O What Fun To Design Card

As mentioned in my previous post through the month of February the Silhouette Plus Forum is having a design challenge using a letter. The letter is to be replicated and welded to form a design. This is a card using the letter o to design a flower.  After replicating and welding and replicating what I had welded this is what I came up with.

I replicated it and  deleted the cutouts. Then I replicated it  mirrored and welded the two together to make a card shape. I replicated the original again and resized it so it would be smaller. This is how it looks on my work space in Studio.  I filled in with a Just Lovely paper and added my registration marks so I could print it out. I made sure that none of the design was touching the hatch marks. This is important to get the marks to be read properly.
After it was printed and cut out I pinched and gently folded the cut out flowers.  The smallest one I added an irock gem to. Then adhered it to the larger petal which is pop dotted on the card base, I love how it looks. Let me know what you think? 

Thank you for stopping by and reading all the way through this post. Do come back. If I can figure out how to make a cutting file for making a woven heart basket I will be posting a woven heart basket. Something I used to make as a child.
