EASTER BLOSSOMS STAMP SET...

Wherever you live in this big wide world, you're probably ready for better weather and SPRING!  We've had a steady flow of rain here in the Pacific Northwest, so I made a card with colors of spring, hoping to hurry the season along!

Easter Blossoms-1 
This spring flower is kissed with a hint of sunshine...

Easter Blossoms grouped 

HERE'S HOW TO MAKE THE FLOWER:  1) Cut the flower from Whisper White Card Stock using the Fun Flowers Bigz L Die2) Sponge the edges with ink from the Daffodil Delight Stampin' Pad3) Run petals through the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder4) Curl the petal edges with your fingers or a rounded object like a pencil.  5) Pierce the center and position with a brad.

HERE'S A TIP:  The Sending Springtime Smiles greeting fits in the 1-3/4" Oval Punch shape.  To make a larger outline, glue stamped/punched greeting onto a coordinating color of card stock, and slowly cut (freehand) around the edge.  Now here's the real tip... To smooth the edges to perfection, gently sand around the outside of the cut oval with a Sanding Block.

Linda I LOVE this card. So Fresh! I just got my Fun Flowers die but haven't used it yet. Now I can't wait.
Love your sentiment, but I am soooooo bad and free cutting a circle or any curved edge that it's unbelievable... I could never get mine so even. Beautiful job though. Hugs.

What a gorgeous card! You just sold me on the Fun Flowers die! :)
