pretty cottage rose bouquet
When I first used the Cottage Flowers die set, I noticed a large die that cut out all of the pieces for a flower bouquet – flowers, stems and leaves. I wondered how I might use this die. This die will cut out all of these images on one of the papers from the Abigail Rose 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper, but I wanted to create something different using this die. This is what I came up with. I used the negative of the die cut to help arrange the pieces onto an Evening Evergreen panel. I think the Pale Papaya flowers and Soft Succulent stems and leaves create a soft, pretty bouquet against this dark background!
Each of the flowers, stems and leaves were colored using Stampin’ Blends. On the flowers, I used the darker shade of Pale Papaya to give the suggestion of the rose “bowl” and petal edges for a soft look. A sentiment stamped in Evening Evergreen on a Pale Papaya label was added, along with a strip of Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon and a few Heart Pearls…giving this card a romantic look.
Another use of this large bouquet die is to cut out all of the pieces and arrange any way you’d like! This one die in the Cottage Flowers Die set has multiple uses!
