Brighten a winter day with a paper-pieced Crystal Corner and a pair of Layered Cosmos - diecut from the new 6x6 Color Wheel Collections. There are 108 beautiful colors to chose from - all on 110# cardstock for stamping, diecutting and layering.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a flowery-bright Spring Collection design.

Cut white cardstock with the largest Rectangle Basics die.  Prep Crystal Corner by rubbing it briskly with scrunched waxed paper to help remove the little pieces, then cut the rectangle. Splatter the rectangle with Imagine's Gold Sheer Shimmer Spritz and set it aside to dry.  You won't really notice the gold at first, but it adds shimmery sparkles to any background.

Cut the darker gold sheet from the Polished Foil Pad with Crystal Corner.

Cut the rectangle with Crystal Corner. Cut the pink, violet and orange 6x6 sheets  - from the Berry Red, Vibrant Violet and Sunny Orange Collections - with Crystal Corner.  Try to keep the offcuts in the Crystal Corner diecuts so it'll be easier to paper-piece later.

Attach Diecut 'n Bond or ScorTape behind the entire Crystal Corner cutout on the white rectangle.  Attach the rectangle to a top-folded A-2 card with additional tape.  Starting with the 3 corners place the gold diecut carefully in the cutout.  Add the pink, orange and violet pieces.

Cut two sets of Layered Cosmos from the lavender sheet in the Vibrant Violet Collection.  Cut the flower center from the violet cardstock used for the Crystal Corner.  Punch a ¼" circle of the violet cardstock, place it in the flower center and cut a smaller textured center circle for the small flower.  

Stamp the greeting - from the new Big and Little Reverse Words Clear Stamp and Die Set - on white cardstock with Summertime VersaFine Clair.  Heat-set it, then cut it with the set's coordinating die.

Attach the diecuts to the card - use foamtape for the greeting.

Try different color combinations for the Crystal Corner and flowers.  I think you'll be surprised at how the Polished Foil Pad's gold unifies the colors and makes them pop against the white card.

Thanks for visiting - see you again this weekend...
