Add Dimensions and Interest With a Die

 Hello friends!

I am sharing a card that is full of organic elements. If you look at each individual piece, they seem like a hot mess. However, with the right die, you can pull all elements together.

Thanks to the Circular Elements Die, my extra pieces of flowers and leaves didn't need to go to waste.

The flower and leaves are leftovers from this previous project with Build-a-Flower Coneflower.


I started out with a piece of DIY paper with Spray Mist (mixture of yellow and gold). I then measured to the size 4"x 51/2".

With the die in the position, I die cut the paper and punched out the circles and bits...ta-da!

sweet -001

 I then inserted the flowers and leaves into the circle and popped them up a bit.sweet -003

With the added enamel dots and sentiment, this card was easy to create! If you have shape die (circles, oval and square...), you can try this out, too! This is a fun way to use your extra pieces.

I like these smaller dies for background and added texture.

This is one of my favorite Build-a-Flowers and I was just looking at my new Circular Elements die this morning. Now I know how well they go together. Thanks for inspiring me.
