Spring Flowers


This is another card made with Melanie's "A Year of Flowers" stamp set.  I have this set on my desk and now I can't stop making cards with it.    These flowers are black embossed on purple vellum and cut out. I love the look of the flowers stamped on vellum because it makes them look dainty just like a real flower.  My background is a piece of DCWV Latte dp.  I cut out a Spellbinder Fleur De Lis frame.  The corner pieces are attached to a piece of black cs that was embossed with the Cuttlebug Dotted Swiss embossing folder.  The green frame is mounted on a piece of perfect plum cs that was embossed with the Cuttlebug Swirls embossing folder.  The flowers were arrange on the frame with the middle one stacked with 3 layers of the flower.  Leaves were glued under the flowers.  The verse is from Gina K's Picture It stamp set.  Gosh, working with these flowers is making me anxious for Spring to arrive!

This is beautiful Selma. I have that pendant die but for some reason I don't use my spellbinder's as much as I should. Love the inspiration! Purple is my favorite color so you know I love this one.

Beautiful Selma! Wow, I love this one too. I really like how you "layered" the Spellbinder dies. Great idea. Also it is just amazing what the embossing does for a card. I love everything about this card too!!!
