I found the most beautiful die on a recent trip to Violette's in Lakeland! It is an Impression Obsession die called Easter Cutout Square. It is so delicate and pretty that I knew I needed it to make Easter cards this year. I got out a bunch of pastel card stock and had a great time mixing and matching them to make my cards! I kept them simple because I wanted the die cut image to stand out...
I was a little bit nervous because we all know how tricky intricate dies can be and I was cutting out a lot of them. I decided to use folded dryer sheets underneath the die and card stock to help in removing all of the tiny little pieces. It worked great. I still had to poke some of the pieces out but lots came out on the dryer sheet too. Here's a close-up of the pink version...
I used a bunch of different colors of card stock and I honestly can't decide which one I like best! I wanted the die raised off the surface of the card so I put foam tape behind the larger areas and used dots of silicone glue on the tinier ones. Once the glue dried, the square was very sturdy!
