Layering Flowers

MarchChallenge_Candy_Spiegel3This month, Elizabeth Craft Designs asked us to create something with flowers for the Designers’ Challenge.

I decided to create some layers of flowers, but didn’t want it to get too bulky, so I started with a stencil.


I made my own stencil by positioning some of the Elizabeth Craft Designs floral dies on a piece of acetate (clear plastic) and running it through my die-cutting machine.


Then, I used the stencil and a bit of Distress Ink to color my background paper.


I used the same flower dies to cut out Shimmer Sheetz and then used the coordinating die with Adhesive Velvet. I also cut the sentiment out of Adhesive Velvet because it is so easy — no glue needed on those tiny letters!

As a final touch, I added some Glitter Dot Peel-Offs on the stenciled flowers and then mounted it to a card base.

What do you think?
