 ...but not difficult--just time consuming.  Here is a tip for using numerous dies:

TIP Before starting to put together on the cards. first run multiple dies through the Big Shot at once to save time.  Just lay the small pieces of cardstock with the dies on top of the cutting plate and run all of them through at once.  Do it again with other colors as desired.  Be sure to put all the pieces in a small container so they don't get lost in the shuffle.

I had a pleasant day here in the tower with the sun streaming through the windows and all these beautiful Botanical Blooms to play with!

BTW, these two cards were made to fit #6 3/4 envelopes, which are cheaper than the usual invitation size.  The dimensions are 5 1/2 x 7", folded in half to form a card front that is 5 1/2 x 3 3/4.  You still get 2 cards per sheet of cardstock.  Since I send out 500 or so cards a year, the savings are quite a bit for me.
