Hi, crafty friends! For today’s project, I made a beautiful card with a Macrame background and stunning Peony Flowers. I used card stocks from the Sirio Collection in Nude and Cashmere; both are gorgeous! I also used Bright White and Barely Green to round out the design. Let’s get started.


Supplies


I’m starting with a Bright White A2 (4.25" x 5.5") size piece of card stock. This will be my background that I will glue to a card base later. I die cut the pieces from the Macrame die in Nude and Cashmere and adhered those to the background with liquid glue.

I die cut the flowers using a peony die from Bright White card stock and the leaves from Barely Green. I added a little bit of color with the R00 Copic Marker, swiping the marker from the center of the flower out onto the petals. I only went about halfway up the petal. To shape the flower, I used the stylus and the foam, I placed the flower onto the foam and used the end of the stylus to rub the card stock. This breaks down the fibers and shapes the paper. Put the stylus in the center of the flower and press and move in a circular motion to close up the flower. I did the same for the leaves.

I glued the flowers together and added the stamen, cut from Nude card stock, to the center of the large flower. I stamped the sentiment with black ink onto Bright White card stock and used the coordinating die from the Opposites Attract set.

I glued the flowers, leaves and smaller sentiment with liquid glue and the larger sentiment with foam tape. I then adhered the whole thing to an A2 size folded card base. For more info on cutting basic card sizes, see our Paper 101 page
