Hello, crafty friends.
This is Shannon Lee Smith with TLC Designs.
Today I have a card with 3D flowers made from the Rosie Sentiment Die Set.
First, I cut the card front layers from white, pink and a floral pattern from the Something Bloomed paper pack. I glue them all together with acrylic matte medium.
To create the flower, I start by cutting one of each of the 3 sizes of the flower petals for each blossom I want to create. A total of (6) for the front of this card. I cut them out of Susan’s Garden Specialty Cardstock from Spellbinders. You could also use the specialty cardstock made by Heartfelt creations. It’s best to use these types of cardstocks when creating 3D flowers.
After die cutting the flower layers, I ink them up with 2 similar colors of Distress Oxide. The lightest color is used as the main color. Then I use the darker color to distress the edges of the petals.
After I ink them up, I use a stylus and some water to loosen the papers fibers and shape them the way I would like them to appear. I finish by layering the petals, starting with the larges set and finishing with the smaller. I use the stylus to push the centers down into the shaping cushion I’m using to shape the petals. I then glue each of the layers together.
I also cut (6) leaves, color them with copic markers and shape them with the stylus and shaping cushion. When the leaves are complete, I create a cluster of leaves and flower blossoms on (2) opposing corners of the front of the card. I adhere the leaves and flowers to the card front with hot glue. I then add 3 thin strips of cardstock that I’ve colored with green copic markers to match the leaves. I use a pen to coil them like vines. I poke them into the hot glue that is holding the leaves and flower blossoms to the card front. I finish the clusters by spraying them with white gold pearl powder to give them a nice shimmer.
To complete the card, I add a die cut several “hello” sentiments from the Rosie Sentiment Die Set. I layer them and adhere them together with acrylic matte medium after coloring them with copic markers so they will match the patterned paper I’ve used. I adhere the stack of hello die cuts to the front of the card. I then cover the hello die cuts with Glossy Accents to add to the shine on the front of the card.
I just love the Rosie Sentiment Die Set. It is chalked full of dies including elements to create 3D flowers, leaves, and several layers for your card front… and I can’t forget the sentiments that are in the cutest font ever. If you’re interested in picking up the Rosie Sentiment Die Set, it is currently on sale at TLC Designs store for $12.99. This is such a great price for all that you get.
