Tasteful Textures & Tasteful Background Dies
As a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator I receive a quarterly magazine, Stampin' Success.  It contains lots of good ideas, card samples and fun techniques.  The card I'm sharing with you today is one of the magazine's samples.  See below for the how-to's.
  • The Grapefruit Grove base is 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 and is scored at 4 1/4.
  • The Petal Pink layer is 5 1/4 x 4.
  • The Pretty Peacock layer is 5 x 3 3/4, and I used the Tasteful Background die twice to cut out the flowers.  
  • Next I used the same die and Grapefruit Grove and Petal Pink cardstock to cut out extra petals.
  • I cut a 2nd piece of Pretty Peacock at 5 x 3 3/4 and glued it to the back of the first Pretty Peacock layer, (the die-cut layer). 
  • Using a fine-tip glue pen, I carefully placed different color petals in the empty petal holes on the card front.  (It really doesn't take that long, honest).
  • Next, I cut a 3 1/4 x 1 7/8 piece of Vellum card stock.  Used my Banner Triple punch to cut out a flag.  Glued it to the card front with snail.
  • I stamped a piece of Whisper White with a stamp from Tasteful Textures and Grapefruit Grove ink, and my words with Pretty Peacock ink.  I cut this piece out with one of the Stitched Nested Labels dies.  Technique alert:  Repositioned dies. 
    I ran my Stitched Nested Label die only halfway through the Big Shot.  Repositioned the die, making sure the image lined up, and ran the die halfway through again.
  • I used snail to glue the ribbon to the back of this die cut, then added dimensionals.  
  • All done.  Remember to decorate your envelope.
