What's your favourite flower die?

Do you have lots of flower dies?  I do.... from Tim Holtz Tattered Florals, to rolled roses dies from Die-namics, Memory Box silhouette flower dies, Simon Says silhouette dies, Cherry Lynn flower dies.... so many different dies.

One of my favourites has to be Tim Holtz/Sizzix Tattered Florals die.  It is so versatile
 

There are 4 different sized and shaped flowers.  So you can do so much with it.
Today I am sharing a card I made that uses a flower I made with this die.  I had some instruction from my friend Sue on how to make lovely flowers.... It's all about wetting the die cut and scrunching it up, leaving it to dry and then carefully unsrunch and layer together... the thing is to be patient and wait for the petals to dry fully...


As you can see the texture you get this technique.

So hopefully you'll get your dies and embossing folders out and join us for the July summer flowers challenge... link up your project here
