I’m using Vertical Greetings II Die-namics and Stamp Set for my card, along with a bunch of Die-namics dies. First of all I cut out the die with Sweet Tooth card stock. To give it a little more body, I made two layers of card stock, glued together. Then I stamped the fabulous sentiment and added some patterned paper to the bottom of the die cut. Next I assembled my card base with some patterned paper, some stitching, and some bling. Then I added a Die-namics Large Leafy Flourish die cut and tied around some black seam binding in a fluffy bow. Finally, I popped up the sentiment panel on foam, and started arranging my Die-namics Larger Royal Rose and Die-namics Mini Royal Rose flowers. I also added a few Die-namics Royal Leaves to fill it out.

Here’s a close up of the flower arrangement:

And another of the sentiment:

For the inside, I stamped another sentiment from the set and created a triple border with my Die-namics Squiggle Border die. I cut two from patterned paper and one from Black Licorice card stock. I simply added a strip of 1/8” Scor Tape down the center and, using grid paper for accurate alignment, adhered them, staggering the “squiggles” to create the design.
