Peony Garden

Today I'm sharing my second card made using the Peony Garden Bundle.  When I opened the dies for this suite of products I gasped - there are so many and I was completely overwhelmed!  Thankfully I calmed myself down and took a good look at the stamp set and dies and figured out which dies coordinate with the stamp set.  That left a set of dies for making the 3D peony and leaves.  

I created this card along with a video to help you understand how easy it actually is to make beautiful 3D peonies!  I used Magenta Madness for my peony on this card - it matches perfectly with the bouquet of peonies my neighbour brought over from her garden.  I have one peony plant that I put in this year so I hope to have beautiful peonies in my house next year!

  1. Cut Thick Whisper White cardstock 4 1/4" x 11" and fold in half to form card base.
  2. Cut out peony pieces using the 4 flower dies from Magenta Madness cardstock
  3. Cut out 2 flower centres from Bumblebee cardstock
  4. Cut out 3 large leaf pieces from Just Jade cardstock
  5. Cut out 3 small leaf pieces from Mint Macaron cardstock
  6. Assemble the peony starting with the smallest piece.  Insert it into the slot in the next size, align the bottom and adhere with a Glue Dot (TIP, the Take Your Pick tool works great to pick up the glue dots and add them to the layers).  Repeat until you've assembled all 4 pieces and have your flower.  The trick to this is to make sure the bottom pieces of your peony all align - it's easy to do.  Check out my video for more instructions
  7. Insert some Mini Dimensionals between the petals to give the flower dimension.
  8. Insert the centres and adhere using Mini Glue Dots
  9. Add the outside pieces of leaves to the larger pieces using Glue Dots - you can align the edges to get them into the right place.  Adhere to the back of the peony using a Glue Dot.
  10. Cut out Magenta Madness cardstock 3" x 3"
  11. Cut out Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper 2 3/4" x 2 3/4" and adhere to the Magenta Madness cardstock using Stampin' Seal.
  12. Adhere to the card base using Dimensionals.
  13. Adhere the peony to this piece using Dimensionals.
  14. Wrap Magenta Madness ribbon around card base and tie a bow on the left hand side about 1 1/4" from the bottom.  You can secure this in place by adding a Glue Dot to the back.
  15. Stamp the sentiment using Magenta Madness ink on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock.
  16. Punch out using the Timeless Label punch.
  17. Adhere to the card base using Dimensionals.
