DSC 0082 smallFor today's card, I started by die cutting the different elements from the Floral Doodles Die Set. For this, I used a combination of papers from some of our Gradient Cardstock sets for the base layers (Sea Shore, Cherry Blossom, and Shades of Purple), and Classic Crest Solar White for the outlines.

I adhered them together with our 2 in One Precision Glue Pen, intentionally offsetting the outline for a more whimsical look. These were then attached to a black card base with a combination of glue tape and foam tape. I felt like it needed a little something extra, so I die cut the Linear Crossroads Die from the darkest paper in the Sea Shore Gradient Cardstock Set (Emerald), and cut it up a bit. Then, I applied some liquid glue and tucked it behind the floral arrangement.

I left off a sentiment so I can add one when it is time to send the card to someone. At this point, I don't know who will be receiving it, and for what occasion. I intend to add a sentiment strip to the lower-right hand side of the card to balance all of the elements.

I was also excited to play with the new Woven Heart Die Set. I grabbed some of the scraps of cardstock I had leftover from the card, die cut them, and then did a bit of paper weaving. I love the result, and I can't wait to add this to my next project!
