  7. Lin, this is a lovely card. I have a question ....did you lay down white and black card on top of the card base, then fussy cut the flowers and put them on top to hide the seam. Please advise. Thank you in advance.

    1. Connie, here's what I did: started with a white top-folded card base, added my black panel, then stamped and fussy-cut the flowers and added them along the seam.

  9. Beautiful card. Your fussy cutting of the flowers is so perfect. With the change of sentiment, this card would be great for various occasions.
