Fun Foam Flowers

I really love having my Big Shot machine to help make projects quickly! I needed to make 8 of these cards to swap with some ladies at my upline's meeting last week, and the Big Shot and the Flower Daisies # 2 die helped make 24 of these flowers in less than 10 minutes. They were created out of white adhesive-backed fun foam (you can purchase the fun foam this way - saving lots of time and mess!), and these flowers are the small daisy on the die (there are 3 sizes altogether). Did you know the Big Shot can cut through 50 different types of materials? Yep, it's versatile and amazing!!! :)

I used a strip of patterned paper from the Razzleberry Lemonade collection, and a Pumpkin Pie block on white cardstock for my cardfront. I did slide two "photo corner" punched pieces under the DSP to bring the pumpkin color over to the left side, and tied a piece of Rich Razzleberry polka-dotted ribbon around. I stamped the sentiment from Sincere Salutations in Rich Razzleberry ink in the lower right corner and glued this onto my Rich Razzleberry cardbase. Before attaching my flowers, I used a 1/2" circle punch to create 3 circles from Rich Razzleberry cardstock for my flower centers. I glued the circles down, then applied the adhesive-backed fun foam flowers on top. Finally, I filled the flower centers with Crystal Effects about 1/3 the height of the foam, and dabbed the end of a toothpick in some Dazzling Diamonds glitter to mix with the Crystal Effects. It's so sparkly!!!

It took just alittle over 2 1/2 hours to make the 8 cards assembly-line style, so that's about 20 minutes a card from start to finish. Not bad at all in my book for something that is homemade and looks nice! I hope that you are having a great weekend - and for those of you who attend my Technique class, don't forget our meeting in a couple days.... see you all soon!
