First off, you need to look for dies that have a lot of surface area that you are cutting out, without a lot of holes in them. I'm sure you probably already have some dies in your stash that would work.
I absolutely love how this card turned out. There is enough surface area in the leaves to see the progression of the paint lines from one leaf to the next. The masterboard that I made for this wasn't really my favorite.
The With Sympathy stamp is by Gretchen Ehrsam and was made by RubberMoon. Gretchen Ehrsam's designs are no longer available at RubberMoon, unfortunately. You could go through your stash for a similar stamp, or you could also get this favorite from Magenta. This is a direct link to this item at the Magenta online store. Magenta kindly made this stamp at our request when we were at Art 'n Soul, and it is still available for sale.

This card design is based on the Mini Masterpieces that we did in a class by Sally Penley. You can look at my Mini Masterpieces here, here, here, and here. Sally is still teaching the Mini Masterpiece class, so if you are local, I highly recommend it. You will get so much from this class. You can access her website here to sign up for her classes or buy her beautiful artwork.
