Two Cards Featuring G45 Metal Dies
So Today two really similar cards with using G45 dies!! Yes! D I E S. They are very intricate but they cut like butter you have 3 sets to choose from and today I want to share some tips about them.
How I created this project and how to make flower itself you can check out in short Instagram videos.
For my first example, I use collection Sun Kissed. I cut out some elements with Dies and created Flowers.
To make dimensional flowers you will need round object using metal flower shaping tool but you can do it also with the back of your brush. I’m pressing my tool to bend paper and shape it in round form and I'm treating each of my die cut flowers like that.
I'm gluing all flowers together and mount steams inside and they are ready to go.

The second card Is based on the same idea But I use watercolor paper and G45 Inks. To fill up all gaps I use some cut outs from Floral Shoppe.
