More Than Flowers!

Happy Friday Cottage Cutz fans!  It's Jeanne today.  I hope you had a Fourth of July and that you have a long weekend to relax.  I have a clean and simple card for you today using the Flower Pot House from the Magical Garden release.
I die cut everything twice in white card stock and used Distress Oxide ink to color them.

To get the shading on the pots I used a Post-it note and placed it in the slit that creates the pot rim.  This creates a mask and allowed me to easily shade just part of the pot.
I assembled my flowers.
For the card front, I took an A2 panel and stenciled dots on it.  I knew I was going to use striped washi tape and felt the dots were a nice complement.
After stamping the sentiment I arranged the pots and flowers on the card and took a photo with my phone.  Since I usually need to remove most of what I've arranged in order to start gluing everything, and this makes a wonderful reference.
In the final you can see that I did rearrange things a little.  One tip to add depth to your die cuts - make sure to layer some over and under other pieces!


Thanks for stopping by today.   Make sure to stop by the online store where there is a BIG July 4th sale going on right now!!!
