Build A Flower Magnolia Tutorial

As I promised yesterday, I have another tutorial for you using the Cheery Lynn "Build A Flower #3" dies.   This is a magnolia I created using the largest "Pear" shaped petal for the flower and the  largest "Sun" shape from the Build A Flower #2 Embellishments" die.   The flower petals were die cut using white card stock then light gray ink was sponged on the edges of each petal and down in the center (pointed end).  The petals were shaped with the tools from the Flower Tool Kit on the black shaping mat.  Two rows were made using the "Base" pieces from the BAF #1 Embellishment dies then layered.  For the center of the flower, I die cut a bunch of the largest "Sun" shape and cupped each one with the largest stylus; there are probably 8 to 10 suns.  Glue (Crafter's Pick) was spread on the top of each sun and they were layered and cupped up into a cone shape.  You need to add glue to the whole top of each one so they will stick together.   On the very bottom row, I used a maroon marker to add some color to the tips of each point on the "sun" and glued it around the bottom.  The leaves are from an older Heartfelt Creations stamp set.

To create a card for this pretty flower, I used the eBosser "Dainty Dots" embossing folder for the background.   My favorite embossing/die cutting machine is the "eBosser" and the embossing folders for this machine come in 8 1/2" x 11" size.  I cut the sheet down to fit my card.  A piece of gray card stock was added to the top and the new Spellbinders "Flourish Trim" was attached. I use "Glue N Seal" to glue down intricate dies like this.   The pretty die cut behind the magnolia is from the Heartfelt Creations "Timeless Amour" die set.   Along the bottom I added the Cheery Lynn "Anastasia Border".  

I hope these tutorials help you.  It is so rewarding to take card stock and create such realistic flowers. I hope you will give it a try.

What I didn't know was how I would get all of what I wanted in just six hours. Another thing you'll nеed iѕ sοme
strength tο endure, becausе there's a good chance you'll be your оwn рroduсer
foг the ѕhow or perhaps the best pгоducer the
ѕhοw hаs. Additionally, some nеw attributes
make it even eаsieг to make гadiо buttonѕ ԁo eхactly what you ωаnt them to do.
