Hi, Diane here with you today!
I have a very summery card to show you!

I made my flowers first, using the newly released
PoppyStamps Velvet Blossom.
I had a bit of surprise when I cut this die,
as each petal cut separately, then you put the flower together
petal by petal.
I loved that, it made each flower much more real!

Once the petals were cut and embossed,
I colored them with Susan's Gardens Pan Panstels Flower Coloring Kit.
using the Magenta color on pink card stock.

The center of the flowers and the stems also cut separately.

I cut a Spellbinders Floral Oval from white card stock.
I stenciled it using Memory Box Texture Tessatina stencil,
giving a nice, soft background look.

The butterflies were cut from heavyweight vellum twice,
one for the bottom and one for the top.
The bottom piece I did not emboss.
Aren't they pretty?
I think they make such a statement!

The background paper is from Wild Rose Studio
and I created a bow to finish.

A few things I pretty much use daily in the making of my cards
are Scor-tape, Large and Mini Cuttlehug adapter plates,
Cheery Lynn Designs Crafters Tools.

Thank you for visiting with me!

Oh, I do like that flower die! It's nice that you can overlap the petals, which gives it a more realistic look. Very pretty!
