Pretty Peony - Sizzix Handmade Card

Hi crafty friends! Welcome back to my happy place! I hope you're having a wonderful and creative day.

For today I have a card made with one of the new die sets from the latest release from Sizzix UK, called Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 2PK - Pretty Peony.

I love using intricate dies and create clean and simple cards! The fastest way to do this is by die cutting the dies from white cardstock and mount them on a colored cardstock.

That's exactly what I did for this card. After I die cut the Pretty Peony die twice I mounted it in two opposite corners using foam squares on a jam colored panel.
Then I white embossed a beautiful sentiment from Create a Smile Stamps on a vellum strip and adhered it to the card.
I glued the panel on a white card base, I added a few clear sequins and my card was done!
Easy, fast and with a gorgeous result, right?! 

Now onto some news from Sizzix. The awesome crafters from Sizzix UK thought about all the new crafters who love the idea of die cutting but they don't know where to start! Don't worry!
