Fleur De Lis


Not sure what that means but to me it means gorgeous if I can ever get it out of the die! I love this, but it is some what hard to punch all the little have whats out then get it out without tearing it. What I did this time was, I ran it through the Big Shot 3 times, then took my paper piercer and poked every thing out that was going to the trash, then took my stylist and lightly rubbed around it until I got part lose and ta da! Very time consuming, but man, look at what I wound up with. I love it!!! I added 3 tiny Roses and some white leaves I punched out with a MS punch, added 4 large pearls and said that's it!! The wine looking cs is from SU but I'm not sure of the name, the white is Gina K PL. Thanks for dropping by to look and have a fantastic day!!

I have this one too, Olga. Yup, PIB. From what I have been reading, the round ones are worse! This came out beautiful for all the hassle. I'm so glad you moved Stella so she is safe and sound. Lol!

Gorgeous Olga! I've had this on my want list for a while, I guess after seeing what you did with it, I'll have to get it!

Olga,
This is a beauty. So sorry you had that much trouble getting it out of the die. I heard they are a pain. I don't have any, altought I do like the look not sure about the problems.

Theresa said...

What a beauty!!! This card made me swoon! Old fashioned word..get the smelling salts! Worth all the work.

Think you have 3 layers of backdrop on your blog....ends with the blue green with flowers, flashes a red orange one and a purple one!

Sue said...

WOW! GF you are HOT this week with day after day of the most beautiful cards! Absolutely gorgeous, and I agree with you. I have used that die before and it is a pain in the 'you know where' to get the die cut out without damaging it. Have a great weekend!

Lori said...

Lovely! Good to know about the patience needed for the die, I don't have it, so I won't get it!!! LOL {{{Fleur de lis is a stylized lily, Fleur=flower lis=lily, in French; that 3 petal symbol}}}

This sounds pretty labor intensive but it sure turned out BEEEE-UTIFUL!

Olga, your card is absolutely darling, love the roses. I too know what you mean about it being hard to remove from the die and also had problem with it not cutting through. I have found if I use a lighter weight CS it comes out better.
