Concord & 9th Blossom

Happy Friday!  I'm back to share some more projects featuring Concord & 9th's July Release.  Yay!  The Blossom Die might just be my favorite thing in the entire release.  That being said, all of their products work together so perfectly that I don't think I'd want to live without any of them. :) And this card is a great example of that.
I started this card by making the tag first.  After stamping a sentiment from O Christmas Tree, I used the Bags & Tags dies to create the tag.  I love that these dies are open ended, so that you can adjust to whatever height you need.  Such a cool idea!
Next I ran the Blossom Die through the die cut machine about 16 different times, cutting each color multiple times.  As I paper pieced the colors into the white outline, I left a few pieces as single layers, but most of them I layered 2 or 3 times to create added dimension.  I just love how they puff up at varying heights.  For several days I planned to keep the tag just as a tag, but at the last minute I decided I also wanted to see how it would look on a card, so I ended up doing both.  (My die cut machine got an extra big workout for these projects.)  I didn't want to take any focus away from that beautiful flowers, so I added a few score lines on the right hand side of my card base and called it good. 
I have a few more projects that I created with the Blossom Die and coordinating stamp set (you'll love that, too!).  I truly could not stop creating with them.  I LOVE them, and the ideas kept coming and coming.  So stay tuned, because I'll be sharing more in the coming weeks.  I hope you'll have a fabulous weekend.  We've been away from home this week and are gearing up for a super hot and humid weekend.  I'm feeling especially grateful for air conditioning at the moment. :)  Thanks for stopping by today!
