I wanted a diecut background and Tonic Studios have some sumptuous patterned panels, like this one, coming out (C&C had the exclusive when I didn't have the pennies!) so I looked at what I had and made a plan!
I used just the ONE die from my Liberty Shutter set on this one, and just rotated it 4 times on the front of a 15x15 card. I made a card insert to keep the strength and cut a flower from the Beautiful Blooms set Woodland Aster and some bits of foliage from some of the other sets. Really simple, so pretty and definitely flat enough to post on a first class stamp!
|I've made the full shuttter card with this but it's so cool to take one or two elements and make something completely different!|
So for this one I used TWO of the dies and just worked my way around using the same principle. A couple of heart punches to finish off and it was a couple of quick cards made very easily!
