I actually have 2 cards to share with you today as I had die cut quite a few of the flowers and leaves out, and had more than enough to make a 2nd card. Here's my first:
I have to admit that what excited me the most at first when I saw the Into the Blooms: Dahlia dies, was not the flower, but the leaves. Both the pine sprig and the Dahlia leaves are gorgeous and have so much detail! But after cutting out the 3 layer Dahlia, I fell in LOVE with all the dimension this flower has!! I started my card just like Shauna did hers and taped off all four edges, but then instead of water coloring, I ink blended using Autumn Rose ink. I used the All is Bright die to cut out my sentiment from a brushed gold cardstock, and then also decided to cut one of the pine sprigs from the brushed gold cardstock too. The other leaves were ink blended with DOX inks, and the Dahlia's were die cut with Autumn Rose cardstock, and then ink blended with the matching ink around the edges.
Once I had all my pieces glued down I added a few crystal gems and this card was finished.
Using my left over pieces I started this card with a white on white card base using an older PTI die called Bold Borders: Polka Dot Die.
Because the background is a little busy, I simply added my flower and leaves and then finished with a die cut sentiment from MB called Special Merry Christmas. CAS and I love how this one turned out too! Thank you Shauna for inspiring me for both of these cards.
Remember to check out Shauna's video HERE and then play along...there's a $25 gift card up for grabs if your card is picked. :0)
Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
