Some flower die cut cards

Hi everyone!  I have a couple quick and easy cards to share today.  With my first card, I die cut and embossed a flower shape from the front of the card and adhered pattern paper on the inside using foam squares (to give it some depth).  Then I decorated the flower opening with another flower and topped it with a Prima resin flower. 
Next I made a little 3x3 card using the die cut from the first card and all the same supplies -easy peasy.  The second layer flower die on both cards is from the soon to be released Jewel Flowers and Flourishes Spellbinders set.  You can see the sneak peek reveal of that set here.  Before removing the flower from the die, I inked the flower with versamark ink and embossed it with glitter EP.  I love that effect!
This will be my last post for a couple weeks.  We leave this weekend for a family vacation to Disneyland (I haven't been since I was 20)!  We are going with my sister and meeting up with Bill's brother and his family.  It's gonna be one big ole happy time with lots of family.  Oh and we are taking a day trip over to Legoland, which my boys are looking forward to more than Disney -lol!  So I will see you all in August!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.  I'll leave you with a couple close up pictures.
