Going 3D with CottageCutz

These Spring CottageCutz dies are wonderful for so many occasions. A friend of mine lost her dear father last week and I wanted to make her a special card showing my sympathy.
The Daisy and Butterflies dies were perfect to create this sympathy card.
As I used this Daisy I was so impressed with how well it was created. It is the closest thing to buying your flowers already made. They can be layered as I've done here or used single with several possibilities for the center. I chose to use the middle sized center and apply a little Glossy Accents. This is one of my top die recommendations because of the versatility and look of these awesome flowers. I made some of these flowers for a layout as well and punched a hole in the center and used velvet brads for the middle.
I also used the stem from the Mini Daisy for greenery, I just simply turned the stem the opposite way.
There is so little effort to make them pop and give this 3D look.
I had to go back and buy the Butterflies Die after seeing Ruth Ellen use them on her layouts.
I cut the butterfly that I wanted with my patterned papers facing up to make the butterfly facing the direction I wanted and applied some Stickles to make it sparkly.
(I used the Basic Grey Green at Heart 6x6 papers)
So whether you're making a spring card or layout, birthday, thank you or sympathy card these dies are perfect for so many occasions.
