Damask Divas Dream Pop Blog Hop

Welcome to Damask Divas Dream Pop Blog Hop!!My name is Traci Williams and I am an Independent Consultant with Close To My Heart.If you came from Amie Kiger's Mimi Myself and I blog, you are in the right place. If you have jumped here and just discovered our blog hop, feel free to check the list at Damask Divas blog to find the complete list of blog hop participants.

To make the lower portion of the box, select <3D Object> <(Letter H)> and change size of height to 2.75.  To cut top of box, select <Shift+3D Object> <Letter H> and change height to 2.75.  Use on single mats for cutting as the finished images are too large for one mat.

For square cutouts, I used a my Fiskars Paper Trimmer and cut 6 pieces at 2" length and 2.25" for height.  I made 12 cutouts in all, 6 on outside of box and 6 on inside of box.

For the flower, <Accent 2> <Letter N> and change height to 1.70.  For the leaves, use <Shift+3D Object> <Letter N> make 2 images and change height on one to be 1.2 and the other to 1.  I trimmed them up and placed them under the flowers.  Best way to assemble flowers is with a low heat hot glue.  I then finished the center using a hot pink sparkle from Sparkles Red, Pink, & Purple Assortment.  I also added smaller sparkles to box from same assortment.

For the fan under the flower, I used a rosette cut <Accent 4><Letter J> change height to 1.20, fold at cuts and shape to half circle and glue to a scrap paper to hold shape.

For sentiment, select "Happy Mother's Day" from <Base/Fonts> and change height to 1.90 and width to 4.10.

The card is matted 4.25 x 5.50 base cut then cut 4 more pieces by decreasing cut size by .25".  Simple to do with paper trimmer, even gives you the A2 paper size to help you get started and all lines are at .25".  From the Dream Pop paper pack, I cut out the phrase "BEAUTIFUL" and cut it to fit.  I used Opaque Pearl Flourishes and colors from the Sparkles Assortments.
  I used purple, pink, dark pink and gray sparkles.   Use a glue tape or glue runner to work on matted pages and then use foam tape to add sentiment.
