Punch and dies used for flower
I have two requests to explain how I made the punched daisy card I posted here. I thought I would just post a similar card and answer questions from my readers. One of the questions was what did I use for the small white squares. It is a Cuttlebug die that I bought when the Cuttlebug first came out. I don't know if they still sell it. After cutting out the squares I embossed them with the Cuttlebug Dotted Swiss embossing folder.
The second person asked which punch I used for the petals of the flower. It is the smallest of the SU oval punches. I would have used a Nestie but they are not small enough for the size flower I wanted. I cut out a small "v" shape in the end of each petal and sponged the petals with a darker ink using sponge daubers. The petals are layered onto the center of the flower. The center of the flower was cut with a small scalloped oval die from Nestabilities. In order to make the center look like it had seeds, I used a stylist to emboss a lot of dots on one end. The flower is attached with a glue dot and the leaves tucked under using a little adhesive.
I hope this info helps. Thanks for stopping by.
