A shimmery card with lots of depth and several layers. I've used some fabulous older collections of cutting dies by Sue Wilson, for Creative Expressions. SW is ONE of my absolute favorite die designers on the market.
I’ve used a wax paper roll for the flowers!
This gives the flowers a softer, more delicate look and was crumbles so much better than vellum. There are many variations of wax papers and brands out there but I get mine from the $1 store for crafting. The bonus doing is that you can mess up lots because it's a whole roll! So keep on trying.
Heavy Golden Gift Wrapping Paper
I've die-cut both the background and top panels out of the wrapping paper that was backed by adhesive and card-stock for stability. The background die-cut leafy frame was then cut into 4 sections to extend/enlarge the leafy design. I used the same die for the front panel to continue to design, and left it as a single layer.
These are just ideas I wanted to try and both types proved to cut beautifully with the dies!
