Virginia's Versatile Vases Series #3

Hello friends!
Welcome to the week 3 of "Virginia's Versatile Series"!
note: the vases are VERY popular. The stamps/dies bundle are out of stock over Altenew right now. Product links are listed below. You can purchase them separately over

Today's card has a combination of a few techniques. And it was so fun to create!

I started out with creating the vase with pattern paper.
dearest friend
As you can see, I used two different pattern paper and with the inlaid die-cutting,
Basically, you can die cut various pieces and fit them back like a puzzle!

I highly suggest that you play around and see what you can come up with.

Once the vase part is "figured out", I added Dotted Blooms. 
I cut a small slit on the vase opening and inserted the flowers.....(boom!). 😁😍

dearest friend-002
For the background, I stamped the outline images from Dotted Blooms.
I then popped the entire piece over Fun Foam and left the Dotted Blooms hanging.

I hope that you enjoy this series as much as I do. These cards are the ones that I share so far.

What a great idea to use patterned paper for the vase and background. Cutting the slit to insert the flowers is perfect as it hides the stems!

This fabulous set of cards keeps growing!! What I love about today's card (besides the gorgeous flower) is how you grounded everything with floral outline images - a terrific look!
