I have a new toy …. the eclips from Sizzix. Oh the possibilities! This machine cuts cleanly through every cardstock I’ve tried so far. It scores beautifully. I still need to learn all it’s tricks (and actually sit down and read the manual. Ha!). I used the eclips to cut scallop mats and the sentiment for my card. I paired it with the new Flower Soft Die Cut Dimensions Wildflowers 2, Christmas Green, Ultra Fine Sage, Ultra Fine Citrus Crush

I used the Sizzix eclips to cut the Yellow and Light Blue scallop circles (woo hoo – any size you want!) and white circle using Sizzix eclips Cartridge – Albums, Bags & Boxes. Sponge edge of circle with brown ink. Die cut sentiment with Sizzix eclips Cartridge – Flowers & Phrases from Dark Green cardstock. Attach to card. Shape the Die Cut Dimensions Wildflowers 2 punch outs  with a stylus. Add Flower Soft glue and Ultra Fine Citrus Crush to flower centers and  Christmas Green and  Pale Green around flowers. Tie ribbon in bow and attach with a glue dot.
