I have a feminine eyelet framed die cut flower card to share with you today. Framing a floral arrangement on a card front adds interest and another element of interest. My project today was made using the Elizabeth Craft Designs Bunch of Flowers, Curvy Leaves, and the Lawn Fawn Fancy Scalloped Circle Stackables.
I started by attaching the Lollipop layer to the card base using mounting tape. I created a double matted frame using the largest of the eyelet circle die and a Nestabilities Classic Circle and attached the two layers together using small pieces of mounting tape. I used the negative piece of what cardstock left from the eyelet frame cut to attach to the back of the frame using mounting tape and then attached it to the card base using ATG adhesive.
The flower sections were formed using my stylus and molding pad and attached together using glossy accents. I attached the flowers to the card base using glossy accents and finished them by adding drops of white Nuvo Crystal Drops. Hint: I have a small section of non-stick craft sheet that I use to apply drops of Nuvo Crystal Drops in several different sizes and my regularly used colors. It is a handy way to have them ready to use rather than making them and waiting for them to dry. I use the tip of my paper piercer to pick the drop off the sheet and then attach in the flower center using glossy accents. I formed the leaves gently with my fingers and tucked them in around the flowers and attached with glossy accents.
I think this would be perfect to use for a birthday, get well or thinking of you card. Thank you for coming by today and I hope you have been inspired to make your own framed die cut flower card.
I like to use red and white to create a clean and simple die cut Valentine card. Silhouette images appear so crisp and clean with the colorful contrast. I love using the Impression Obsession Songbird Branch cut in white and layered against the red Essentials by Ellen Folk Hearts. Layering the heart with the white Lawn Fawn Fancy Scalloped Rectangle Stackables adds another element of contrast for the images.
I used a large stylus and molding pad to form the leaves and the birds. The white scalloped background, the heart and the songbirds were attached using mounting tape. I never like creating projects where all the layers are attached flat to each other. Adding space between the layers creates an element of dimension and interest to a clean and simple card.
I really enjoy making projects with lots of detail but it is also fun to create an interesting clean and simple project. Thanks for coming by today. I hope I have inspired you to create a clean and simple die cut valentine card of your own,
I have another project to share with you today using die cut paper flowers and my favorite color combination. I love the Impression Obsession Ornate Oval Frame and pairing it with a floral arrangement using Spring Wreath and Foliage.
I cut the frames and attached the sections together from the backside using double stick tape. I applied small pieces of mounting tape all the around the the frame and attached it to the card base. The Ornate Oval Frame die cuts all the sections out at once. Each piece can be used individually or attached together to create a more substantial frame.
The foliage sections were cut apart and attached to the card base using glossy accents. The flowers were formed using a stylus from my Garden Tool Kit and molding pad. I attached the flowers together using glossy accents and then attached to the foliage using glossy accents. I applied small drops of white Nuvo Crystal Drops to a craft sheet to allowed them to dry. I picked them up with the tip of my paper piercer and attached them in the center of the flowers using glossy accents. I always like to use the “rule of odds” when creating a project with multiple images. An uneven number of five flowers is far more interesting to the eye than if I had used four or six.

I am so happy you came by today to share my project. I never tie of creating elegant and feminine floral projects with die cut paper flowers because they are perfect for so many occasions.
