Option 1 print2cut
I don't do piecing so on the one I actually made I cut the pretty scalloped frame and the mat pieces and did P2C on the flowers and vase.
I isolated just the flowers and vase and used this really nice feature in eCAL (the eclips version of SCAL) that makes it MUCH easier to do a shadow mat so I could print2cut just that part. You'll find it under the Object menu: add shadow layer.
To cut: There are a lot of pieces in the svg file but only 6 real shapes, the rest are just duplicates or background papers. There is:
- 3 pieces for each hibiscus flower inside, the mat back, the center stamen,
- a leaf,
- the vase,
- scalloped frame.
Since the text most probably won't trace well you would just recreate it in your cutting software.
Option 3 Print all
Use the .jpg file to print. It is high resolution and if printed on matte photo paper is beautiful.
Hopefully this file with all its pieces will provide you with many design variations.
Hibiscus font: that's it's name so dafont or others have it for free
Text is done in Renaissance, another free font and works really well with a fine point pen like cri-kits.

I know this is a long post but there are so many new users of SCAL/eCAL I might have gone a little overboard. I did a test look in SCAL 2.043 and I can isolate the flowers and vase and make a nice cutting mat for print2cut there, but since I don't have the cutter anymore I couldn't take it all the way.
