This month,  it is the beautiful Build-a Flower Aster.

 I have a ton of fun creating with this flower as you can imagine. 😉
I love the pointy details of the Aster and decided to do partial die-cutting.

Once the flower had gone through the die cut machine half way, I trimmed off the upper portion from the white card stock with my big Fiskar scissors. For the text background, I stamped all the sentiment from the set and adhered the vellum over.

I only used the outline stamp (the flower comes with 3 images!).  I love the intensity of blue from the Shimmer Spray.

I also added 3 pieces of Aster die cut underneath the blue one and offset it a bit.
I will definitely share more versions with this lovely stamp set and die.

Hi Virginia, Lovely card! This set is stunning and the sentiments are also just what I have been looking for, so I ordered it this morning! Looking forward to seeing what else you do with it. To partial die cut, did you do that only on the bottom white cardstock, and then layer the fully die cut images on top? I haven't tried that technique yet. Love the shimmer spray, too!
