2 cards and a flower tutorial - Kianel

Hello dear Cheery Lynn friends,
Today i am showing you a card i made which is quite quick and simple.

The base of the card is a cardstock that i worked with the snowflake edger border.

I then made a masking template using the snowflakes die set to decorate my cardstock with ink.
I used the polynesian sail oval and the angel wing and placed the sentiments Happy and birthday in the center.

I then built a flower with Build a flower #2 and added some leaves from the dimensional leaves set #2 small and set #2 large.
Added a few decorations and voilà!
************************************
And i also wanted to show you a card i made for a cardmaker's monthly kit i am DTing for here in France. Of course i used some Cheery Lynn Designs dies there but i also made a tutorial on how to make the lace flower as i received quite many questions about that one so here it is and hope this helps:

 Base of the card is XL square stackers and large silver square stackers. I also used the cardmakers' stackers and the english tea party doily and coordinated angel wing.

 Inside i placed a XL scalloped circle stackers and a large silver circle stackers. In the top corner you can see a die from the deco lace corner #D set. Holly leaves is placed around the flowers. 
Lovely tiny butterflies are placed here and there and the flower is made with lace deco corner #D set.

LACE FLOWER TUTORIAL:

Step 1: cut 5 pieces of lace deco corner #D die in white paper.
 Step 2: colour with distress inks.
 Step 3: cut the middle part of one diecut like the picture shows.
 Step 4: roll around a round stick to shape the flower.
 Step 5: glue and here is what you get. Shape the petals gently to the outside using a round brush stick. Do exactly the same steps with a 2nd diecut and glue around the one you just did, shaping petals towards the outside.
 Step 6: glue what you achieved on one diecut that you shape towards the outside but don't cut. Then add another layer and shape gently towards the outside but less than before and do end with the last diecut that you use as is. And voilà! Pretty cool isn't it?
