This was a fun card to make!
First, I ran three different colours of cardstock – Daffodil Delight, Basic Black and Whisper White – through my Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine using the new Fun Flowers Bigz Die from the Occasions Mini Catalogue. And the fun part? Layering the flowers with different combinations of colours and sizes. It’s like doing a puzzle!
Once I decided on this combination for my first card, I added a Basic Black Glimmer Brad to the center to hold the flower in place.
Next, I stamped the "Friend" greeting from the You’re a Gem stamp set in Basic Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock and punched it out with the Modern Label Punch. I punched a second Modern Label from Basic Black cardstock and cut it on half vertically to layer behind the first piece.
The Daffodil Delight patterned paper is from the Sweet Stitches designer series paper package. I thought it worked really well with his card and the Basic Black and Daffodil Delight Grosgrain ribbons I used as an accent. Please leave me a comment if you like this card or have any questions on the Fun Flowers Bigz die.
