Hi crafty friends! This relatively new 3D Marigold Flower die from Cheery Lynn is very cool and I've been itching to use it again. The die only partially cuts out the largest flower (in the three die set) so it's perfect to accent with colored paper behind. It can also be easily cut out with a few snips. You can see how I used it like that in my last marigold card HERE. It's a three piece die set and the other two smaller flowers can be used to layer on top like I did here or to make individual smaller flowers like I did in my previous card. It's an incredibly versatile and beautiful flower - can you see all the gorgeous veining detail?
I began with an A2 card base and then layered pink, dark gray, patterned pink and then another piece of white on top. The You Are Awesome sentiment was cut four times and layered using the background papers. The multiple layers add interest and the sentiment sits raised above the card top. I cut the marigold and then used a stylus and molding mat on the petals to get them to curl. I wanted enough curl to be able to see the colored paper behind for contrast.
