Flower Background by request

Good Evening!

I have a new set of background files for you today, this time it is my flower design. I first created this design for the flower pennant and used it for the 3 flower envelopes too, quite a few requests followed asking for it to be made into a background panel so here it is! I hope it will be a welcome addition to your cut file collections :)

Card Base: I cut my flower background fractionally smaller than the front of my card in the same colour and glued into place to imitate an embossed look except with a sharper/crisper edge. Instead of placing my sentiment onto my card front I decided to add it inside the card and create a window in the front, I cut the opening with a spellbinders die and used 2 dies to cut a narrow frame to add a neat finish to the edge of the circle window.

Flowers: I used the flower and leaf cut file for my vellum flowers, I ran an embossing stylus over the back of the petals to add some shape then popped some sparkles into the middles. I wanted my sparkles to be a deeper shade of purple so I dabbed them with the chisel end of a copic marker and they took the colour fantastically so I’ll definitely do that again!

    Oh Bird!
    Your supply of talent always amazes me. I sure wish I had just a teeny tiny bit of yours, and then we both would be happy. You would still have way more than most people have left.
    Thanks so much sharing your awesome talent with all of us.

    Your designs are so amazing and your generosity is beyond amazing! Thank you so very much. I have just recently gotten a Silhouette Cameo and I downloaded this design today and was thrilled that I could actually cut it out. This is the most intricate image that I have tried so far. It’s exciting to think about all the beautiful things I can make.
