Daffodil close up

OK, now you know the secret...we used the poinsettisa dies with the Daffodil Delight cardstock--isn't it beautiful. I love it when we can use a die for multiple uses...since the poinsettia is primarily viewed as a Christmas flower---we have now expanded the use for an all year die by changing the color of the paper and using a slightly larger flower center.

I used removable tape to hold the petal embossing die inside the open cutting die---this make it easy to do the cutting and embossing all in one step.

Here are the layered dies:


Here's how they are taped together with removable tape.
