Cheery Lynn Made You Smile


Hi, today I'm sharing a card using a few new dies from the April Cheery Lynn Designs release.  If you missed all the lovely new dies yesterday you can see them HERE.  I made the coral roses and green leaves using the Tea Rose Medium die and coloring with distress ink.  The Chrysanthemum's were made with the Chrysanthemum Strip die and the centers were sponged with blue distress ink. 


I layered a few different dies on the main part of the card.  The Horizon Coved Square was cut with cream card stock and glued to a blue-green 5.5" square card base.  On top I glued a piece of patterned card stock, then layered the Fleur de Lis Doily on top.  I used some of the pretty fleur de lis cut outs from the doily, colored them brown and then glued half back into the negative space in the doily.  There was an even number of spaces so I covered up the space where two would have met with the floral arrangement.  The circle and scalloped circle stackers were popped up with foam adhesive.  The circle dies were used as stencils to color the centers with distress ink after I stamped the sentiment from Riley and Company.

Last I cut the corners using the smaller die that comes with the Royal Scandinavian Tag 1 die.  The lacy design coordinated well with the Fleur de Lis Doily.
