Rustic Octagon


To make the card base, take the outer size die from the Simple Center Piece die set and the white cardstock, die cut twice. Make a fold line at 1/2" across the top of one of the sides. Apply double sided tape to this then join the two pieces of card together. Fold back a little, the card that has the fold line in it so the card can stand on its own.

Using the same die, the die that is one size smaller and the design paper sheet 11B, die cut one of the large size and two of the smaller size. Take one of the smaller sized cuts and adhere this to the card inside. With the paper distressing tool, distress all the edges of the remaining papers. Adhere to the card front using the 3D double sided tape or dots. Taking the white card stock and the lacy frame of the Simply Elegant Center Piece die set then die cut the frame once. Adhere this to the card front. Make the sentiment band by stamping with the sepia ink the sentiment onto the white card stock. Trim so it will fit across the card front then mat it with a scrap from the sheet 11B. Adhere across the middle of the card front.

Make the sunflowers and leaves for around the sentiment. Twelve small sized sunflowers are used and seven leaves that are cut into to make twenty six small leaves. Each flower has two layers so you need to stamp with the sepia ink on to the white card stock, twenty four small sized flower petals  and seven leaves. Color the sunflower with the mango and the leaves with the parakeet and spruce Aqua Blend water color pencils and the water coloring pen. When coloring is complete, die cut all with the matching dies. Use the Rustic Sunflower mold and the deluxe flower shaping tool kit to bring dimension to the flowers and leaves. For each flower layer, apply a little clear drying adhesive to the petal tips then dip them into glitter. Put aside to dry. When dry adhere two layers together to form the flower. Apply clear drying adhesive to the flower centers then sprinkle the black sand in the centers. Put aside to dry. When dry adhere all in place using the hot glue gun. Trim the leaves so you have at least four smaller leaves from each leaf. Adhere these leaves between each flower also using the hot glue gun.
