In the happy birthday card shown below, we have used the Marianne branch die and die-cut it from a layer of watercolour paper. The die-cut was then removed from the watercolour paper and coloured with Peeled Paint distress ink. The watercolour card was distressed with Salty Ocean and Broken China and sprayed with a heavy mist of water. When assembling, the card we put the diecut back into the watercolour layer and added a second branch on top (that's also been coloured with Peeled Paint distress ink). The small gold flowers with white centers came from the CheeryLynn designs (B364-Baby's Breath Flower kit). The kit has the two different size flowers as well as a wonderful branch approximately 2 1/4 inches long. The final card was sprayed with Sheer Shimmer spritz for some added pizzazz.
You might want to consider using some of your dies as inlays for a unique look. The multiple layers also adds a new use for a single die with great results.
