A pretty floral card is the order for today and this is using dies that I have used before so if you have them it's time to get them out again.
Matting Basics are always useful dies to have in your crafting collection and I use mine regularly

- S6-002 5x7 Matting Basics B .

With die #7 from Matting Basics A cut two and create a cream base card
With die #7 from the B set cut one layer in pink
With die #6 from the A set cut another layer in cream
With die #6 from the B set cut another layer in pink
Cut one layer with the Two Way Street die
Stamp and heat emboss your sentiment onto some cream card and with die #4 from Labels 33 cut two layers one from the cream sentiment card and the other in pink.
Cut the pink one in half as shown
Arrange around the cream sentiment layer so that a small border is created at the top and bottom
Layer the Two Way Street on to the pink layer with dots of glue
Add both to the cream layer and wrap these with lace and ribbon
Add some foam pads on the back
Layer the next pink layer onto the base card and then add the previous step to the top
Use foam under the sentiment label and add centrally to the card
Glue a small bow in place along the bottom left of the sentiment
Arrange the flowers on to the card as you like and sprinkle them with glitter for a lovely effect.
These are the flowers I have used. Starting from the ;left they are ...
Gypsophila, Chrysanthemum, Carnation, Roses in three sizes 5/10/15 mm
