The 2nd card features TWO small dies. I arranged the dies and flowers to a very pleasing manners.

I think the "swirls" design look almost like a V.

My 3rd card featured exactly the same products. This time, I die cut all the pieces from the sentiment and created this masculine card.

Isn't it cool? I hope this inspires you to look at your dies with fresh eyes.

As you can see the shine and glitter from Diecut Glitter Cardstock really adds interest and shine.
