I love the framed paper flowers on my project today. The pink flowers and green foliage are so perfectly highlighted with the all white card base and frame. Attaching the white and pink frame mats together with mounting tape creates another element of dimension and interest to the clean and simple card. I used the Rubbernecker 5101D Nested Marquee Die, 5109D Mixable Flower Stack, 5118D Leaf Group Die and the tiny dot flowers from the 5114D Mini Flower Stack.
Assembling the Framed Paper Flowers
The two frame layers were attached together using mounting tape and then attached to the card base with another layer of mounting tape. I did something a little different to form the flower petals. I used small tipped needle nose pliers instead of using my stylus and molding pad. I curled each petal tightly around the pliers but alternated the direction to create a fluffier looking flower. The flower layers were attached together using glossy accents. I cut several sections of the leaf group to create the foliage base for my flowers.
Creating the Framed Paper Flowers Arrangement
The foliage base and flowers were attached to the card base using glossy accents. Once the flowers were secured in place I tucked several smaller pieces of foliage under and around them with glossy accents to fill in the arrangement. I finished by adding the tiny cupped circle flowers to the foliage branches with glossy accents to add another element of pink. I think the double matted frame with the separation between the layers and card base creates the appearance of a shadow box.
Have you noticed that my recent blog posts have been filled with Rubbernecker dies? Rubbernecker began creating dies last year that coordinate with many of their existing stamp sets. Now they have begun offering free standing dies as well as gorgeous nesting die sets. I have been having so much fun playing with their new products. If you haven’t checked them out recently you will want to hop on over to see all that they have to offer.
I sure appreciate you coming by today and I hope you have enjoyed seeing my clean and simple framed paper flowers project.
