This week's Friday Die Day features Stack and Fan Flowers,
a die set designed by Becca Feeken who has her own line with Spellbinders
called Amazing Paper Grace.
These dies enable you to create lovely 3D flowers.
The die measurements are approximately:
Petal 1: 2.70 x 1.50 inches
Petal 2: 2.50 x 1.30 inches
Petal 3: 1.90 x 1.05 inches
Petal 4: 1.75 x 0.90 inches
Petal 5: 1.40 x 0.75 inches
Petal 6: 1.30 x 0.70 inches
Small Leaves: 0.90 x 1.8 inches
Large Leaves: 1.10 x 2.25 inches
This is how they look cut/embossed.
I've chosen to use the middle sized scallop edge petal, cut/embossed 9
and also cut 9 from patterned vellum to overlay.
To create the flower you insert a brad through the end hole and begin to stack.
Keep stacking until you have each one inserted.
Then flip the flower over, fold/loop the petal gently and insert the second hole over the brad.
Tip: select a brad with a nice long stem!
The back of the flower.
My card base is matted ivory, gold and some of the matching vellum.
The stamp is Lawn Fawn - Scripty Sayings.
Then just a case of placing the flower and a couple of the
very pretty filigree leaves cut from matching gold card.
Some close up pics.
They are fun to do and not just limited to card,
try using felt and fabric for a different look.
Take care friends - wishing you all a great weekend.
