Good Morning to you all! Allison here and I have a lot of small die cut flowers in bright summer colours to make up today’s card. We just added a living wall to our yard which was the inspiration for my card today. I don’t know about you, but paper flowers are much easier to keep alive haha. If you have noticed, I have been using a lot of these tiny flowers in my handmade card project recently, and the reason is that I’m simply obsessed. There is something so gratifying about working with these fun dies; the possibilities are endless!
How to make card:
- Start by cutting your panel using white card stock and the largest Die from the Inside Scallop nested dies. I cut an additional one to use behind my panel with a light blue edge.
- I staggered shelves that were coloured in copics (E37,35,33) and attached with foam tape. Some distress oxide in tumbled glass was used above each shelf for a soft blue effect.
- I coloured strips of paper in copics (BG11, RV13,Y04,BV01) and die cut the flowers out. A white gelly roll pen was used in the center of the flowers.
- I glued down the flowers to vines and stems to create the living wall.
- My sentiment was stamped in Versafine Black ink and heat embossed in Clear.
This really was a fun project and something that I think could be as simple or as elaborate as you wanted it to be. Simple enough that any beginner carmaker could handle it, and fun enough, that advanced carmakers just can’t resist. Many people are intimidated by these small peices, but let me tell you, its an addiction…a beautiful addiction.
