Always, Forever

Hi friends!  I thought I would sneak in today and share with you a little bit of the paper flowers I have been making lately using some Elizabeth Craft Designs supplies.

I am seriously in love with the Susan’s Garden dies that allow you to make such realistic looking flower.  Today I am playing around with the new Shasta Daisy die set from Susan’s Garden.

Step 1:  Trim a 12″x6″ piece of Dusky Sky Soft Finish Cardstock and die cut an oval out using the new Frame It/Stitched Ovals die set.  Trim up a piece of 85lb White Soft Finish Cardstock to fit into the oval hole.

Step 2:  Trim a piece of Wood Effects printed paper to 6″x6″.  Die cut a square opening using the new Frame It/Stitched Squares using the largest die.
