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!
