Spring Easter Card Swap

Here is my card swap from last Friday night's team meeting at Selene's. The swap theme was Spring so I definitely think the color combination of Daffodil Delight, Pretty in Pink and Marina Mist fits that nicely. I received a box of goodies from Stampin' Up! last week so I was determined to use my new Fun Flowers Big Shot die from the Occasions Mini catalog.

I used a technique called Inlaid embossing on this card. You can say this card is probably Big Shot over the top! I used the Top Note Die to cut the Daffodil and white layers then I cut out the edge on the white layer and matted to the Daffodil. Then I cut the flowers from the Fun Flowers die in Daffodil & Pretty in Pink. Then I glued the flowers to the white layer and ran all four layers through the Big Shot in my Square Lattice embossing folder. It adds a nice quilted look on my card. I was able to bend up the edges on the pink flower for some dimension then I added the Daffodil button.

Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Marina Mist
Paper: Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White
Other: Big Shot, Top Note Die, Fun Flowers Die, Square lattice embossing folder, Brights button in Daffodil, linen thread, Scallop oval punch, Oval punch
