I've started making cards again, last night I made 3 cards. For the first two I used Ellen's Big Shot and Daisie die. The Daisie die is seen in the picture below.
The picture below shows the various cs and DS paper after the die has been run through the Big Shot.
Here are the two cards I made using the Daisie die. I used buttons for the flower center and the eyelet border punch to give both cards a feminine touch. I also used my butterfly punch and made a three dimensional butterfly for each card. I usually include a sentiment on the front of my cards but I decided not to because I like the simplicity of it. I think the butterfly and flower is enough, otherwise it may look too cramped.
The third card I made used the Manhattan Flower die mentioned in my May 5, 2009 post. I cut out the flowers and adhered it to Apricot cs. I stamped the Best Wishes sentiment in Regal Rose on white cs and used the scallop oval punch. I tied white ribbon (I got at Michael's) around the card and voila, another card.
I'll be making cards every day this week through Friday so I'll be posting my projects daily. Tomorrow I'll post patriotic cards.
