Flower Tutorial

Happy Thursday,

Here, Finally, is the second part of the flower card and box tutorial.  In the tut I have shown the flower in yellow so here is the card I made to use the yellow flower.  I have mounted this onto a filigree card cut with the new Sue Wilson striplet die.  I love this die, as you may be able to tell over the next few weeks as I have made loads with it!

I understand that Mrs Duck has a beautiful card featuring this die today on her blog well worth a visit!

For today hopefully you will enjoy the video and, as always, enjoy...


  1. Hi John. I loved the purple version and this is just as good. I am off to enjoy the video now. Thank you.Take care.

  3. Hola John
    Mrs Duck will be showing a card when she's introduced a hammer to her laptop!
    Your flower is divine as is the card.
    Off to drop Mr D at work then I can sort the laptop and watch your video.
    Have a great day.

  17. Hi John,
    what a very superb card, with a very beautiful and superb flower. Thank you soooooooooo! much for the wonderful tutorial. Thank you also to Wendy for the very great camera work. I am so pleased I watched this as I have that book binding glue and have never used it. Now I shall be using all the time for my flower making. Am about to watch your tutorial on the box, as this is another superb creation.
