Expressions Plus Precious Phrase

Hello, Scrapping Cottage friends and thank you for stopping by. This is Beverly Polen and I am a guest designer today for the Scrapping Cottage Blog.  Today I am featuring one of the beautiful, recently released Expressions Plus Design Dies, "Precious" and the CottageCutz Pram Die from the April CottageCutz Baby Designs Release. 

Before I discuss the card, I want you to know that the Scrapping Cottage has a MEMORIAL DAY SALE going on!!!  Click on the below to review the sale items.

I love the new CottageCutz script dies as they are made with such a beautiful font.  They are also a wonderful size.  The "precious" die used on this card is approximate 4"W x 1"H.   And the darling vintage baby carriage, also showcased on this card, is an awesome die.  One can make so many variations of the carriage by using different colors of card stock and other crafting products.  I wanted to dress this one up, so I added pearls and sparkling glitter.  May this card inspire you to try the CottageCutz Pram die to create such a beauty!



  • Cut a 6" x 12" piece of pink card stock and fold it in the middle for the card base  
  • Cut a 6" x 6" piece of designer paper with shades of pink and green
  • Adhere the 6" x 6" designer paper to the front of the card base
  • Using the CottageCutz Pram Die, cut the baby carriage from a piece of white card stock, and repeat with pink card stock
  • Adhere the pieces together (I attached one carriage to another to offset mine)
  • Cover the center piece of the carriage with white sparkly glitter
  • Add crafting pearls to the carriage 
  • Attach this to the center of the card front (as seen in the first photo)
  • Cut out several pink flowers using the CottageCutz Tree of Nature Die
  • Cut out several green stems and leaves using the CottageCutz Grass, Trees & Vines die
  • Attach the flowers to the stems
  • Add pink stickles to the center of the flowers
  • Add the stems and flowers to the bottom and left side of the card
  • Cut out the "precious" sentiment from pink card stock using the CottageCutz Precious Die and add it to the top center of the card
  • Cut out a flower using the CottageCutz 3-D Flower #7 die
  • Shape with a stylus the three smallest flowers, cover them with a white glitter, adhere them together, and add Prills to the center

  • Attach the flower to the bottom, right of the card front

That finishes the card, and there are more photos below.  Let me know what your thoughts are about this card by leaving comments.  I love reading comments!  Before you go, I want to share more information with you about the newly release Expression Plus Designs Dies.

The Expression Plus Design Dies (35 word dies) were released just two weeks ago, and the font of these dies is beautiful! The word dies are definitely ones you will want for your crafting toolbox! To give you an idea of the size and font of these dies, our video artist, Janet, prepared the video below that showcases some of the Expression Plus Design Dies. 

These are the CottageCutz dies used for today's card share:
