It's easy to get hooked on all the lovely dies available on the market right now, and there are more and more to choose from every month too, for just about every theme you can think of . This card is a mixture of embossing, Cheery Lynn and Tonic Studios Dies and punched flowers.
The great thing about dies over punches is that they will outlive punches which eventually wear and could break, plus the fact that you can cut thicker materials with dies, like heavy weight card, chipboard, foam and fabric.
The tonic die used is called Pick of the Bunch Trellis Wall Die.
the flowers are from old EK success daisy punches, and if you like the shape, its difficult to source the punches, so go for the spellbinders dies or the woodware punches instead
My all time favorite technqiue - partial embossing using a recent edition Papermania folder:
