Hello! With Valentines around the corner, I thought I would work on a romantic layout. Todays layout features borders and flowers.
I started by dressing up the layout with piecing the Anastasia Border around the background paper. I layered the Lace Light Deco Border atop the Tiffany Border. I like to slightly roll the bottom of the borders to give a bit of texture, and make them look more like real lace. After adding some fussy cutting, I tucked the English Tea Party Doily in a couple places.
I cut the Sweet Williams flower from denim scraps.
After cutting the petals of the Large Rose, Miniatuare Rose, Frangipani with Leaves, and Stacker flower #5, I spritzed each set of petal with Glimmer Mist then scrunched each petal between my fingers and set them aside to dry. Once dry, I assembled the flowers. Distressing the petals gives the flowers a completely different look.
Before assembling the Stacker Flower #5, I staggered the flower and shortened some of the petals but cutting the die piece with the Scalloped Window Stackers.
I also added Cuties #1 to the bouquet. Once all flower were dispersed, I tucked in pieces of the Fanciful Flourish, Olive Branches, along with leaves from Stacker Flowers #1 and Dimensional Small Leaves #2. To complete the romantic feel of the layout, I added the Small Lace Butterfly…isn’t this die so delicate and beautiful?!
