Enjoy every moment

Hi, Janja here!

Nature is these days breathtaking with beautiful color spectrum of blooming flowers. It is therefore not unusual that I once again reused beautiful CottageCutz stamps and dies - Birthday Flowers.

- CottageCutz stamps and dies: Narcissus Flower - December, Larkspur Flower - July, Garden Gnomes 1 (Hello),  Wildflowers 2 (dragonfly), Fancy Floral Lace Border, Oval Set, Stitched Oval Set, Stitched Rectangle Set, Stitched Circle set
- kraft and white card base: 4.25 x 5.5" (10,8 x 14 cm), folded
- patterned paper: 4 x 5.2" (10,2 x 13,2 cm)
- green cardstock: 4 x 5.2" (10,2 x 13,2 cm)
- patterned paper: 3.74 x 5" (9,5 x 12,7 cm)
- Distress inks: Tattered Rose, Picket Raspberry, Blueprint Sketch, Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint, Spiced Marmalade, Rusty Hinge
- watercolor paper

Stamp flowers on watercolor paper. After coloring, cut out flowers with matching die.

If we do not have appropriate colored cardstock, use Distress inks and color white cardstock.

Cut out paper strip with stitched rectangle die. Fix the die on the edge of cardstock, and cut out one line with stitches. Then move the die, and cut it out again.

From white cardstock cut out two lace border. Shadow them gently with Distress ink - Tattered Rose.

Stamp and emboss sentiment with white powder. Attach lace.

Cut out two ovals from kraft cardstock and patterned paper.

Trim patterned paper and card base.

Add the dragonfly and the card is completed.

With circle die cut out a hole in a patterned paper. Fasten patterned paper to a green cardstock, and put them together on a white card front.

Stamp and color flowers. Cut them out with the matching die. Attach flowers in a circle. Use self-adhesive foam pads. Stamp "Hello" on a strip, and attach it to the background with eyelet. 

Thanks for joining me today!
