Don't Forget to Write Kit

 Today I decided to make a card with a kit I purchased years ago from Papertrey Ink. I was enticed by all the beautiful cards made by the DT. I previously made lots of cards for gifts, using the cut-outs that came with the kit. However, I was never happy with my attempts to stamp the flowers on the die-cut. 

I made many more attempts today and this was the result...

The reason I found it so difficult, was because it's tricky to line up all images. I mostly got it right this time, but I think I'll probably just use the frames and sentiments in the future. 
I used textured card-stock and found Distress Oxide Inks gave the best impression. 

I was inspired to make this card because the theme at The Flower Challenge is to include a shape.

It's their 5th Birthday this month and they haves prizes, so pop on over to their blog and join the fun!

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog! I love to read your comments:)

  3. Well, I'm happy you kept at it because this card is just so beautiful.
    I know it can be tricky to position the stamp image on a die-cut but your perseverance paid off.
    Thank you for sharing your card with us at THE FLOWER CHALLENGE.
    Stay healthy and safe.
