies, shown on page 23. Check it out! It cuts out oval shaped tags with some fascinating intricate details that can be added. For this card I used the flower framelit and decided to do some paper piecing so that the details of it can really shine. Sticking with the flower theme I added texture to the background with the Petal Burst Embossing Folder

Let’s Take a Closer Look
Using the Flower die from the Timeless Tags Thinlits Dies, I cut the image four different times. First in Early Espresso, using just the outlined “flower frame”. I attached this to the Soft Sky Banner with the Fine-Tipped Glue Pen. Next I cut it out in Pear Pizzazz saving just the leaves and stem, which I adhered to the corresponding spot inside the “flower frame with the glue pen. I did the same thing with the Crushed Curry flower center and the Whisper White petals. The Soft Sky pieces were not pieced in to the flower frame. Instead I let the blue from the banner show through. I’ll admit, this card was putzy but I love how it turned out.
