Scrappy Cat Wildflower Embosslits Card

Today we have a fun card project that is perfect for spring from Kim Roberto, the designer behind the Scrappy Cat collection for Sizzix! Scrappy Cat designs a wide variety of products including stamps, papers, and albums as well as die cutting and embossing products for Sizzix.

Welcome Kim to the Sizzix blog!





Instructions:

1. Cut pink cardstock with the dimensions 8 1/2" X 11" and fold in half.

2. Cut white cardstock allowing a 1/4" border around all four sides.

3. Adhere the white cardstock to the pink card.

4. Cut ribbon and adhere.

5. Using your Sizzix Embosslits Die Flower, Wildflower #2 designed by Scrappy Cat, cut out at least 6 flowers. I cut out 10 and colored all of them and selected my 6 favorite to adhere to the card.

6. Using your Gelatos and watercolor pencils, color the flowers in various different ways. Petals one color, tips another, etc. I decided to keep all centers of the flowers one color.

7. Using your pop dots, adhere 6 flowers to your card

Finished Card Size: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".


Enjoy,

Kim

  1. Hi, Kim - great to see your work here! We've been loving your baroque, tassels and insignias, but this embosslits die is certainly the touch of SPRING I could use right now! Nice job, Laurel - www.NewEnglandPaperCrafts.com

  3. Cute card. When I see the picture of this embosslit die on the Sizzix website it doesn't make me want to buy it so this really proves that you need to show actual examples of the die cuts and not just a picture of the die itself. After seeing the flowers on the card above I now have interest in purchasing that embosslit die.

    1. That is a great point! When looking at the product on Sizzix.com, be sure to click on the projects tab. You will find projects with instructions there that will feature the die you are looking at. It is a great resource (and one that has made me buy tons of dies that I needed to see used too!). This previous post from our blog might be helpful too: http://sizzixblog.blogspot.com/2012/11/q-which-die-cutting-supplies-do-i-need.html.
