Layered Cosmo's


Happy July first!!
It brings us to a new challenge theme at Dies R Us 
and the theme is SUMMER!

Nothing speaks summer to me like a garden full of pretty posies
so that is exactly what I went with for my DT card!

Memory box released some new dies in May and the Layered Cosmos was one of them!
I used Tim Holtz distress inks Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick and
Cracked Pistachio with blending brushes for my flowers.

For the leaves I die cut 6 from the Lawn Fawn Hibiscus set.
I also used Precious Marieke Flowery Branch under the flowers
for more 'greenery'!

The die cut HUGS greeting is a Tutti Designs word set
which doesn't seem to be in store anymore
but I gave a link for another HUGS die below that is
very similar to the one I used!
All of this was arranged on a Cricut EB folder panel.

I cut the flowery branch again and snipped it in two,
placing one piece under the smaller flower and the other piece inside the card.

Here is a list and links of the dies I used:

Tim Holtz Distress Inks Cracked Pistachio~Picked Raspberry~Worn Lipstick
Tutti Designs Hugs Word Set (OOS)
can use Karen Burniston Word Set 14

Make sure to visit the Dies R Us challenge blog to see all the pretty
summery creations from my teamies, join in with us too!!

What a beautiful card, Diane. Brought back such sweet memories of when we lived in South Africa. I had cosmos growing in our front yard. Those so pretty. Haven't been able to grow any here - maybe too hot I think. Your embossed background is just perfect to showcase these beautiful flowers. xx
