A Beautiful Way To Use Leftover Die Cut Flowers

Got lots of leftover die cut flowers? Use this new die to transform them into something gorgeous!

As I mentioned in this post, I often end up with lots of little leftover die cut flowers, leaves and other bits and pieces. And something totally prevents me from just throwing them away but how many can I keep? This new Spring Wreath die from Rubbernecker is a perfect solution! Its simple construction – one easy layer – but pretty shaping means it works beautifully with loads of different flower shapes.

To make this I paired the Spring Wreath with the Nested Loops, Small Flowers #4 and Kittie Says Spring Time.

Use a brand new die cut wreath and leftover die cut flowers to make a quick and easy card

Card Base and Sentiment Layer

  • Use white cardstock to cut an 2 sized card base and the largest nesting die.
  • Use purple cardstock to cut a 5.50″ x 4.25″ layer and attach it to the card base using ATG adhesive.
  • Secure the white layer and sentiment stamp in the MISTI, apply black ink to the stamp and stamp the sentiment.
  • Attach the sentiment layer to the purple card base using ATG adhesive.

Wreath and Flowers

  • Use green cardstock to cut the spring wreath.
  • Cut the bow and small flowers using purple cardstock.
  • Attach tiny pop dots to the back of the wreath and attach it to the sentiment layer.
  • Place the flowers face up on the molding pad and push down in the centers using a small tipped stylus.
  • Attach the flowers around the wreath using glossy accents.
  • Attach the bow to the wreath using small pop dots.
  • Finish by applying small crystal gems to the flower centers and bow center.
