Bright Birthday Blossoms

I whipped up a batch of birthday cards recently using the Many Layered Blossoms dies.  They do come with a coordinating stamp set (save 10% when you buy them both together in the Blossoms in Bloom bundle) but as you will see, I didn't need the stamps for this card, the dies did all the work for me.  These cards are really easy to make and super effective as a set.

Fiona's pro tips:

* Pick bright colours for these cards, they allow the die cuts to stand out better. I used Bermuda Bay, Real Red, Rich Razzleberry, Magenta Madness, and Pumpkin Pie.

* Texture the background with an embossing folder of your choice. You could also consider Tasteful Textile, Brick and Mortar, or Bark 3D.

* Use a metal shim when cutting out the Blossom dies.  They are intricate dies and need that extra tiny bit of pressure to cut them out fully.  You may also need to run it through your die cutting machine 2 or 3 times (do them in one go - don't go back or you risk misplacing the die and cutting into your die cut).  If you don't have a shim you can use an extra piece of cardstock. 

*To get the softer layer inside the flowers, die cut your layer in vellum.
