Bright and Bold

I thought I would share a couple of really bright cards I have made using the new sizzix dasies die.  These flowers are so easy to make and you can cut multiple layers so great if your making a few quick cards!!

This card uses some of the bright Sweet and Sour papers, I love these papers - some sheets have a glossy sheen and some flocked, I have die cut a daisy with Pumpkin Pie card adding a button from the Brights Collection for the centre, a quick punched boarder with the scalloped edge punch and a strip of Melon Mambo card. So quick and easy!!

This card is very similar using the Newsprint papers - I have finally cut in to them!  The flower is die cut in Melon Mambo with a button from the neutrals collection and a length of linen thread.  I have made a ribbon band for the centre of the card using Very Vanilla satin and the narrow Basic Black taffetta.

I chose not to put a sentiment on the cards until I need to sent them to someone.  It is a beautiful day here today, sunny and it feels lovely and warm 20'C!!!  I do hope this weather is here to stay, it makes you feel so much better!!

Beautiful cards Angela. Love the hot colours. I know what you mean about lovely DP. I either can't use it for ages or use it all the time lol!

The weather here has been lovely too. Really nice to walk the dogs when it's like this.
