Spring Flowers

Today I am sharing a card that I have been wanting to make ever since I bought the Spring Shower cover die from Altenew last year. I don't know why but somehow cover dies just stump me. I love the look of them but then struggle to know what to do with it. Anyway the time came to have a go and after looking around (Pinterest mainly) for inspiration I made this:

I started by embossing the die on a panel and then I coloured it with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. Then I stacked 3 die cuts on top. It was rather fiddly because of the extra bits in the centre of the flowers. I started by trying to stack them too but gave up with the tiny bits and just stuck one in the middle of the flowers. Here is a close up so you can see what I mean:

The sentiment is from Uniko and was stamped and heat embossed on a vellum strip which is secured behind the panel. I wanted it to create a contrast against the white and pastel shades. Apologies that my close up is a bit out of focus in places.

Although it was a fiddle to make I am quite pleased with the finished card. Here is a picture from another angle that shows the dimension:

I am sharing this at the following challenges:

I think fiddling around with stacking those dies paid off ten fold. It creates a beautiful card. So glad you joined us at Die Cut Divas.
