Krafty Girls DT Challenge # 25 - Flowers

Hey ladies! I'm here with a post for the Krafty Girls Design Team Challenge #25 - Flowers! Who doesn't love flowers? Make sure you head on over to this post to see all the other beautiful creations the girls made. Then, make up a project with flowers and link it up.

Here is the card I created for the challenge:

I used Silhouette Studio to design the card, then I sent it all to my Cameo to cut out. This is a quick and easy card to cut and put together, but it gives you a beautiful wow factor. I wanted to go with a white base and background, so the flowers would pop. 

You can find the Background 12 as a free personal use cut file, here. All I did was make it a compound path so that it would cut the pieces out of the middle.

The rose is in the Sil Store, #58803. For this I didn't do any editing other than change the size. The base layer will be green, the second layer light pink, the third a darker pink, and finally the last layer is the same lighter pink you used for the second layer.

Here is what I mean:

Base layer
Second layer
Third layer
Fourth layer

Now that all your pieces are cut, it's time to assemble. You can either adhere the background flat to the card, or use small pieces of dimensional adhesive to add some more interest, like I did. Just make sure you can't see the adhesive from the front, and be sure to put a couple pieces in the middle so it doesn't sink.

Next you're going to layer your flower in the order of the pictures above. Glue it to the card, and if desired, add a bow. You can also put a sentiment on this card, but I thought it looked nice without one.

Hope you enjoyed this post, and be sure to check the Krafty Girls page for all the wonderful projects. Until next time, happy crafting! :)
