Die Cut Layered Flowers

Flowers are just the most perfect craft embellishment

While you can buy pre-made blooms, they do get expensive especially if you want lots of different colours..

How do us crafty people solve a problem like that?..

Make them from paper scraps!

Die cut & layer your own flowers!

I made the card pictured using the the Kaisercraft ‘Layered Flowers’ decorative die set.

You can layer the flowers from this set in a few different ways, but I only used the ‘small’ sized flowers and leaf.

The flowers shown were made from leftover coloured printer paper!

  • Give the flowers more dimension by cutting away petals on the second and third layers then re-joining the sides back together in a 3D shape.
  • Curl back the edges of the flowers and die cut a small pointy flower in green to use as the base for layering.
  • Finish off by adding a little pearl in the center just for that bit of extra sparkle

See.. Simple!

Now create something special with your handmade blooms.

I die cut a lavender square using the largest of the Kaisercraft ‘Stitched Squares’ dies, which i adhered over an ivory card base.

I then cut a blue ‘Congratulations’ sentiment using a Kaisercraft word die.

The pink butterfly in the centre was punched with a Christina Re butterfly hand punch.

As always, added a little bling to finish it off!

I think it came out really cute for a quick little Sunday afternoon DIY!

While it’s so quick and easy to just buy pre-made embellishments, the sense of accomplishment when you can say ‘I made it from scratch’ feels great!

Such a fun card, I might start reaching for my dies again more often!..
