Welcome to day 2 of the Clear & Simple Stamps previews for the March release. Today we are showcasing dies. There are some amazing dies in this collection... coordinating stamp & die sets, large dies perfect for specialty applications (banners, party favors, etc.), favor boxes, labels... it's a long list of goodness.
I chose the new Build-a-Flower die set to create this wreath card. This die set has: one large bloom, one small bloom, 4 leaves in various sizes, and 2 "button" floral centers (1 large / 1 small). The leaves have a darling embossed detail and the floral blooms are perfect for layering. Plus, the "button" centers have lots of applications aside from the flowers.
I used a 1 3/4" circle die to create the middle portion of my wreath then stamped a sentiment from Let's Celebrate to peek through. I added a bit of heft to my blooms by backing them with thin chipboard (recycled packaging). I adore these flowers and know they will show up on lots of my projects.
Visit the other CSS team members to preview more of the new dies... lots of wonderful inspiration:
