One of my most favorite Dies to use is Fun Flowers -why?  Because that die makes it easy to make a beautiful card quickly and it is literally fun to use…

The Fun Flowers Bigz Die was featured on pg 39 of the Occasions Mini Catalog – but guess what?  Although that Mini Catalog has retired, you can still order that die!  It has carried over into the new big Catalog debuting on July 1st.

And so today I decided to make a quick and easy colorful card using it – and this card demonstrates how those die cut flowers make it easy to create a beautiful card front all by themselves…

What a fabulous feature those flowers are!

My cardfront is sized 3″ x 6″ and I used So Saffron Textured cardstock for my base – and I love how that texture really shines through with that red flower.

I added a strip of Early Espresso that edged it using my Scallop Edge Border Punch and wrapped a piece of White Bakers Twine around it…you can find Bakers Twine on pg 10 of the Summer Mini Catalog and the best bit is you get 25 yards of it for JUST $2.95! That has to be the best value embellishment ever!

I wanted to add a little line of dots just above and so I did that using my Paper Piercing Tool and a Ruler – I simply pierced a hole every 1/8″.

I used my Big Shot and Fun Flowers Die to cut out all three flowers from Cherry Cobbler cardstock and I layered them on top of one another using Dimensionals – when you do this, you get a nice ‘popped out’ look.

And I also slightly curled my petals upwards simply by grasping each between my thumb and forefinger and pulling outwards…try it on any die cut or punched flower petals – it is magical and really adds a nice touch to them…

For my finishing touch I added an Old Olive button from Brights Designer Buttons and added a sentiment from the set Bold Blossom that you can find on pg 7 of the Summer Mini Catalog – and that is another fabulously priced and versatile stamp set – I can’t tell you how many times I use it and love it!
