For today’s blog hop I created two cards using the newly released Peeking Leaves Cover Die and Abstract Landscape Cover Die.

For my first card, I started by cutting my die out of white cardstock to create a delicate background for floral die-cuts.

I combined it with floral embellishments from Enjoy the Ride - Bouquet Builder Ephemera and a sentiment from Thinking of You Stamp Set

For my second card, I die cut Abstract Landscape Cover Die out of white cardstock and used Altenew markers to colour and embellish every piece of the design.

For the pink parts I used a small stamp from Wildflower Doodles Stamp Set. My last step was to add a sentiment from Thinking of You Stamp Set.

Here is the full line up for the blog hop today.
