March Card by Gerry van Gent

Hello Sizzix Friends!
Can you believe it? It`s already March.
And that means that Spring is just around the corner.
To Welcome the month of March I created a card for you
where I am using the new Jumbo Tatttered Florals die.

To make the flowers I used white soft packaging material.
I die cut two sizes of the tattered flowers - 
for each flower I die cut a few of the flowers.
I also used 4 different colours paint (sprays!).
Once the flowers were dry I used a heat tool to wrinkle the petals.
N.B. It takes only a second to heat in the middle so the petals will pop up.

This is how they looked like before I added the brads in the centres.

The leaves were die cut from the Garden Greens.
I die cut them from corrugated cardboard and pattern paper.
The die-cut leaves from pattern paper were also embossed and
then adhered on top of the corrugated cardboard ones.

Have a great Sunday!


  1. Beautiful card, Love those flowers......

  2. Love the airy look of the flowers. Is there some kind of brand name or a search term I can use to find the "packing material"? I only have the regular tattered flowers die but it should work.
