Good morning friends! While it is snowing and the cold is closing in, how about a little breath of spring? Yep, that’s just what I was in the mood for – I rummaged through the goodies I had that I had not used and pulled out the Funky Flowers Set from Waltzingmouse Stamps. Layering up a filigree frame gave me both a place to perch my flowers and as well as a place to nestle a sentiment from the Light of the World set. Color inspired by some luscious satin ribbon I picked up on a trip, I matched the color with some of my ink pads and was in business. I used the Funky Flowers cut files to digitally cut the shape of the flowers and then I stamped on them, then popped a pearl brad in the center.
Here’s your Step By Step Recap of die cuts and layers, from the bottom up: Start out with a Card Base 7″ tall by 5-1/2″ wide (or see how to make that size with the Hinge Technique HERE), foam tape, pink matting layer cut to 6-1/4″ x 4-7/8″, cream layer cut to 6-1/8″ x 4-3/4″, foam tape, green matting layer cut to 5-3/8″ x 4-1/4″, design paper layer cut to 5-1/4″ x 4-1/8″, foam tape, die cut layer using Spellbinders Filigree Delight, foam tape, die cut layer using Spellbinders Floral Ovals, die cut layer using Spellbinders Opulent Ovals. Tip – cut everything first, then stack. Position ribbon, bow and flowers on correct layer, after everything is situated, then glue!
