I made this card to play along with September Waffle Flower Challenge. The colors from the challenge photo were so soft and inspiring!
decided to use the Sizzix dies I bought a while ago. This was my first time to use dies. I had been so hesitated to use them, so afraid to leave marks
on the plates of my beloved Sizzix. But the inspiration photo was calling me
to make this card! I am happy to say- no regrets!!
first die cut the flowers using colors from the inspiration photo. Then
I arranged the flowers on a piece of a gray card that I used as the
background. After I was happy with their positions, I then die cut the
flowers from the gray card and inlaid all the color flowers back to the
background gray card. To finish the card, I used the
awesome sentiment from Waffle Flower's "In Every Way Stamp Set". I used silver embossing powder to heat emboss the sentiment and then fuzzy cut it. (I am so much in need of that "Awesome" die!!) The sentiment was so perfect to describe the moment when I first used dies... AWESOME!! Thank you so much for the inspiration!!
I am playing along with the following challenges:
