Colorful Seasons did not disappoint with this beautiful design by Sue Vine. Sadly this set and matching dies are on the retiring list and won’t be around after June 2nd. I have not used this set enough, but I sure did enjoy creating six cards of three designs recently on a relaxing Sunday morning. Of this design, aside from the gorgeous color palette Sue Vine chose, I love the shading on the flowers and leaves, made with a sponge dauber. Such a simple technique that makes a big difference.
Full list of supplies needed, listed below. You will need a Die Cutting Machine for this project.
