Cheery Lynn Sending Love

Today I'm sharing a card with a twist on Cheery Lynn's Lots of Layers challenge.  I used the new Step Card Bundle Set-3 to create a garden scene.  

I folded and cut the center of an A2 card instead of cutting the side like in the above piture. That's one of the great things about this die, you can move it around to create the look you want and make entirely different cards.  I used the flowers that come with the set to embellish the card.  Here's a photo from above so you can see how the flowers and grasses were layered.

I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as an A2 card front and cut it with the main step die.  I glued the patterned paper to the front of  step card and trimmed the sides a little so the patterned paper fit perfectly.  

I cut the flowers and leaves using the flower dies in the set and colored them with distress ink before adding rhinestone centers.  The Sending and Love die cuts were colored to match the roses.  

I cut multiple layers of the Grass Border for the front two layers.  For the tall grass on the back layer I used the Cattails & Reeds die.  The Faerie Mushrooms were colored with distress ink and tucked in between the grasses.  I also cut a white card stock backing to layer behind the mushroom tops.

Last I added the sweet hummingbird and dragonfly dies from the Tiny Things With Wings die and added clear stickles to the dragonfly wings and roses for sparkle.
