Flower Cluster



A surprise fell onto my door mat last week with a die for the lastest Simon Says Stamp release Sending Sunshine. My die is called Flower Cluster which is a corner die and I have used it twice here. A small tip if you want to use twice like I have done,  decide on you sentiment and if its stamped do it before cutting the two flowers clusters or at least make sure you have enough room. I'm speaking from experience.

Once I cut the two dies I place tape behind so the sticky side was facing and I place the outline in place. I used a few of the white pieces so it looks like the background is coming through. Then I used green and dark pink card to make my leaves and flowers and yellow for the centres. For some reason I decided that one of the petal of was part of the bud and cut it in a red only to release it wasn't at all but just for today I think I can get away with it.

Since the sentiment I hoped to use didn't fit I decided to use the Message for Everyday the set is made up with these smaller sentiments for every occasion and more. Finally I used the Stitching Butterflies but I also used the body of the Adeline Butterfly.


I'm still trying to work out a better way of photographing my cards and I noticed that several blogs photo above the card and at an angle with some white wooden background. So I thought I would give it a try, need to work out the light, the picture had to be lighten quite a bit but I'm liking the wooden effect paper.

Beautiful card. I'm sure it was a lot of work putting those colored pieces in the white die cut but it was well worth it. TFS
