Hi friends! This is Mayline, thank you for joining me today. This is my last post with projects I made using dies from the Flower Garden collection by Sharyn Sowell. I normally make an A2 sized card using stamps, dies, and inks but today’s project I have made a square card without stamp images. Also, I wanted to make this card playful and interesting. So I layered many die cut pieces. It was a bit challenging for me but I really enjoyed.

As I mentioned above, I normally make A2 sized cards, this time I made a 6-3/4” square card. I started by creating a panel 6-3/4” square panel with sky blue cardstock. And then I cut out four of the Floral Gatefold Etched Dies using same sky blue cardstock. After that, I taped them to each end of the panel. So I completed making a lace square cover.

For the inside of the lace cover, I created a square panel that is slightly smaller than 6-3/4” using white cardstock. And then I used the Rose Bird Topiary Etched dies to cut white paper. And I cut the pieces in half. After that, I adhered the half pieces of die cutting on the edge of the white square panel.

Next, I prepared an A2 sized top folded white card panel. I cut out three of the Birds Singing Border Etched dies using white cardstock. And then I adhered the pieces on the A2 sized panel. Next, I cut leaves and a ribbon using the Dimensional Floral Panel Etched dies and then I coloured them. And set aside. I cut another shape of leaves from gold paper and watercolour paper using the Card Creator Floral Panel Card Etched dies. And then I coloured the leaves blue colour using watercolour paints. Next, I stamped a sentiment with white pigment ink on the black cardstock and then I cut it in a banner shape. And then everything put together on the panel. So the cover part of the card is done. Let’s move on inside of the card.

As mentioned in the beginning, I wanted to make this card playful and interesting. So, when you open the card you can see a colourful butterfly. To start off, I use the Dimensional Floral Panel Etched dies to cut a wreath using a gold paper. And then I created colourful panels with watercolour paints to make a butterfly. After that I used Botanical Butterfly Etched dies to cut a butterfly body, insect wings, decorative wings and antennas. I put them together. Next, I adhered the wreath and butterfly on the inside of the A2 sized panel. And I adhered A2 sized panel to the white square panel. To complete this card, I attached the white square panel on the inside of the sky blue square.
