Fragrant Flowers Die Set
Fragrant Flowers Die Set is a unique, multi-purpose die set that comes with a detailed floral bunch that can be used to create lovely backgrounds. It also includes two sentiment strip dies that can cut both an inner and outer border.
The Fragrant Flowers Die Set is a delicate die and can be used in many wonderful ways. Do you know that you can create TWO cards in one go? Let dive right in, shall we?
Here is an overview of my work surface as it shows I set up for these two projects. The bright and beautiful Summer Dreams Fresh Dye Ink are perfect for these projects.
- Die cut the Fragrant Flower Die with 100lb Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock
- Use the die cut paper as a stencil and place it over another piece of cardstock
- Secure the paper with Satin Masking Tape (Ultra Sticky Mat will work also)
- Ink-blend the various ink with Mini Ink Blending Brushes and Detailed Blending Brushes
- Once finished ink-blending, remove the die cut paper
The delicate die was glued and secured with 2 in 1 Precision Glue Pen.
To highlight the pink flowers and add interest, I added the Summer Afternoon Enamel Dots.
The sentiment is from Sketched Florals Stamp and Die Bundle. Another piece of solid die was added for extra pops of color and dimensions.
With the second piece of the stenciled background, I added a piece of black frame to show off the vibrant colors. You can simply trim it to size and add the black cardstock as well. A few Satin White Sequins were all what's needed for the embellishment.
Lastly, I have a bonus project to share! This Clean and Simple design clearly showcase the Fragrant Flowers Die Set.
The Altenew Metallic Threads are one of my favorite embellishments. Here, I added a little extra on the side and tied up a little bow. Small details do matter!
I hope that you got inspired by today's post. If you'd like to share crafting ideas or see more with Fragrant Flowers Die Set, please leave me a comment below. I'd be sure to share it in my next post.

The Fragrant Flowers Die Set adds an interesting texture to your card. Just look at how Tenia used it to further enhance her card's focal point.
Go for monochrome with the Fragrant Flowers Die Set! Emily used the set as her background, but the lovely blue hues she used really elevated the look of this card.
