The Simple Flower


The Simple Flower Embosslits Die is another goodie that will be leaving us at the end of the month.  So sad to see these items leave us but it also paves the way for all the new goodies head our way!


I sponged Daffodil Delight in the center of each flower, cut around one side of one petal of each flower added a Old Olive brad to each center.  By cutting one slice of one petal on each flower gave me the ability to nestle them together (or over-lap) a little closer.  For a little texture I used both W. White and D. Delight textured card stocks.  The contrast really happened when I stamped the sentiment in BLACK with the addition of black halfbacks just underneath.

Inside ~


Just underneath the petal where I made my single cut, I placed a dimesional which gave each flower more depth.  Can you tell here looking at the side view?

Supplies needed ~ All are SU! unless otherwise noted

  • Card stock – W. White (smooth and textured), O. Olive, D. Delight (textured)
  • Tools – Simple Flower Die, Little Leaves Die, Beautiful Wings Die and Scalloped Edge Border.
  • Misc. –  O. Olive Ribbon (retired) and Halfbacks from my stash

Just a simple card for you today, although I think it packs a punch! Hope you enjoyed it *smile*
