# Borders # Build A Flower

I love Pansies...

 This week for Cheery Lynn Designs, I have been playing around with the Build A Flower Series once again, and seeing what flowers can be produced using the die system. 
One of my favourite flowers is 'the pansy', they look so beautiful and are available in so many colours these days.  To create the pandy, I used the BAF #2  (flower petals and leaves) teamed with the Embellishment #2 (base, stem, and centre fronds).  The trick to getting the petals right is to use a wooden popsicle stick to manipulate the flower petals.  Using a popsicle stick allows for the paper to stretch, and shape beautifully.  I also used this method on the leaves on the BAF #2 - care needs to be taken not to tear the paper, just gently manipulate and stretch.
 
Detail was added using a Pigma Micron Pen, and some lightly applied Star Dust Stickles.
The card itself, I discovered on a blog. Sadly, I cannot read the imprint (German I think) to give credit of the instructions - sorry!  It is a card which would be perfect for including photographs or a personal letter 'in' the actual card, as it opens up to different areas. 
 
Circle Classic and Circle Scalloped for the shaped areas, and teamed with corners using the Lace Corner Deco B.  Mentioning 'corners' - this weeks challenge on the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge Blog, is 'Corner Adorners'! 
 Another section opens, that has been decorated with the Lace Edger.  The sentiment sits upon the Scandinavian Hearts, more Circles, and then the very pretty Sentiment Frame #2.         
 I adore this sentiment, so true!
 Well that is my creation for this week...
Till Next Week...

Supplies:
Other: AC Cardstock, Helmar Adhesives, Kaisercraft Bling, Stardust Stickles, Whimsey 
Sentiment Stamp, Black Pigma Pen.

  1. Sandie,
    Wonderful job on your pansies, they look GREAT, I have to give them a go later, I too love that flower,my grandmother was big on pressing those and saving them and then when they were dry she would put them on black velvet and frame them, they were always so pretty and we could enjoy them year round.
    Thanks for the memory.
    Hugs

    How did you do your flower, did you use an embossing tool as well as your stick to get the petals so perfect?
    A tutuorial on that flower would be great!!! :)
    Just a thought.

  9. Sandie,
    Thanks for getting back to me, love all the projects you do, if you do the tutorial on the pansies and think of it, at the time, would you drop me a quick note and let me know? I am having some issues with some health issues right now and don't always get the time I would like to be on the computer and would hate to miss that, as I loved those flowers.
    Thanks in advance and if you can't I also understand.
    hugs
    Donna
