Magnolia Card

Today I have designed a card around the flower behind the bird in the design paper.  This is a 5.5" x 6" card.  I used a sheet of the design paper from the new Pinkpaislee "Spring Jubilee" paper pack.  The flower behind the bird is a magnolia.  I love to find design paper with a flower or flowers and try and create the same flower using punches or dies.

The magnolia was created using the PunchBunch "Medium Pear" and "Large Sun" punches. There are a lot of the large punched suns glued together to create the stamen.  The circle frame behind the flower was created by using the largest Spellbinders "Tear  Drop Circle" die and the third largest Spellbinders "Petite Circle Large" die.

To die cut a perfect frame, I taped the two dies down on the card stock, ran it through to cut it out, then again to emboss the frame.  For the background of this frame I die cut the Cheery Lynn "French Lattice Large Frame" (FRM133) and centered the frame over it to get the die cut design just the way I wanted it, then snipped off the outer part of the lattice frame and glued it to the back of the round frame.  

The Magnolia was glued to the frame and Marianne Design embellishments (LR0 157) and (LR0 192) were tucked under it.  The leaves are from a very old stamp (no name) but you can use any die cut leaves.  To finish the card, I used Rangers "Bisque" Liquid Pearls around the Spellbinders "Tear Drop Circle" frame.  

All these products can be purchased from Joan's Gardens.
