Sometimes it is nice to make a clean and simple card without all the fancy embellishments. That is what I have created today using Cheery Lynn Designs dies. I love long/tall cards. This one is 4 x 9.25 inches and fits in a business envelope. Using just the center drop out from my Mexican Tile Pattern die, I die cut three white squares which I mounted onto pink, then black card stock. This is what the complete die looks like.....
The outer blue frame cuts as one piece and the inner white square is another. I simply cut my card stock 2.75 inches square, centered it on the die and cut it out. For the center flower, I used my Stacker Flower 4, cutting it three times and then gluing them together so the petals are staggered. I added a bit of curl to the ends of the petals for some dimension.
