Island-floral-cardI have to admit, there are some cards that I like more than others, and this is one of them. I particularly like this one because while it looks involved, it's really quite easy! (That's my specialty I think….cards that aren't too hard to make, but look difficult!!)

Anyway – this card uses the Island Floral Bigz die for the Big Shot for the focal floral accessory.  By sponging the edges of the cardstock, I think it adds an extra depth.  The gold glimmer brad holds the die cuts together (there's a hole in the centre of them) and adds a bit of bling.  Love the Lace Ribbon Border punch – one of my new favourites, I think!  Plus tone on tone stamping of En Francais makes the background a little more interesting.

I think you will also LOVE the Christmas card that I came up with using this die as well!! Thanks to the sharp eyes of a club member, Jo-Ann, I was able to visualize this floral die being used in a whole new way.  If you want to see what became of that observation, be sure to be signed up for my newsletter!  Newsletter subscribers will be receiving my Twelve Weeks of Christmas as a special "thank you" for being part of my email list – each week brings a new card, wrap or gift idea to make your holiday season a little more crafty!  Sign up HERE or click below to be sure that you won't miss out – it starts OCTOBER 5th – ONE WEEK TODAY!!
