Recently, I saw a card that used the surrounding space instead of the die cut itself as a major part of the design. I liked the look so much I played with the idea myself . . .
I first cut the stitched edge layer and then die cut with the Leafy Flourish. I backed it with a single layer of cardstock to add a little dimensional lift. A few mail-able flat layers of leaves and flowers and this peaceful card is pretty much done.
