Garden Variety Release Blog Blitz
by Sue McRae


Welcome to another day of our Garden Variety Blog Blitz! Hope you’ve been enjoying all the amazing projects created by the design team!

I’m showcasing the Flora Bloom Solid Set which includes 5 dies. I only used the 2nd largest die on my card today. I die cut the bloom from white card stock, placed the new Whittle Spinner Background Die on top of the die cut and sent it back through my die cutting machine so it could add the swirly cut line design into the flower. I really love how this looks.


Next I took Distress Inks to add colour to the flower. I spritzed the flower with Perfect Pearls for some added shimmer and added gems to the flower centre.


I cut a piece of patterned paper from the new Garden Folly paper pack and adhered it to my card base and stamped my sentiment. I added a frame from white card stock using the Double Stitch Rectangle Frames set, added my flower and tucked in the new Adriana Small Curve Border behind it. I finished off with a butterfly from the Intricate Cut Butterflies set.
