Flowers, flowers....


Today I will show you a card I made with flowers, Pansies, from my “Say it with Flowers Collection”. There are Pansies in various colors, but my favorite is the most common and simple, the color that I painted. I think this card is for greetings, thinking of you, birthday, just because ... any occasion. I like that my cards have dimension, 3D effect, so I always copy the images at least 3 times, and cut out each image with much patience and my little scissors. To this card I cut out the complete five flowers and then cut out only three, so the card has different levels.
