Lace Hummingbird Flourish

Do you have a Pinterest board?   I recently started one and would love it you would follow me...just click the Pinterest button on the left of the blog.  And if you like the cards on this blog, I would really love it if you would pin the card to your board!  There's a Pin It button just to the right of my signature at the bottom of each post to make it easy!
I've been wanting time to play with some of the new Cheery  Lynn dies and finally did!  Well...I finally played with one of the new dies, but it's a start.  :-)



I started with a 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" card base of Pearlized Esse White Metallic cardstock.  You can really see the shimmer in one of the close-ups below!   I cut the first mat from Stardream Ruby cardstock using the smallest Grand Big Scalloped Circles (Spellbinders).   Ruby is really not red in this case but a very rich purple!

The largest die from Butterfly Circles was used to cut the next mat from Butterflies cardstock.  The embossed butterflies in this cardstock are so dainty!  The butterflies that are cut out from the circle die can be saved and used on another project.  I cut the Lace Hummingbird Flourish from the Ruby cardstock as well.  So delicate...but that's what hummingbirds are, right??  I placed a single Baby White Pearl in the center of the flower where the hummingbird is drawing nectar.  I used Joy! Foam Pads large and small to pop the hummingbird up a bit for some dimension.

Lastly, I cut the corners from the Lace Corner Deco E set and adhered them with a Quickie Glue Pen.






If you love hummingbirds like I do, you are sure to want some or all of the new hummingbird dies from Cheery Lynn! The two in addition to the Lace Hummingbird Flourish are the Lace Hummingbird and the Hummingbird.
