This second die looks more like a cherry blossom branch, and not only is it a lovely die, it shows the colors of the panel behind it very nicely.
I made 5 more cards - 4 Birthday cards and 1 Thank You card thrown in.
These are the panels I used for this set of cards. Some of them look familiar because they are like other background panels that I used in Part 1 of this 2-part series. Please go here for Part 1 of you did not see it. I give links to posts using the techniques for the different panels. All of the background panels above except one were made using stencil stamping. The top center panel was made using Nuance powdered color.
The background panels were cut to 4" x 5.25", and the white die-cut panels were cut to 3.75" x 5", with a stitched edge, using Lawn Fawn LF768 Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables.
Here are all of the die-cut panels on top of the backgrounds. I really think that almost any background would look great with these dies. The Thank You card happened because this is the perfect size stamp to stamp beside the die-cut image. I love how this stamp fits horizontally next to an image that takes up 2/3 of the rest of the panel.
Here are 4 of the finished cards. One had already been sent away before I photographed all of them together. I will be using these dies a lot in the future! I can quickly make a whole set of cards for a gift.
