Spotlight on Flora
As soon as I saw the new release collection in January, I knew I just had to have Flora in my life.
She must be one of the most delicate dies ever. I have seen cards using the negative of the die (the spcae on the card where the die has been cut from) but the die itself has such pretty detail it just had to be.
The card base is a 7" square. The card used is is Foundations Bright White and Crafts Too Rosa Lustre card, the sheen is so lovely, one of my favourite colours too!

With the same Rosa card, I have used the main and second die from Bella to cut two shapes, cut these in half and placed them behind the white octagon
Using white card, the same dies were used to cut out another Bella for the centre shape. I used adhesive pearls to embellish around the edges too
One of my most favourite new dies is the Passionflower, I think you will be seeing a lot more of this flower
there are 23 dies in just the one packet! Real value for money in any currency!
In this card, I have cut one base out of white card with double sided adhesive attached so that I could get an even coverage once dipped into Frosty Sparkle Glitterbitz. I have then cut the passionflower from Rosa card, gently teased the petals slightly for a little dimension …
