Hello friends,

Its Saturday time and I am here with another bouquet of flowers for you using CottageCutz dies. CottageCutz has some most amazing flower dies and I simply love their 3D flower dies. In my previous posts , I have shown many ways as to how to use these dies beautiful. Today, I am here with one of my most favourite flowers--DAISY.
The CottageCutz 3D flower #3 die can give you most beautiful daisy flowers and they are so simple to make.
Here I have a very simple card that highlights the beauty of these flowers. Please follow the step by step pictures on making of the flowers.


Here is the step by step instruction for creating the flower

 Cut out die cuts from white card stock with the CottageCutz 3D flower #3 

       Colour the centre of each flower using the Archival Pink Peony ink

        Shape the flower by placing a stylus in the centre of each petal and by  pinching.

        Layer the flowers together-four layers in one flowers and cup deeply in the middle to make the  flowers stand upright. Add pollens in the centre.

            Cut out leaves from CottageCutz Leafy Foliage die and colour Archival leaf green ink

Cut a card base measuring 8.25 inches by 4 inches. Cut a mat layer 8 inches by 3.75 inches and adhere to the card front. Cut a pattern paper 7.75 inches by 3.5 inches and distress the edges. Add texture using modelling paste and stencil.

Arrange the flowers, leaves and CottageCutz tea time doily as shown. Add sequins to the card.
