Die Cutting Outside the Box (FS639)

Congratulations to this week's Splitcoaststampers' Featured Stamper Patsy (patstamps2001). 
I chose this card as my inspiration:

I focused on Patsy's :
-floral theme
-flowers inside and outside the border

I changed:
-season and colours

I started by stamping the arrangement from Mondo half on and half off each side of a 4.25x5.5 panel of white cardstock, with pale gray ink.

I then coloured selected flowers and the background with Copic markers. I shaded several flowers with gray markers to leave them 'white'.

I used the matching die to cut the flowers out of the panel, and then I used a stitched rectangled die to cut down the remainder of the panel. 

I placed the 'remainder' onto a white card base and then popped up the flowers around the edges so that they fit back into the panel, but appear to over hang the edges.

Here's a video:

I used:


  1. This is beautiful Ardyth - love those white flowers, they are really stunning amongst the other coloured ones

  2. Your card is so gorgeous! Loved the video as it answered all the questions that I had - thank you!
