Good Wednesday morning and welcome to the CLASSroom. We’re showcasing Impression Obsession products this week and I’m sharing some of my favorite dies and the steps to make a pretty clean and simple framed flower garden. I used the Impression Obsession Ornate Square Frame, Bouquet set and Leaves and Stems.
Start by creating a string of rolled double stick tape to attach the two frames together by placing a strip down on a clean surface.
Roll the strip with your finger.
Apply the rolled double stick tape to the back of the frame.
Attach the ornate frame to the square frame base.
Die cut the foliage using Bazzill Easter Grass and multiple colors of flowers using Sour Grape, Sour Lemon, Robin’s Egg and Taylored Expressions Cupcake cardstock.
Form each flower section by placing face down on the molding pad, pressing down with the smaller end of the stylus from the Garden Tool Kit and rolling to create a round cup.
Turn the flower face up on the molding pad and press down in the center using the small tipped stylus.
Attach the flower sections together using glossy accents. I found it lots easier to attach flower sections together while sitting them in place on the molding pad. It only took me five years of making paper flowers to figure that out. LOL!
Apply double stick tape to the back bottom section of the frame.
Attach the foliage sections to the double stick tape on the back of the frame.
Trim off the excess foliage stems once each section is secure in place.
Secure the larger flowers to the foliage using glossy accents. Fill in the lower sections of the foliage by adding a few foliage stems and tulips.
Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach it to the 4.50” square card base.
I hope you enjoyed my framed bouquet tutorial. I love the soft colors of the flowers and foliage against the all white decorative frame and card base.
