I started with a base of Highland Heather cardstock and then added a layer of Basic White cardstock and Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper. I used the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and the Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine to cut a scalloped rectangle out of Basic White cardstock.
Next, I used the Hydrangea Dies to cut the flower out of Highland Heather cardstock using my Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (both of the dies I used WILL fit in our smaller Cut & Emboss Machine). The flowers come out partially cut and I pushed each petal up so it wasn’t laying flat. I stamped the leaves onto the Basic White rectangle using Old Olive ink and stamped the sentiment with Memento Ink using the Hydrangea Haven stamp set. Then I used very small amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue around the outside of the Hydrangea and adhered it to the top of the leaves.
To complete the card, I added pearls in the center of each flower and adhered a piece of Basic White cardstock to the inside. I’ve had these dies since January and I was a little intimidated to use them – I know, silly. They were so easy to use!! The dies do all the work and make it so easy to create a beautiful card!
