I loved this technique shown by Debbie Hughes for the OnLine classes Clean and Simple 4 Day 2.  It’s called Faux Paper Cutting and it’s a “collage” of pieces of die cut shapes.  She did hers in a heart and I tried mine in a circle.  It’s very therapeutic… almost like making puzzles…

Here’s my card:


I have used many die cuts to do this:

Memory Box Open Studio Meadowbird brand #30004 (that is the cute bird and the 2 branches underneath).

Memory Box Cherish Border (for the hearts) #98282

Memory Box Kensington border (for butterflies and flowers) #98743

Memory Box Tender Leaves #98313

Memory Box Butterfly Delights #98130 (for the tiny butterflies)

Memory Box Lavish Branch #98486 (for small leaves and flowers)

Lawn Fawn Stiched Journaling card #LF578 (for some of the hearts)

Simon Says stamp Butterfly Tendrils #1766 (for swirls and butterflies)

and Elizabeth Craft Designs for the “Happy Birthday” #717

The card stock is Stardream Lapis and Bazzill shimmer CS (for the turquoise border).  The card base is white Stardream.
