Patriotic Peonies | By Jeanne Jachna


It’s Independence Day here in the USA!  Most of us have been lucky to enjoy a long weekend .. maybe you’re having a cookout and going to see some fireworks later in the evening! I thought I’d  give the Peony Bloom Layer Dies a Patriotic makeover!

I started with a color block base of ombre blues.  I selected three different shades of blue, trimmed panels in different widths, taped them together on their reverse and then trimmed the panel to fit my A2 (4.25 x 5.5″) card base.

Next I cut the Peony Bloom dies in three shades of red using the darkest for Layer A.  The bright red makes me think of summer geraniums!

The “thank you” sentiment is from the new Make A Statement Clear Stamp set.  Matching dies make it easy to cut out each of the sentiments making them so versatile!

A special thank you to all of you who left  a comment on Angel’s post last Tuesday!  Birch Press Design was the sponsor of the Summer Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop and offered up  winners choice of any one cover plate die from the store on the June 27 post.  Random Number Generator selected a winner for us…  Kris!   Congratulations Kris!  Thanks for your lovely comments!

Have a fabulous 4th of July!
