Good Thursday morning. I have posted Christmas projects the last few days and decided to change it up and try out my new Hero Arts Paper Layering Swirl Flower. I paired the flower with the Lawn Fawn Scalloped Rectangle Stackables and My Favorite Things Leafy Greenery.
Right off let me say that I think this die cut is really beautiful just the way it is. But there was something driving me to add more dimension and I just couldn’t help myself.
I cut the flower out three times. Well not exactly. I didn’t want to waste paper so I cut sections of cardstock out just large enough to cover the middle petal layers out and then repeated with a small piece of cardstock for the tiny center petals. I used my snips to cut the small tabs all the around that were holding the petals in place. I repeated cutting the tiny petals section.
I laid all the sections face down on my molding pad and formed the petals with my large stylus. I turned the sections face up and pushed down in the center with my stylus to draw all the petals up. It was a little tricky with the large outer section since they all remained attached together but I managed. I wanted to build the layers up so I attached both the middle petal section and the smallest petal section to the card base with mounting tape. The flower was attached to the card base with glossy accents.
I formed a few pieces of foliage using my stylus and molding pad and tucked them in under the flower petals and attached with glossy accents. I added a large snow pearl to the flower center for the finishing touch.
Card size: 5.50” x 4.25”
