Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge 151 - Die Cut Flowers
First day of fall and I wanted to do an autumn card for my sister. I had a lot of fun creating these leaves out of my Cherry Lynn leaf die as well as McGill punch for the maple leaf. First I cut them out and applied the fall colors to the leaves. Second, I pressed the leaves on a Versa Mark pad before adding clear embossing powder. After using the hot embossing gun, I would shape the leaves again. The leaves on the left top is from Cherry Lynn Flourish Leaf Strip B179..
The flowers were made using the Cherry Lynn Shasta Daisy B310. I used autumn gold glitter paper to cut out the daisies. I applied rustic colors to the edge and then pressed the flowers on a Versa mark pad before adding clear embossing powder. I found out that if I didn't use the embossing powder on this paper, the ink would easy rub off. I colored the center of the flower using a green Copic Marker. The center of the flower is the circle from the Cherry Lynn Maron's Wedding Garland DL218. I cut the centers out and rubbed the center with Versa mark and added a brown and red embossing powder.
The branches in the flower arrangement is the Memory Box Woodland branch die.
I used the Marianne Design LR0279 for the center frame of the picture from Wee Stamps colored with Copic markers. The saying "Thinking of You" is a Marianne Collectable stamp as well as the Marianne Collectable die to cut for the label below. The outer frame is a Spellbinder decorative frame.
