Lots of Die Cuts!

It's my turn to choose the theme over at Stampavie and More, so I picked one of my favourite things - die cuts!

For my card I've gone for all Marianne Design dies and the only stamping is the text that I tried to do with white embossing powder .. .. I really think it is past it's sell by date!

For the card base I've used a piece of patterned paper from Marianne Design Pretty Butterflies pad to cut the plain shaped layer then pearl peachy pink card to cut the trellis layer above it - both from LR0236.  I've embellished with flowers created from LR0111 with the stamens from LR0112 and skeleton leaves from LR0156.  The little butterfly is from LR0158.  I inked the edges of the pink flower layers with Pink Petunia Versamagic chalk ink and finished them off with white pearls created with my Wacco pearl maker pen. The text is cut out with LR0187 and finished off with a pink organza ribbon tied in a bow.

The Die Cuttin' Divas want to see some flowers this week, and the Allsorts challenge is also for flowers, while at Party Time Tuesdays they are playing Tic Tac Toe - I've gone for the bottom row of a shaped card, pearls and die cuts. The Everybody Art theme is for 2 colours so my mix of soft pink and white should fit the bill nicely!


  1. This is such a gorgeous card.
    Love the dies you used.

  2. Gorgeous and what a beautiful showcase of dies. I have the lattice die and it is one of my all time faves. I really like the pink and white on this card too.

  3. Goodness that is striking with all the layers & finishes of the card stocks. The trellis effect is lovely with the skeleton leaves & I particularly like your shade of pink.
