Dies R Us Blog

On the Dies R Us Inspirational Blog today I have made a card using a crocus, one of the first flowers we see in Spring.  I have a card that I made after spending some time in Florida. There, the spring is in full bloom and back here in Wisconsin, we need some more sunshine. Soon all of the flowers will be blooming, but for now, we can make cards to reflect the Spring season.
I made this card using only dies and stamping only the sentiment.  It really went together easily and once I had the arrangement that I liked, I just glued it in place.  I used two different colors of glitter paper for the flowers.  Added some rhinestones and some gingham paper along with a Spellbinders border die. 
                                     Here is the die that I used.

Here is another view of the card, you can see all of the texture that you can get with dies.
These are really fun to work with and you can mix and match the  dies of other flowers.  It would be fun to see what you will come up with.  Look what I did with just one die.
Thanks for stopping by to take a closer look.  I do love your comments.
