Happy flowers with CottageCutz dies

Hello ,

Its Anita here and I am back with my Friday post.
Happiness is such a subjective emotion. many derive happiness by spending time with their loved ones while some become happy by being with their pets.  know some people are happy when alone while some like noisy crowd to be happy.
I find happiness in flowers. And I am happy when my flowers bloom the way I want them to. And the CottageCutz 3D flowers dies are most amazing ones that make my flowers look happy.

There is a wide variety of flower and leaf dies ranging from tiny flowers to mega sized blooms.

For my card here, I have created some spring flowers and I loved the purple hue . Do follow the step by step instructions for making these flowers.
Here is my card.

 Instructions for making flowers

Cut the die cuts from white card stock using CottageCutz dies

Cut out 2  frames each for the card base and stick them together.

Colour the flowers and leaves using distress inks and put tiny dots with black pen. Mist the flowers with water.


Shape using an embossing tool on a foam mat as shown

Make pollen centres as shown

Add wire pollens to filler flowers

Carefully make small cut marks in between the petals. This will enable the pollen centres to pass through.



Complete all the flowers and lay them out on the card.




the finished card measures 7"/ 7". It has two mat layers of 6.5/6.5" and 6"/6". The edges have been distressed. Cut 4 strips from pattern paper measuring 1"/ 7" and swipe walnut stain ink to give that distressed look. Adhere on card front as shown.
