Hello crafty readers! This is Design Team member Crystal Komara here with you today. I’m excited to be featuring an exciting new product today called Rose Bunch, it is part of the new Contouring Layer Die release from Birch Press Design. This is a 3-piece layering die set that will create beautiful, intricate, realistic looking flowers.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. Using the Pinpoint Radial Plate, I die cut the first layer from black cardstock. Using the Rose Bunch Contour Layering die, I die cut the three layers from three different colored yellow cardstock using the Sunny Orange 6 x 6″ paper pad. Below I’ll show more details photos from how I die cut the layers:
I’ll be completely honest that while lining up the layers was easy enough, it did take a good amount of time and a fair amount of patience. Admittedly, patience in intricate things is NOT my strong suit, so it was a learning curve for me. *I also found that a fine-tip liquid glue held the layers together well, although my tip for the future would be to use adhesive lined cardstock for easier assembly.
Using the Dainty Rose and Leaves Contour die, I die cut the leaves only using the Lush Green 6 x 6″ paper pack. I adhered the leaves behind the roses. I adhered the roses to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment “thinking of you” in yellow ink on a piece of white cardstock. The sentiment is from the Contempo Greetings stamp set and it also has a coordinating die. I adhered the sentiment using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension.
These new Contour Layering dies are SOoooo gorgeous! With this rose bunch you could create floral designs in every color of the rainbow leaving you with so many options. Flowery cards are also great for nearly e-v-e-r-y occasion!
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
