Die Cut Flower

Hello!

Today i have a card i made for the Runway Inspired Challenge. This is the inspiration photo:


I couldn;t find any paper that matched the green/yellow of the pants, so i made my own. I started with some yellow pattern paper and then i stamped a pattern over the paper with green ink. I used a stamp from The Alley Way Stamp - Bitty Border set. I think with the yellow paper and green ink, i got close to the color in the photo.

Next i used a flower die cut and cut the flower from my stamped pattern paper. I saved all the little pieces to use later. I adhered the rectangle (with the flower shape cut out of it) to my cardbase.

Next i wanted to re-make my flower with the little pieces you usually through away. I placed the flower outline back into the space i die cut. Then i added all the pieces back with foam dot. Its like a puzzle fitting each piece into the flower. When they are all added, i carefully pulled up the flower outline.

To finish i added a glitter gem to the flower center and stamped my sentiment, also from the Bitty Border set.
