I enjoy creating a card with handmade die cut paper flowers and a delicate decorative frame. My project today was made using Becca Freeman’s Tallulah Frill Layering Frame Small set by Spellbinders along with Spellbinders Foliage and flowers made using the Succulent and Mum Flower set. I thought the monochromatic cream paper would be perfect to create an elegant floral project.
I used my magnetic platform to secure the two frame dies in place so I could cut them both at the same time. I used a layer of wax paper between the dies and cream cardstock to protect it from the dies leaving marks. I ran the platform through one direction and turned it around and ran through the opposite direction. I wanted to make sure I had a good cut since the dies are so intricate. I turned both frames face down and attached them together using 1/8″ double stick tape. I removed the tape, applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it to the card base.
I formed the flowers using a stylus and molding pad and attached the sections together using glossy accents. The secret to creating dimensional flowers is using a good stylus and a fairly thick molding pad. I sometimes use two pads together so the petals roll well with being pushed down with the stylus. I formed the foliage leaves gently with my fingers and attached the sections to the card base using glossy accents. I added champagne pearls to the flower centers to finish.
Thank you so much for coming by today and I hope you are inspired to make your own handmade die cut paper flowers with an elegant decorative frame.
