If Friends Were Flowers

Hi bloggers!  I cut the If Friends Were Flowers die in both white and black.  I used the black as an offset shadow behind the white die cut.  I added a white vellum backing to it.  I cut the die again in white and nipped away allthe flowers.  I used Fossilized Amber Distress ink and spomged the larger sunflowers, then added them to the base die cut.  I used Spun Sugar, Tattered Rose and Shaded Lilac Distress inks on the smaller flowers and inked the leafy areas with Bundled Sage Distress ink.    I glued all the flowers on to the base die cut.  I added glue to the centres of the larger flowers and then sprnkled it with clear micro beads.  I added small white pearls to all the small flower centres.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are  5"  x  9 1/2"  in size.  All for now,  Sue x

A great card and a die I treated myself to. I made a cute card for my nephew who just moved into a new house so a new house/first Christmas card. Love your sweet card.
