Another Curvy card for Easter

 Continuing with the theme of using the Curvy dies and stamp set, I made another card which I made for Easter.  I wanted to show the versatility of this stamp set as well as increase my comfort level with the curved die.

I started with a Thick Whisper White card stock card base to which I added a 4 by 5 1/4" piece of Fine Art Floral DSP.

On top of the DSP I added 2 pieces of Flirty Flamingo card stock die cut separately using the curvy die (floral pattern).  Note, they are not just cut in half.

These 2 pieces were adhered to the top and bottom of the DSP leaving a space between them. This is a great way to display DSP and another way to use the Curvy die.

On a separate piece of Whisper White, I stamped a flower sprig as well as 3 birds.  The flowers, and birds were coloured with Stampin' Blends, and then die cut using the curvy dies.  I also die cut 2 extra sprigs of foliage using Old Olive card stock.

These were adhered below the bottom curve as shown in the above picture, adding the floral strip and the birds using dimensionals.  A bow made with gold metallic trim was added to the left side of the floral strip, and some rhinestones were added randomly on the front.

The sentiment, from Itty Bitty Greetings, was stamped on a scrap of Whisper White die cut with the Stitched so Sweetly die.
