I cut 7 corners from White Cardstock using the Cheery Lyn Lace Corner Die E. Score down the center to make it easier to fold. Sponge all of the edges in turquoise. Fold in ˝ on the score line. Color will be on the inside. Fold the outside edges toward the outside. Punch a ˝” circle and sponge in turquoise and place a dot in the center. Using hot glue, only on tip of the folded petals, glue on opposite sides of the center dot. Now, center 2 petals on each side of the first 2 petals. Save the extra petals for the top left corner. You can find a tutorial for this much of the flower at Cheery Lynn Designs.
The following are the changes I made to the flower: I added 9 stamens to the flower. Roll the stamens in the Tsukineko Essentials Glue Pad and dipped them in Turquoise Glitter. Let dry.
Make the center flower out of “Frost Metallic Vellum” using Rose Creations Dies #1 & #2; cut 2 petals of each size for each the flower. Use the Flower Forming Toolkit to form the flowers, then, roll each petal around a round nose plier. Hot glue 2 of each size petal to form the flower. Slip 3 stamens in the center hole of the flower and hot glue in place. Sponge flower edges with Turquoise. Hot glue the flower to the center of the Lace. Hot glue the 6 remaining stamen under the center flower between the lace petals. Repeat the center flower 3 times. Set aside.
For the card base score an 8 ˝” x 11” Naturals Ivory Cardstock at 5 ˝”. Lay Grand Labels 23 Die #4 so the top edge of the die is outside of the fold so the card stays together when you cut it. Before removing from the die add the turquoise using a blending tool. Cut Grand Labels 23 Dies # 1 & #2. Before removing from the die add the turquoise using a blending tool. Use a blending tool to add Choc. Chip to the edges of all the pieces.
Use the Cuttlebug Chic Circle Embossing Plus Folder for the center. Use your blending tool to add color to the raised embossed areas. I also used a colored pencil to make the turquoise darker. Die cut 1 each from Cheery Lyn Fanciful Flourish-Large & Mini and Cheery Lyn Olive Branches from Apple Crush Cardstock.
Add the extra Lace corner to the upper left corner of the card. Add 1 flower center to it.
Add the last 2 flowers to the floral spray. Add Blue jewels as shown.
