Altered Dies #17

Hi and welcome to my blog! I have another altered die card to show you today. I made flowers from the Spellbinders Shuttered Window die! As you can see I chose bright summery colors. Summer lingers a long time here in South Carolina! I love birds and birds go with flowers, so I just had to add this little cutie to the card. I hope you enjoy seeing how the flowers were made.

I started with this die. You see that the top of the window looks like half of a flower.

I cut out 2 windows and cut off both the tops.

When the 2 tops are put together they make a flower! As you see on my card, I added patterned paper behind the flowers for them to stand out more.

I made three to go on my card. The Dina Wakely bird was stamped on patterned paper and fussy cut. 

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful and blessed day.
