Dogwood Blossoms

Donna Phelan back again on the Dies R Us Blog. 
Today I am sharing a pretty little all occasion card with you today.
I have used the Poppystamps, Dogwood Blossom Corner die, which at the time of this writing was no longer available in the Dies R Us Store.  Our dies move in and out of the Store so quickly, so if you see something you like I suggest you snatch it up like *snap*. 
Luckily we have many other styles of pretty corner dies that may be substituted for this type of creation.  Here is the link to Corner Dies.
I have also used the fantastic Memory Box Distress Windham Collage die. 
This set is a must have as it comes with 4 different dies in 4 different designs!

Choosing one of the designs from the Memory Box Distress Windham Collage  I cut the top left portion from the white card stock panel and backed it with a pink card stock, lighter than my card base.  I then  cut the gorgeous Dogwood Blossoms Corner die twice, from pink and green card stock. 
I snipped the pretty pink blossoms off, sponged a bit with Melon Mambo ink 
and layered over the green die cut.
Heat embossed my sentiment in White Embossing Powder on a pink card stock strip and adding a few Adhesive Pearls for my accents.  My Designer Paper was a perfect match found in my stash.  Corner punch and an extra layer of pink card stock to show a bit more interest to my design.
If I fold this card inside out for mailing I may be able to get away with a single stamp....shhhhhh!
Thanks for popping in!

  3. What a lovely card! It's so nice to start seeing spring / flowery cards again. I fold many of my cards inside out for mailing. One stamp usually does the trick! ;o)

  4. So purdy!!! I always love the collage die, it really makes a card pop. I really like your background patterned paper, and those flowers are the perfect final touch. Great design here!!!

  5. So gorgeous and I love the die cut areas that back up those flowers perfectly. Awesome background paper too.
