When I saw the challenge over at Sisterhood of Crafters Blog using stitched dies, I decided to use my stitched blooms for my friends card. She also leads our Ladies Bible study and so I wanted to make an extra special card. I tried my hand at making buds using the smallest die in the set.
I started out by spraying the background with Color wash spray. Then cut a frame using two dies. Cut the lattice and layered that behind the frame. She likes red so I went with that for the flowers. For the leaves on the buds I used a flower punch, and added the sprigs, little gems for the flower centers.
I do enjoy when I am hand delivering a card and I don't have to worry about how thick and how much dimension I have on it.
