Layered Floral Card
My name is Corina Finley. Welcome to my first day on this exciting new journey as Guest Designer for March 2014. I hope your week has gone well so far. Mine here in beautiful British Columbia, Canada has been quite busy, cold but great. Chasing after my two boys (7 & 3 years old), keeping DH on track and paper crafting fills my days.
I’m bursting with excitement to share my card creations with you all, using the wonderful Cheery Lynn Dies. I will be sharing with you a card I created using a few of my cherished Floral strip dies and a couple Doily dies to play along with this week's challenge here on Cheery Lynn's blog.
The magic about creating with the Cheery Lynn Floral Dies is that you do not have to have paper in the perfect colour! I cut my flowers out in white cardstock and then colour/ink to match.
I love creating cards like this, where I can use a variety of Cheery Lynn Dies and create a layered look, giving the card detail and depth. It is easy (the dies do the hard part!)and I love my creations when I am done!
On this Card, I used Cheery Lynn Dies:
Italian Flourish Doily - DL103
Sophia's Heart - DL184
Flourish Leaf Strip - B178
Rose Leaf Strip - B241
Shasta Daisy - B310
Medium Rose - B154

Daisy Strip - B259
Coved Rectangle - XM-10
Horizon Coved Rectangle Boutique Stacker Frames - DL251
Love (Set of 2) - B227
Sentiment Frame #1 - B189
*On the Flowers I used: Distress Inks to colour my flowers, I did a bit of spray misting with some homemade shimmer spray, and then added a few pearls, a stick pin and seam binding to create this floral arrangement!

Live, Laugh & Create!
