Hello Wildflowers 05500
For my first card, I used the beautiful Miss You set along with the always lovely, Bird & Butterfly Labels. The Miss You wildflowers were stamped with Versafine directly onto a piece of designer paper from the ODBD Christmas 2014 collection.One of the smaller bird labels was stamped with the turquoise pigment ink onto black card stock and embossed with a mixture of baby blue & mint pastel embossing powders. The greeting from Miss You was embossed inside the label and I used a Versamark pen & the same powders to edge it after it was die cut. A narrow ribbon and some beads I strung were added.

My second card features the wonderful Life is a Gift set. The white panel was die cut using the outermost die from the Flourished Star Pattern die set then I die cut a circle in the top. The image was stamped on a separate piece of white, colored and I cut around some of the top to slide them on top of the circle from underneath. The Happy Birthday as well al the backing layer & corner die (from ODBD Ornate Borders & Flowers die set) were die cut out of paper from the ODBD Christian Faith paper collection. I used the balloon on the inside.

    You never disappoint. I love how you fussy cut the top the stamped images in the first two cards. What a wonderful idea. Stamping the word die cuts was also a great idea. Well done. Well done.
