Watch this video to learn different shaping techniques using the dogwood flowers.

Instructions: Create a top-fold 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" card with 120 lb. white card stock. Cut base layer from a rich chocolate color at 5 1/4" x 5 1/4". Select the designer paper from the Flowering Dogwood Collection and cut at 5" x 5". Adhere the layers with double sided tape.

Stamp the small dogwood flowers with Memento Espresso Ink on X-Press It or any copic comparable paper. Color the small flowers with the following Copic color combo - E51, E53, E44, Y11 and Y15. The edges were sponged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The large dogwood flowers were stamped on handmade paper from Laos. (A special gift from a friend but you can try this technique with any specialty paper you may have.) I used Espresso Truffle Ink. The flowers were cut using the coordinating die. The flower centers are die cut from green card stock. The edges of the small flowers were sponged with Espresso Truffle Ink and Olive Grove Ink. The leaves were stamped and sponged with Olive Grove Ink. The flowers and leaves were lightly misted on the underside with water and a mini mister and shaped using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Tool Kit.

Prills were applied to the center of some of the flowers. Star Dust Stickles were lightly applied to one side of each cross for embellishment.
