Cut purple card stock to size, fold in half and using the flourish background stamp, stamp over the front of the card using some soft lilac ink, set this aside.

Next using your Cuttlebug Machine, run white card stock through the machine using Spellbinders Label 8 die. Stamp over the die cut using the friend definition stamp with some soft sand ink.

Take Copic card stock stamp the daisy from the My Garden stamp set and colour in using Copics, cut each flower out, making sure to cut one smaller then the other and adhere together using some foam dimensionals.

Sharing Ideas....
Have you ever tried flocking? It's a fun technique that produces a lovely velvety finish on your cards or layouts. I hope you find some time to give it a try.
Below is a wonderful tutorial from the very talented Nichol Magourik
(Video only viewable from our blog or You Tube.)
