Yes..it's here..it's Friday and it's Die-Day!
Upon Lydia's request I've gone all Daisy! I'm featuring Daisy Flower Topper.
I know I've used these on cards and projects frequently but I thought it would be nice to show
you how I create these floral lovelies.
You receive four dies with this set, three petals and one flower middle.
This is how they look cut/embossed.
Stencilled through with distress ink - so much more striking.
You will see from this image I also like to use some distress ink around the edges of the petals too, it softens them a little.
My method of creating a dimensional daisy is to take the largest petal layer and tweak the outer leaves downwards, for the other petal layers I tweak the inner leaves upwards.
It looks a little clearer here, the largest petal layer works as a platform.
Plenty of foam pads (much like the Aster Flower Topper featured last Friday).
You can flatten the flower a little bit, purely your choice.
The finished flower with middle added.
Equally as pretty using patterned paper.
And extra nice if you use other mediums, here I've used felt.
It cuts like butter in the Grand Calibur® - if you haven't tried cutting felt please do...but it is addictive!
I've decided I'm going to add a button to the middle and sew on a little brooch pin,
a quick and easy gift.
As always, please mention/email me any die requests for Friday Die-Day.
Before I go, I want to say a special hello to Ita, it is her daughter's wedding today, she has been working so hard on making all the invitations and more - wishing you a wonderful day and sunny weather!
Take care friends.
