Take a card panel 4 inches by 6 inches and cut out an oval window using the middle outline oval die from the Picot Petite Ovals dies. Cut another bigger oval and Distress with Peeled Paint Distress ink and spritz a little water. Add this under the oval window. Add two layers from the Picot Petite Ovals die cuts.
For the second card, the focal flowers are the Daisy flowers. To make this card, make a 6 inches square card base and mat it with pastel green coloured card stock that has been cut a little smaller than the card base. Add two more mat layers of gold and white card stock. The last layer is cut from the beige colored card and decorated with Hannah Elise small frame die and Picot Petite ovals die.
