For some reason, I just love metal dies. Sure, I realize there are alternatives out there with electronic machines and digital files. However, there is something about running a die manually through a machine and picking out the different types of paper to layer together, that I just love. Putting together 3D dies, for me, is a mindful activity and I just adore the end result.
For my first card, I die cut several flowers from the Craft-a-Flower Cosmos Layering Set( ALTN ) in using two different colours of cardstock. One in pink hues and the other in peach. I layered them on top of each other and adhered them down onto the background. Placing your flowers a little off-edge makes the background look more natural. TIP: when you trim off the flowers hanging off the paper, use the leftovers to fill more white space.
One thing I like most about these flowers, is that there is an optional Cosmos Layering Die Set + Gradient Cardstock( ALTN ) with cardstock in four shades, so you can easily get die cutting!

I love your beautiful cards and I love the CAF Cosmos set! The sentiment on the second card is so perfect for these times.
Such a sweet card.
Both cards are beautiful. I love how you showed they could be used without the stems , creating a unique card.
Love your cards, Justine. So clean looking and beautiful colors.
Beautiful cards. Love the flower background on the first one – a different idea. Thanks for sharing and for the inspiration. 🙂
Great cards! I wouldn’t have thought to use the yellow card base for the second card but it really works with the sentiment. Looks like the sun behind the card. Thanks for sharing!
The design is so pretty! Wow!
