Pretty Petite Petals

Hi Everyone ~  I've updated this post to let you know how I made the thin layer behind the framelit die.  For those of you who use them a little or even a lot might notice there's a pretty big gap between the sizes of the framelits.  That's great when you want to do some paper-piercing, but not so great sometimes when you want a thinner color underneath.  Below this post I give instructions on how to make it thinner if you don't already know.  I'm sure there are other ways too, this is just what I've been doing. :)

Today's card is a challenge from the Red Hot Stampers group that I'm a part of.  I'm SO far behind on these and want to try and catch up.  We'll see how it goes in the coming weeks.  I definitely wanted to make something that reminds me of spring and summer so I hauled out two sets with flowers that have coordinating punches.  It's so nice to punch out flowers sometimes instead of needing to hand cut them. :)

Instructions on how to make a thin layer behind framelits.

I guess I didn't start with the main piece, but in this sample it's a white piece cut out with the second smallest Deco Label Framelit.  I also cut out two of the same size in the color I want underneath my top piece.  Below is a picture of how you cut the pieces up so you can layer them under your main piece.

This is how it looks after you attach two of the pieces from the picture above using the pieces on the right side and attach them under the main piece.

This shows the bottom side of the above picture.

Next you attach the two side pieces.  This is how it looks finished. :)

This is how the underside of the finished piece looks.

I hope anyone who sees this is able to use it...enjoy!

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
