Breathe Deep....

Howdy Peeps....
Lynne Forsythe here with another 
card I created with a Die~Namites Die...

Spring has SPRUNG....
and what a sight for the eyes.
The flowers are blooming....
the leaves are pooping on the trees...
There is LIFE!

All the color inspired me to create a Bright and Cheery Card!

I began with the Flower Swirl Die...
(which, by the way, will be shipping June 3rd)

I cut the die from a piece of Handmade Paper by Canvas Corp
that has the feel of watercolor paper.
You may find you need to "shim" the
dies when cutting through denser, more fibrous papers.
I just use the card stock that comes as the backing
for embellishments.

I then pulled out a piece of Tissue Stock
I cut (6) 1.5" x 3" pieces of the Tissue stock
and cut out the larger flowers. 

I then, cut the flowers apart.

Placed a brad through the center of the flower
and crumpled the Tissue Stock
creating a 3-D flower.

I then colored the Die~Namites Die ~ Flower Swirl
with Fern ~ Silk Acrylic Glaze
and the buds with the Chiffon Pink ~ Twinkling H20
with an accent of Evening Primrose ~ Silk Acrylic Glaze.

I colored the flower with Chiffon Pink ~ Twinkling H20's
and Honey Amber ~ Silk Acrylic Glaze.

With the end product being this
LOVE~LY Spring Card!!

Hope you enjoyed my creating utilizing the
Die~Namites Flower Spiral Die!!

Don't forget.....we are having a DT Call!!
