Looks like you are loving the new Build A Flower dies. I'm sure you will love all the flowers you will be able to create with Set #2 coming out in August -- Sorry, I can't give you any hints! You will be able to use some of the dies from Set #1 along with the new dies in the second release.
This card was created with one of the new Cheery Lynn Window dies. I had a hard decision on which new window die I wanted use because I love them all. What is so fun with these window dies, is that they die cut right into the front of your card. You are probably surprised, but I actually created a 4.25" x 5.5" card today. For the background I used the Sizzix "Bricked" embossing folder. I die cut the window in the center of the front panel of the card, then embossed the front. A piece of designer paper was attached inside the card (behind the window).
I created the flower with the "Build A Flower Set #1" dies. The petals were die cut using white card stock then I used chalk to add yellow to the bottom of each petal. I used a variety of the smaller stamens in this flower set die cutting both yellow and black stamens. The yellow stamens were colored on the tips with brown ink. I did a tutorial on an earlier post on how to shape the leaves from the Build A Flower dies. The small leaves are the new Cheery Lynn "Iris Leaves"
