I began by stenciling the background with white molding paste and the Doily Stencil by Paige Evans. Then, using a soft brush, and Distress Oxides, I added some very light colour overtop. If you weren’t able to get this stencil while it was available, you can cut one out of scrap cardstock with Paige’s Doily Cut File. Resize it to 6″ x 6″.
Then, using 3M Spray Glue, I attached an offset of the cut file I made from Vellum in the Silhouette Design Studio. This added the extra structure I wanted to embellish with flowers on top.
I wanted a bouquet of various flowers in several shapes, sizes and colours. Paige has so many to choose from, including this awesome group of 10 rolled flowers in a Bundle. Here are Paige’s flower cut files I’ve used on my project:
- blue flowers are this Rolled Flower Cut File with Paper 18
- peach flowers are this Layered Flower Cut File with Paper 2
- pink flowers are this Layered Flower Cut File with Paper 3 and Paper 1
- green leaves are this Leaves Cut File with Paper 24
- small yellow roses are this Rolled Flower Cut File with Paper 8
The Embossed Puffy Stickers made pretty and whimsical flower centers. I also added some around the layout along with Chipboard butterflies and a tiny peach heart from the Layered Stickers set. Don’t you love the gold foil accents! The generous 8 Page Sticker Book has many to choose from. I tucked in a couple of the gold twigs for a little extra sparkle.
My photo is matted with the super pretty gold Foiled Floral Transparency. I drew the colours for all the flowers from it. I love when you can repeat an element using different things in the collection, in this case gold accents.
Did you notice the scalloped background paper?
I cut a sheet of white AC Cardstock on my Cameo Silhouette 3 using a cut file I designed and offer to you free for personal use. Use this Link to download it. If you’d like the SVG, drop me an email at Kellymadeit.firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll be happy to send it along. I thought the chain stitching looked pretty all around, like icing on a cake.
Hope you found an idea or two here for your own pretty projects!
See you again soon ! Hugs, Kelly 💗
