Flower Card Using Circle Dies

Supplies:

I cut thin strips for the stems and used leaves from an old punch from my stash. The sentiment is diecut from a piece from Doodlebug Designs striped paper for a subtle texture.

The background is stamped with a wood grain background stamp in light colored ink (or you can use our Embossed Woodgrain cardstock. The"grass" is diecut with a piercing background die from Stampin Up! The tree trunks are trimmed from a branch die from my stash (or you can hand trim or draw your own).

Did you know you can emboss with a stencil? Just run it through your diecutting machine using the same "sandwich" as you would a diecut, except you will need to add a few paper shims to add some pressure to make the impression.

I used a black marker to finish the edges of all the spider parts. The legs are hand drawn.
