Now onto the details of my card. I use the sketch as my main layout idea but changed it quite a bit because I wanted to focus on this fun new die set. First I figured out how to cut the diagonal piece by cutting along one edge of the die then fussy cutting it out to create a stripe. Then using the outside die and inside mat layer of the die I cut a frame. I really like the way this turned out. Since the designer paper was purple and white I decided to stick to those colors throughout for the most part. Now lets take a close up look at my flowers.

For each flower I used 2 large petals, 1 medium, and one small. Plus one leaf. All were cut from white paper (110 weight) and hand colored using archival inks. The petals were then hand shaped using a flower shaping ball tool and mat from the back side to form the curve of the petals. Lastly turn your petals over and press down with a small ball tool in the center to create a plunging center. To finish the flowers off I used silver stamens and a glue gun to build the flower and added glass glitter to the petals with dries clear glue for a final touch.

Here is one last look at the final project.
