Susan's Garden Coreopsis

 Don't these flowers look like they were just picked out of the flower garden!  I love how  Susan's Garden flower dies help us create  such realistic flowers.  I used her Coreopsis  dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs to decorate the lid of a 4" square box.  I plan to put a sentiment down in the lower right corner when I am ready to use it.



The flower petals were die cut using yellow card stock.  A red marker was used to color the base of each petal.  The stamen was cut using both yellow and red card stock.  Two red stamens were rolled together (one on top of the other) then one yellow stamen was rolled on the outside of the red ones.  I cut down the center of each stamen with scissors to make them frilly, before assembly.  I used Susan's Yellow Pollen on the tips of all the yellow stamens and just a little on the tips of the red.


Here is a picture of the entire box.  I decorated the bottom of the box with stickers from Elizabeth Craft Designs.
