Window Die by Cheery Lynn


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"

Very pretty card!! I hope the next set of flowers is smaller, I like them about 2" across. I like them as accents not the main focus.
