I could blame night duty or distraction or just my brain, but it didn’t work too well today… but I think I managed a save the cards, what do you think?
You can see the video process here or Watch it at Youtube.
I used Altenew’s new Layered Medallions Cover Die B and some of their fab cardstocks (I am seriously going to have to get ALL the colours) as well as the Spring Daisy set to bring these creations together.
All the products I used are linked below, you can also you can find more info at the Altenew Blog. Hope you day is going better than mine lol.

They are both beautiful!!! The second one reminds me of a beautiful giraffe pattern.
Oh, these are fabulous and sooo pretty!
Beautiful! No debacle as far as I can see! TFS!
Your persistence paid off. Great cards. Love that die.
Oh my goodness, Therese! You must have infinite patience. I’m afraid mine would have gone straight into the round file. But I’m so glad yours didn’t – it’s beautiful! I’ll just be using the other method…
Goodness!!! Therese, you are persistent my dear, WOW!! what a labor of love and patience!!!!!
First of all…..putting all of the hundreds (maybe thousands) of dots of glue, sheeesh!! wonder how long did it take you to finish that part only to have the darn little pieces not cooperating.
Once, twice, three time’s the charm…..maybe? Bravo!! you finally did it!!! Both cards are beautiful, your patience and perseverance were rewarded, ata girl!!!!!
Thank you for this super fun (I was really laughing out loud while watching and listening to you struggle) video, always a delight.
I love this so much, love the purple with the black it looks so stunning. I think the negative die cut looks amazing with the Altenew’s new Layered Medallions Cover Die B. Really inspiring too. Hugs x
Gorgeous cards, Therese! I love how you added bits of black glass glitter to the inside of the flowers…such a lovely touch after all that WORK!
What I like best is your persistence…way too often I envision something then spend what seems like hours doing it. These cards are exceptional!!! Thank you for your excellent video.
loved the post -sometimes mistakes are a blessing
Nice save on the card! I would have given up and left the room! They are both beautiful, by the way.
The cards are lovely, and a bit later I’ll have ta look at the video.
You would definitely win the prize for the most number of glue dots, LOL. Nice cards.
Two beautiful cards Therese, cant believe how you perservered. They are stunning and I can remember doing diecuting and making life harder for myself then realising after working so hard to save a card that it could have been done a different way with so much ease. Great die cuts with the multi layers.
Two great cards. You are far more patient and persistent than me! I would have given up – ok lets face it we know I wouldn’t have attempted to place all those tiny bits! Can’t wait to see the orange and pink version though 🙂 Enjoy the rest of the weekend and stay warm and dry.
You win the 2017 Perseverence Award 🙂 Well worth the effort – two gorgeous cards!
Great cards Therese! They are both very lovely. I truly admire your perseverance, but it was ultimately worth it. I loved listening to your description of events. The cover plates are so pretty. Definitely on my wish list.
Debacle…??Well your cards look soooo beautiful with such an intricate design…I have to see your video to know what you mean..!! 🙂
What a great video, Therese … couldn’t help giggling at your commentary when you were being so tenacious with matt medium and those fabulous die cuts! Your persistence was certainly worth it, both cards are so striking and bold! Now how about the pink and orange versions …??? Hugs, Anita 🙂
Such beautiful cards! 🙂
Your persistence paid off! Both cards look fabulous, albeit a bit fiddly!
