Shaped Flower Birthday Card
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone.  This is an exciting day.  A NEW MEMORY BOX RELEASE IS HERE!  There are so many beautiful flower and leaf dies in this release.  So many smaller stacked dies that are perfect for shaping. I used Layered Impatiens to create a birthday card.  



Die cut the flowers from a light and medium yellow/orange card from the Sunny Orange paper pad.  Take a slightly darker marker and flick from the center out along the cuts in the dies.  I used Copic YR02.  I used 2 techniques to shape the flowers. The first technique is to create the cupped center.   On the smallest die cut, see a small ball stylist, on a foam pad, and pull from the edge of the petal towards the center for each petal.  Then push the ball stylist in the center to form the cup.  The 2nd technique is to form the petals under.  Use a ball stylist the same size as the sections of the petals.  Turn the die cuts upside down and pull from the edge of the petal to the center.  Then turn the flower die cut over and take a small ball stylist and push in the center.  Glue same size flowers, one from each color, on top of each other.  Use the small ball stylist to push in the center as the glue is drying.   For the largest flower glue a small cupped flower.  For the smallest flower only glue 1 layer of open petals and glue a cupped flower in the center using the ball stylist to push in the center as the glue dries.  


Leaf Frame:

Die cut the Exquisite Leaf Frame out of green card from the Lush Green paper pad.  Cut small 1/8" strips to layer under the frame 2 times.  



Cut the bluish/green Vintage Pastel Mirror Pad to and A2 size panel and adhere to a cream color A2 card.  Adhere the the Exquisite Leaf Frame die to the card.  Glue the flowers around the leafs.  Die cut the new Happy Birthday Posh Script bottom from the same bluish/green Vintage Pastel Mirror paper and the top from the lightest yellow/orange paper from the Sunny Orange pad.  Adhere together then on the card in the center of the frame.  I just had an after thought to add some Fairy Drops around the sentiment.  







pretty leafy frame, pretty colors for your flowers!
