Happy Birthday Wildflower Stems

I needed to make a couple of birthday cards and I pulled out a Sizzix by Tim Holtz die set that I have been meaning to use: Wildflower Stems #1. 

 I used one of the 5 dies from this set and cut it out of a panel of white cardstock. I had already cut the panel with the Greetery Crimped Frame die. I mounted it onto a panel on which I had blended Distress Inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Carved Pumpkin, and Saltwater Taffy.

I stamped the front panel with one of my favorite birthday sentiments from Poppy Stamps, and I flicked gold watercolor paint onto the panel at the end.

I took the flower that I had cut out of the first panel and used it on another card for a friend who likes classic black and white. I send her a black and white card every year. I adhered the flower onto a piece of textured black cardstock and embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder.

These cards were just a really simple use of this die, but I loved how they turned out. I plan to do more with this die set in the future.

  1. Lovely! I have dies like that but never seem to get around to using them this way. It's great when you can get two cards with one pass of the die cutter. So, do you have a stack of card stock already cut with that crimping die? LOL

    1. LOL I might have a few already cut. Thanks Laura; it was great seeing you today.
