The Famous Petal Card Die




For those of you who don't have it or want it, I'm showing you the back of the die. It's like a square with four half circles on each side. It is very hard to find. Having said that, you could probably draft your own template and cut them individually....hint, hint. But here is my third and final project of the day (Good Lord, I have to fix dinner yet and it's 7 p.m.!) This is the heart shaped mini. I used SU paper on this one. I love the combination of teals and browns. There is a box for the mini made from just two die cuts and glued together. Then the mini book itself which has pockets for whatever your heart desires. Some of the little tags I made for the pockets are actually small books.....more opportunities for pictures! The large rose on the front of the box I made from Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die and the center is from the Sizzix 3D flower die (getting to be a favorite). The mini book cover has Recollections and Prima flowers and the leaves are a punch. I added ample bling everywhere. I didn't really make this a themed book so that whoever it goes to could do their own thing. I have decided that all today's projects are for sale. If you are interested, email me for prices. I am addicted to this die! It could be worse, right?

These, and the ones in the previous post, are all gorgeous, Mary. That tool for binding looks like a great thing. In other words, I guess you take off the spirals from the purchased books and then re-bind them. Cool, if I'm not missing the mark.
Beautiful, beautiful toppings!
Hugs, Diane

Oh my Mary~
These last 2 projects are the most beautiful I've ever seen I think! I love brown and teal too and the papers and trims you've chosen make this book and box a masterpiece. I find that even with the Cricut, which I love, I still like my Sizzix dies...and Nestabilities, too. I love anything with lots of pockets so your previous project is awesome!! I must look for that 3-D die...I'm obsessed with it now based on your work with it.
Thank you for sharing these beautiful pieces of art and also for the tips you always give so generously. I've missed reading posts and now must get caught up.
Hope you had a nice Valentine's Day...you were obviously very busy! :D
