Playing with flower dies never gets old... today's card made my mind blown! I didn't think I would make it look like anything special. Well, I think I was truly impressed with the dies....and myself(!!).
Hollyhock Etched Dies from the Through the Garden Gate Collection by Susan Tierney-Cockburn
It was certainly a labor of love if you like to create with floral dies. I decided to keep the color pellet of the petals soft and pink.
I was somewhat skeptical whether I needed to use specialty paper. But no, I used the regular 110lb card stock and they worked just fine.
After die-cutting the pieces, I inked up the petals with Distress Oxide. For the leaves, I have some Distress Oxide Sprayed paper and die cut them and created the "leaves".
You may noticed a few droplets of red in the middle of the petals. I thought that they added some nice details and touches.
I got the design paper from this month's Card Kit and layered two pieces and they work beautifully with the Hollyhocks.
Thanks for stopping by!
