I won the teapot border and multi-layer flower diecut from Cottage Cutz. My punchie pal, Gingerbeary8 designs for them and there was a contest I won. Thanks Bearzi.
I've been dying to use the teapot border punch and the multi-layered flowers. So, I thought I'd use them together.
Mrs. Bearzi has a b/day coming up this month, so I thought I would make this card in her honor. I started out trying not to use her style; but, before I knew it, I was in Bearzi-Land, kind of like Dollywood.
I thought I was finished until I realized there was no sparkle. Well, Carol never has a card without sparkles and lots of details, so I set out to punch gosh knows how many leaves out of sparkly paper and added them everywhere around the flowers. I also added glitter to the sentiment tag and some to the teapots, etc. Added some bling swirls, textile ef, faux stitching and a border punch at the bottom and I was done.
The neat thing about these diecuts is that they have grooves that cut out with them, so you can bend and twist as you like. I popped up the flowers by bending and added the buttons.
Thanks for taking a look and even though my photo didn't come out to well, I hope you enjoy it IRL Bearzi. Hugz Alwayz!
P.S. I used the teapot border diecut and a multi-layer flower diecut on the inside too.
