Sue Wilson made a card similar to this which can be seen here. I knew when I saw her card that I wanted to try the technique with a die I had -- the Gillian.
The Gillian comes with an outer die that, if used with the doily die, would totally detach the die cut from your paper. I wanted the die to stay in the paper so I cut it without the outer frame.
Sue also used pixie powders for her background but since I don't have any pixie powders, I used a piece of colorful scrapbook paper, which I also used for the flower. The finished size of this card is 8" x 5.75".
Dies used on my card:
Sue Wilson Frames and Tags Gillian, Sue Wilson Stitched Flags, SW Delicate Daisies Complete Petals, SW Orange Blossom Leaves, SW Double Pierced Background Rectangles, Dee's Distinctively Berry Sprigs
