Dies R Us Elegant Floral

I have an easy, yet elegant floral card to share with you here and on the Dies R Us Blog.  The saying goes, April Showers bring May Flowers and today I'm sharing a card created with that saying in mind.

My card is 5x5 square top fold.  I selected designer papers, ribbon, adhesive half-pearl, and one of my DIY stick pins from my stash and then proceeded to create using Cheery Lynn dies as noted below.

I first die cut using Cheery Lynn French Pastry Doily and Judy's Blooms:

I then shaped the flowers and leaves using my favorite stylus tool and glue:

After shaping the blooms I inked the edges of the flower and also inked 
the center of the doily:

Here is a close up of the shaped and inked die cuts:

It's fun to create an elegant card to give to someone special at anytime of the year, just because!

Cheery Lynn dies used from the Dies R Us online store:

Both of these dies are currently out of stock, so be sure to sign up on the waiting list so you will be notified when they are back in the Dies R Us online store.
