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.

  1. Die cut the Fragrant Flower Die with 100lb Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock
  2. Use the die cut paper as a stencil and place it over another piece of cardstock
  3. Secure the paper with Satin Masking Tape (Ultra Sticky Mat will work also)
  4. Ink-blend the various ink with Mini Ink Blending Brushes and Detailed Blending Brushes
  5. Once finished ink-blending, remove the die cut paper
