Set of Two Floral Die Cut Cards

Hello crafty friends,
Melinda here with you and today I am sharing a set of quick and easy cards to help you build your stash. Take a peek!

My two cards are both A2 cards with a pretty floral theme. The center piece for this set is the Flower 5 die from the recent Cottage Cutz Flowers and more release.

Here's a closer look at the first card with a single flower in the center.

After cutting out my card base, I cut out a couple of mats. I ran them through some embossing folders I had in my stash. 

For the larger one, I spritzed some Shimmerz Vibez spray to give it some fun color and bring out the wood grain texture.

I cut out my flower 5 die in white cardstock and then used my markers to color in the leaves and the flower heads. I used some of my Nuvo Dew Drops for the center of the flowers and also as a decorative touch on the top right corner. I used some White Shimmerz Vibez spray on the kraft embossed mat. It gives it a subtle added touch without being too overpowering. I then mounted all of that onto a scallop stitched rectangle die mat and then wrapped that with some twine. I did use some foam tape on the back to give it just a little lift.

Here's a closer look at the second card. I used the same elements as the other card. I traded the colors of the mats and also used one size bigger scallop stitched mat. I used two of the Flower 5 dies on this one.

Here's a look at the same word embossed mat. I inked this with some of my navy ink.

For the larger mat on this card, I used kraft cardstock and then sponged some of my white ink onto the mat to bring out the texture.

Here is one last look at both cards. A great tip to build your stash is to make sets of cards just like this. You don't have to put a sentiment on them until you know what the occasion is for. These are perfect for everything from Hello, thinking of you, to condolences, and anything in between!
