Hi, Lois here today.  While waiting for the newest release from CottageCutz to arrive, I pulled out one of the stamp/die Birthday Flowers sets, which are currently on sale on the website.  The one I used for my relatively-simple card today is the Narcissus, which is December's flower.  I found some old patterned paper which I thought would work well with this flower.

To start my card, I cut the cardstock for the base:

White - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2"
Orange - 4" x 5 1/4"
Patterned paper - 3 7/8" x 5 1/8"

I constructed my card base.

I then cut my two ovals from white and orange, using the 2nd largest Double-Stitched Oval die for the white and the largest Nested Stitched Eyelet Oval for the orange.

I stamped a small sentiment at the bottom of the white oval and glued it to the orange oval before attaching it to the card base.

Next I stamped my images onto a piece of white cardstock . . .

. . . die cut them and colored them with Copic markers.

I attached the die-cuts to my card using small foam pop dots, and I was finished.

CottageCutz sets used on this card are:

I invite you to check out the CottageCutz store, which has lots of discounts on their dies -- up to 70% off on some of them.
