New Flower Ribbon Dies

As anyone can see, I am not an everyday blogger.  I guess I should put my cards here more often than I do.  I'll try to be better at this.

I've got some new Creatables flower dies from Marianne Design that I just love and just have to show them off.  I didn't do much to the flowers other than cut them out with the dies and add ribbon.  When you cut with these dies, you end up with little slits to put the ribbon through.  There is so much one can probably do with them, but they are still new and just had to make something so I made these little gift cards.  Now wouldn't they look nice tucked in a gift bag or tied to a gift bag, bouquet, or basket.  I have more new dies that I'm going to make gift cards with, when I do I'll show them here.  The cards here, I cut out with the Nestabilities, they are so much fun to cut with.

I love to make the gift cards when I have all the papers that coordinate.  Also, some of the dies are pretty hard to get the paper off.  I used waxpaper between the die and the paper and that made it a lot easier.  Before I bought the waxpaper, I used a cellophane bag and a plastic bag, both of them worked great too.  Where there's a will, there's a way and I'm sure to find it.  Enjoy!  I just love making the flowers.
