I am back with another project created with Spellbinders Clematis Etched Dies.
The Clematis Etched Dies is part of the Garden Favorites Collection by Susan Tierney-Cockburn. It includes a set of four thin metal dies to make this robust Queen of Climbers flower blossom on any of your projects! Finished flower with foliage measures approximately 0.75 x 2.75 x 3.00 in./1.90 x 7.00 x 7.60 cm.
As you can probably see, I did not follow the exact instructions..... my bad.
However, I think it's quite alright to bend however you like with the petals. I simply ran out of time to try out the different ways of folding.
To add detail on the petals, I used Must have-(white) Gel Pens to highlight the bent area.
For the background, I created three rectangles panels (see here) ...I find myself doing this quite often. It's likely because I have the trusty rectangle dies!?
To add shading and highlight, I applied inks all around the edges of each petals and leaves.

You're not bad for not following directions, you just created a new look. The white to highlight folds is a nice touch and the background rectangles highlight the flower. Beautiful!
Gorgeous flower, Virginia, and I love how you accented it with the gel pen! Perfect with the patterned rectangles behind!!
This clematis die is truly versatile...could even stand in as a poinsettia for Christmas. It looks beautiful on your card especially with the white gel pen detail.
Ooooo this is gorgeous! Great design!
Great card. The white gel pen really adds a nice touch as do the three rectangular patterned paper pieces.
love how you're added your own spin on the flowers Virginia. Such a pretty card. The way you have done your background is awesome as well
Simple die but such a pretty result!
I like the rectangle backgrounds and the white gel pen details--very pretty.
I love the flower sets. I need to try one, they look so great put together.
I love the dimension! Beautiful flower for your card!
