This first card I call "Simple Pleasure."
I started with a white card base, then I matted a piece of white (which I embossed using QuicKutz bloom embossing folder) with purple card. I also lightly inked the embossed piece with purple Colorbox ink. I cut the “Lucky Scallop” Whispers doily (DVW-4x4-117) and stamped my saying onto the middle. I adhered the doily atop the embossed piece and then added purple roses and buds (Wild Orchid Crafts) and punched leaves (I believe the punch is by McGill, but I’m not 100% positive as there is no name on it). I shaped my leaves with a stylus, and I brushed a thin coat of Star Dust Stickles onto the flowers. This scalloped die makes a beautiful background with the intricate scallops and small holes.
The second card using "Chrysanthemum" Whispers DVW-4x4-121 is called How Silently.
Even though the die is named "Chrysanthemum, I thought it looked a lot like a snowflake. As I said, I was creating these cards in the fall, so I was already thinking winter instead of spring (smile). I cut the die from white paper and layered it onto a piece of white that I embossed using Provo Craft's snowflake embossing folder. The embossed piece is matted with a silver gray, and my card base is white. I stamped my sentiment and heat embossed it with silver which I also matted with the gray card. I added pearls around the die cut and in the center. This is a beautiful die and would make a lovely background for your spring/summer images, too.
My next card is called "Live Happy; Go Shopping."
