Spellbinders has a whole set of Die D-Lites ‘Create’ flower dies, the Gerber Daisy is just one of them so be sure to check out the rest and see which ones you’d like to add to your flower die collection. In the video below I show you step-by-step how I created the pink flower on the right above and then a complete walk through as we make the card on the left. You can see how just a change of color, from Marigold to Pink, can totally change the look of the daisy.
The flowers were colored with combinations of Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Spiced Marmalade with Dried Marigold and Picked Raspberry with Spun Sugar. The petals were cut from light cream cardstock. I love how they turn out! It’s just a matter of staining a portion of each petal and then gluing to a petal base and stacking from largest to smallest. By curling each petal toward you it only takes a moment to see the flower begin to take shape. Easy, peasy!
The 5″ x 7″ card was created with Spellbinders Divine Eloquence dies. By far one of my very favorites. This time I cut the dies several times and split some of them to give extra filigree to the sides. That’s always a great way to get another look, by splitting the cut in half sometimes even quarters. Alternating between the cream cardstock and the latte color just makes the layers pop. I also added foam dimensionals to the back of each set of mats giving just a little height and allowing the layers of flourishes and filigrees to show. The ribbon is white rayon seam binding that was colored with Distress inks.
I hope you’ll join me in the video to see how easy it is to assemble both flowers and cards. And don’t forget to check out all the other flower dies available in the store, you can have your own florist shop at home with just a few dies and some paper!
Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!
