Flowers of Love

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit today. It's Mary Marsh here bringing you the Saturday edition of the Blog.

We have some fabulous new Spring dies released over at the online store. Today for your viewing pleasure I am featuring Wildflowers 1, Wildflowers 2 and Wildflowers 3 dies. So let's get started on how I created my card.

Navy Blue Card Base: 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"
Patterned Paper Panel: 5 3/8" x 4 1/8"
Navy Blue Rectangle Panel: 2 3/4" x 3 3/4" (2nd largest of rectangle dies)

My choice of colors for my card today came from the Splitcoaststampers color challenge #622. Those colors are mint, watermelon and navy blue. And then I chose my background navy patterned paper. From there I decided on a card layout and cut the necessary pieces.

The circles are from the CottageCutz circle and stitched circle dies. Both are the 4th largest dies in the sets. The navy blue rectangle is from the 2nd largest rectangle die in this set.
I cut the wildflowers in the watermelon shade of the color challenge. And the dragonfly in the mint shade also from the challenge. When I started the assembling of my card, I decided to use the Wildflowers 3 die and eliminate the 2 die cuts from Wildflowers 1.
I decided to add a mint strip across my card and top that with some navy blue ribbon. I also stamped my sentiment on the white circle in navy ink. I used an embossing folder to add some texture to the mint panel.
I was now ready to start the assembly of my card. On the large panels I used double sided tape. On the wildflowers I used Ranger multi-matte medium. The wildflower dies have great detail as you can see in this close up photo. On the sentiment circle I also added some watermelon circles.
Well that's it for me for this week. I hope I have given you an additional idea on how to use the Wildflower dies. I will be posting again on Wednesday with another idea for using the Wildflowers.  So until then..........
