February 2022 Flowers & Swirls Stand alone Dies

Flowers & Swirls Full Release Bundle

Branched & Dainty Romantic Card

I used a bunch of scraps to make this card. As a result this wedding card worked up really quickly. I had fussy cuts of the washi tape floral motifs and the watercolor background background. I simply filled my card with the Dainty Leaves images and a Mega Ampersand die cut.

How To Make This Card

  1. Make an A2 panel of the Peach Gold Washi Tape background.
  2. Fussy cut a few flower and leaf motifs from the Glitter Flurries Wide Washi Tape.
  3. Arrange the floral images around the Mega Ampersand Die and gold die cuts of the Dainty Leaves.
  4. Add a coordinating sentiment from Sentiment Strips Stamp Set.

Peach Gold Washi Tape

Glitter Flurries Wide Washi Tape

Mega Ampersand Die

Wild & Free Feathered Card

I could not pass up this large illustration. I had to use the entire image and wanted it to command attention on the front of my card. I kept this palette white and gold for some sophisticated and romantic vibes.

How To Make This Card

  1. The background base is a full shaker card front. The background image comes from the Splatter Hot Foil Plate. The sequins come from the Make A Statement Sequin Bundle.
  2. Die cut the outline images from the Wispy Feathered Die Set in a gold cardstock. Stack die cuts for dimension.
  3. Use an acetate friendly adhesive to glue the stacked die cut feathered images to the full shaker card front. I used Glossy Accents.
  4. Fussy cut a gold heat embossed sentiment from Wild & Free Stamp Set.

Blushing Anemone Layering Die Card

Lately, I have been loving partially gluing down layered floral dies. I find that it photographs better and adds realistic shadows to the flower. White Anemones with dark centers are always eye-catching; I let the flowers speak for themselves on my floral card.

How To Make This Card

  1. Use Jet Black Ink Spray to add splatters on an A2 panel of Spicy Yogurt Cardstock. Glue to your folded note card base.
  2. Die cut the petal images from Grand Anemone Die Set from white cardstock. Make a blush center gradient on the centers of the die cuts.
  3. Die cut the flower center images from black cardstock. Add gold watercolor details to the perimeter of the die cut layers.
  4. Adhere the flower layers only on the center with a strong adhesive. I used Glossy Accents. Gently curl the flower die cut layers for dimension.
  5. Die cut and layer the leaf images. I used scrap panels of green cardstock, varying the layer order for dimension.
  6. White heat emboss a Hello sentiment on gold cardstock for an eye-catching sentiment strip.

  1. These are all very eye-catching cards! That wedding card will be treasured I’m sure! Stunning!

    The feather cards made me look twice! At first I thought it was a large leaf die! It could be in the autumn if dine in orange, yellows and reds!

    I love the beauty of your flowers on the second card. It could be used for any occasion! Wedding, birthday, sympathy…anything! I think they are very dramatic!


  2. Beautiful projects created for the hop. I like the combination of washi tapes and the combination for the flower layers.
