It is so fun to create realistic flowers using Susan's Garden Notes die sets. Today I created a bouquet of white Shasta Daisies with Forget-Me-Nots. Here is how the card was designed.
Use a 6 inch square card. Cover the front with a piece of design paper from the ModaScrap Sweet Vintage Rose design paper pack.
Use the Garden Notes Pottery Pitcher die set to create the vase. Use a piece of clear acetate with Clear Double Sided Adhesive attached to one side. Die cut the pitcher. Die cut a piece of white card stock that has Clear Double Sided Adhesive on the top. Sprinkle Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter on the bottom portion of the adhesive. This will give a little sparkle to resemble water in the vase. Use the Garden Notes Bouquet and Stems die set to die cut green stems. . Attach the stems so they show through the lower portion of the pitcher. Pull the adhesive covering off the white die cut pitcher and attach the acetate pitcher over the white die cut pitcher. Attach the Pitcher at the bottom of the card, as shown.
Use the Garden Notes Forget-Me-Not die set and die cut four stems and enough flowers to cover them. Attach these flowers in the pitcher, leaving room for the daisies.
Use the Garden Notes Shasta Daisy die set and create 6 daisies. Shape the petals and leaves using the Flower Tool Kit. Add yellow pollen in the center of each flower. Arrange the daisies as shown to create a full bouquet.
Use the Dancing Butterfly set and die cut one butterfly using Dusky Sky Soft Finish Cardstock. Attach the butterfly in the upper left corner.
Use the Sentiments 2 - Just Because die set and matching dies for the sentiment. Attach to the lower right side of the card.
I think these pretty flowers will help someone to feel better.
