Today I created six macroon Pom Pom Dahlias using Susan's Garden Notes Dahlia die set from Tonic Studios. You can click on the link below that says "Image Available Soon" to purchase any of Susan's Garden Club die sets. I created one card using three of the dahlias using a beautiful background die from Tonic Studios. I wasn't sure if I liked the arrangement, so using the other three flowers, created a second card with the same die cut background. I decided to post both cards.
The card stock used for the background is the Tonic Speciality Luxury Embossed Card -Cinnamon Silk. I placed the Tonic Vibrant Damask die onto a piece of the Tonic Cinnamon Silk card stock so it die cut toward the top. Behind the die cut design I added a piece of Tonic Ivory card stock then layered onto a piece of Tonic Maroon Red card stock. When I added the die cut piece, I used the Nuvo Deluxe adhesive and added small dots of glue around on the die cut design so it would lay nice and flat.
The Beauty Berry Bush branches were die cut using white card stock and Nuvo Safari Green Ink was sponged on both the front and back of the die cuts. Nuvo Plum Pudding Crystal Drops were used for the berries. The branches were shaped and placed on the card then three of the Maroon Pom Pom Dahlias were added. I like to create my flowers right on the Tonic Glass Mat. I start with the bottom petals and keep adding layers. Some of the glue will stick to the glass mat and holds the flower in place until all layers are added. I used the scrapper in the Tim Holtz Media Tool Set to gently remove the flower. The glass mat cleans up really easily by just using a baby wipe.
