Dies R Us Challenge #80- Die Cut Handmade Flowers

Hello sweet friends! 
Welcome to a brand new challenge at Dies R US! Our challenge today is " Die cut handmade flowers".  So anything you want to create, any theme, any style... just use some handmade die cut flowers on your project. 

So here is the card that I created for today's challenge.

My card is an A2 and I used GP cardstock and the papers are from Lemoncraft's "House of Roses" collection. My first panel was cut with the largest rectangle from the Lawn Fawn- Stitched Rectangle Frame Dies. On top of that, I die cut out that beautiful soft green music note paper from the "scalloped stitched rectangular dies" from My Creative Time. And from there it was all layers!

I cut out the pretty floral paper with a tag die, also from MCT and I wanted it adhered on a slant. To this tag, I adhered the Lawn Fawn- Thinking About You Border Die that I cut out of some cucumber crush cardstock (Stampin' Up) and added star dust stickles to it. I really like how it looks on the slant to be aligned with the tag. It's different but nice. Since we had to use die cut handmade flowers on our projects, I decided I wanted to match the paper collection and have roses on this card. So I cut out the two roses out of watermelon wonder (Stampin' Up) cardstock and used the Memory Box- Plush Classic Rose Die. I am not the best at rolling roses but I think they came out okay. I added some cotton candy stickles to the inside centers and randomly around the petals. 

 Now that the roses were cut and ready, I set them aside and cut out those beautiful scrolls from Spellbinders. I thought they would make such a beautiful accent and I wanted to bring in a little more white to compliment that first stitched rectangle frame layer. I added star dust stickles to them as well and I just love the shine! I adhered the scrolls where I wanted them and then I adhered the roses and leaves in place. The leaves were already cut from a previous project so I just used them, it worked out! And after looking at everything together, I still had a large open space on that tag so I cut out a small tag from MCT and stamped the sentiment "Sweet friend" from the MCT "Teeny tag greetings" stamp set. Added in some green/white twine, tied a bow and adhered it with foam tape. It gives a little dimension and is exactly perfect to fill in that space. Really love how this turned out and I even finished the inside with the "Just a note" sentiment from the "Just a note" stamp set from MCT....

  And that completes my card! All of the dies that I used that you can purchase in the Dies R Us store are highlighted in the links above and can be found HERE
