Red Flowers

Today I have designed a black and white card with a red focal point.  The flower dies I used are the Cheery Lynn "Pulmeria" (B 134).  Below is a picture of the die. This is not a new Cherry Lynn die but a very fun die to use.  Below I will show you how I created these flowers.

Cheery Lynn Plumeria B 134

The Plumeria flower die has five petals on it.  Each petal die cuts separately so you can create your flower. This die is very useful to create different types of flowers because each petal cuts separately.  You can create different flowers according to how many petals or layers you would like to add.  I love products you can use in many different ways. Each  of these petals has a small hole in it so you an build your flower using a brad, but I like to glue the petals to keep them in place.   I used the "Punch Bunch" small snowflake for my base. This snowflake has six points.  I wanted to create three flowers, so I die cut one extra flower to use an extra petal on each flower.  Above you an see the pieces I used.  The stamens are the Punch Bunch Large and Medium "Sparkle".  I used one large and two medium for each flower.  To make them "frilly" I cut down each point, then shaped them on the Black Flower Mat then stacked them.  The Flower petals and leaves were also shaped on the black mat with tools from the Flower Tool Kit.  

I used a piece of old design paper I had for the background.  The pretty rectangle doily under the flowers is the Marianne Design (LR0- 117) die.  The Heart is the Cherry Lynn "Two of Hearts" (DL 128) die.  The corners were die cut using one of the Marianne Designs (LR0143) corners.  To complete the card a black and white bow was added.
