Good morning lovelies!! Ahem, I think you will see a continuing theme through my last posts – I’m just head over heels with flowers. Today I’m featuring another Spoon Flower and this time the petals are gestured downward. This is actually my demo flower – the one I put together while I was playing around – it went together easier than I thought so I decided to use it.
So I put together what I call a “clean shabby” birthday card. My sister turned me on to The Fixer Upper – with Joanna Gaines. I love the colors and the look and feel of everything they do! It just made me feel okay that these are the colors I reach for often. The embossing panel reminds me a lovely antique metal tile – I’m using Spellbinders Labels 34 Medallion Embossing Folder. I finished off the edges with Spellbinders A2 Tranquil Moments – I discarded most of the diecut saving the gorgeous corners to peek out around the edges. It’s ‘no stress’ trimming because my remedial fussy cutting is hidden by the other elements – yay! The stamp sentiment is a handy one from my word tool box, it’s Penny Black – Sentimental. Then the hero or heroine – Spellbinders Petal Pusher. I thought it would make a perfect focal for the entire card with the sweetness of the diecut flower. Don’t be afraid of the dimension – sending in a corrugated dvd box preserves the height and the recipient is in for a wow when they open the flap to an undisturbed flower.
- See this video —–> How to shape Spoon Flowers.
- Cut 3 flowers, shaping as done in video
- Place each set of petals on a foam mat and poke down in center using a something fat like a sharpie or 1/2 paint brush handle.
- Place a dollop of hot glue in the center of each flower and stack one on top of the other – offset each layer slightly.
- Stand back and admire :-)
