Dogwood Blossoms

Good Monday Morning!
Back on the Dies R Us Blog today!
To create this card I first die cut my beautiful Dogwood Blossom Corner by Poppy Stamps.  Twice. 
I cut 2 complete sets in white card stock and then a bunch of blossoms in light pink.

I then colored the vines and flowers using Copic Markers.

Then I simply layered the light pink blossoms over the colored ones.  I off set them a bit to add a bit of dimension to the flowers. 
Here I die cut my Birds by Impression Obsession also in white card stock.

This way I could color them how I wanted with Copic Markers.
Using Spellbinders Fanciful Lattice and Perfectly Pierced Frames I created my background layer and sentiment label.  Sentiment stamped in Black Licorice ink by Gina K Designs, You Are Not Alone.  Nuvo Crystal Drops in Dandelion Yellow for accents.  Swiss Dots Embossing Folder for texture.
This card will be entered into the Challenges at Simon Says Wednesday, Things With Wings and Scrapy Land, Embossing (heat or dry).

  9. Love this card. the background paper is perfect with that lattice design and the dark paper in the center makes the flower and birds pop.The dogwood corners are perfect for framing and look great in the two colors. I love those little IO birds and use them a lot. I'll bet that even with all the layers, dimension, and detail you could mail this with one stamp.
