This one is pretty as is. And if you don’t want to add the pop-up vase, you don’t have too. I’m really loving the new Encircled In Beauty dies. That’s what I’ve used for my focal image.

Because I embossed the sweet little flowers from the Strawberry Builder punch with the Ornate Floral embossing folder, I was able to add lots of texture and interest to the petals. Ready to take a peek inside?

By adding a few die cuts from the Forever Flourishing set, I was able to complete my floral arrangement and fill my vase with lots of color. Can you believe that the sweet little vase actually lies flat? I promise it really does.
