I’m lovin’ the Flora Grandé dies!

If you haven’t invested in any of the Flora Grandé dies then I can definitely recommend them! They’re fab, fab, fab! A range of floral dies with accessorized scroll and tag dies designed by Prima (the famous paper flower people) for Sizzix. For this quick and easy card I used the ‘Flora’ die

658528-sizzix-bigz-l-die-flora-by-prima-marketing-inc-22274-p[ekm]250x250[ekm] 658528-sizzix-bigz-l-die-flora-by-prima-marketing-inc-[2]-22274-p

I used the middle sized flower from this die and the beautiful large scroll die called ‘Classique'…


Within ten minutes this is what I came up with…

The backing paper has a hint of green and blue in it so I matched the colour green to card for the border (made using a Martha Stewart deep border punch) and the Classique scroll. I used an embosssing folder to add texture to the flower which I tinted with the ‘Stormy sky’ Distress ink pad.

I used a small paper punch for the middle as I wanted a direct contrast to the Flora shape. Add ribbon and a few sparkles and there we go. Once I’ve put an insert inside, this will be another card for the charity box.

Have a great weekend everyone, hope you get some crafting time in!
