Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #207

 Hello friends.  I just got Concord & 9th Friendly Florals Dies and have been playing with them.  I cut the flowers in several different colors and wanted to use the purple ones so I made a card for Tic Tac Toe Challenge #207 using the diagonal row from bottom left to top right - Purple, Dry Embossing, Die Cut.

ETA:  My card was one of the Team Picks at Tic Tac Toe Challenge.


I die cut the two layers of flower from Highland Heather and blended the same color ink on the ends of the petals before gluing just the top parts together.  The flower centers are cut from Crumb Cake and also blended with ink.  I die cut the stems & leaves from Wild Wasabi (retired) and then blended them with ink.  I dry embossed the top 2/3 of the white panel with Tasteful Textile EF and then stamped the sentiment from Gina K. Designs Birthday Greetings on the bottom of the panel.  I added a strip of pattern paper from my stash and then mounted the flowers with foam tape and glued the stems down.  I really  like how the card turned out.  These Concord & 9th dies are so easy to use and make lovely flowers.
I will link to Beautiful Blossoms Challenge  as I love to make cards with flowers. They have a lovely mood board and purple & green are two of the colors.

I will also link to NBUS as this is the first time I have used the new dies.
Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.
Happy Stamping,
