Sweet Pea Flowers.
by Pam Simpson

Hello Poppystamp friends,  beautiful "Sweet Pea Flowers" on this card today, this latest collection  from Poppystamps sure has some gorgeous floral dies.

This Sweet Pea die is large, you could easily use just one die cut on your card, me being me had to use two!.

This is how I created my flower, but they look just as pretty flat for posting.

I have cut in green card for my flower outline,  Next using doubled up heavy paper, I embossed in my die cutting machine, this leaves me whole flowers.

Cut & emboss

Next. remove from your die and I coloured as shown using pro markers, you can use any colouring medium .. I made sure I coloured in pink on the inside as well as outside.

Next I adhered the green outline flower shape to this embossed/coloured flower, cut around the outline with scissors. to keep my centre flowers raised I used a blob of hot glue! watch your fingers! 

Coloured

I love a shine and sparkle on flowers, I have used "Wink Of Stellar" Clear Glitter Pen,  Nova Jewell Drops, Hessian bow.. peeking though my oval shape, in pink I have used Tulisa Collage die. Pink tiny frame cut with Memory Box.. Open Studio..  Stitched Oval Layers..

Main card shape in oval, Top opener card, cut with my dies from my stash.  with Poppystamps "Thank  You Streamer" die.

Tip.. to make you card stand and NO wobble! I take from the back card only around 1/2" from the bottom of my card, I also do this with Circle cards.
