For Prickley Pear Design Team By Ujjwal Goel
Step 1: Die cut 16 leaves using the Prickley Pear Holly Leaves Die
Step 2: Stamp and white heat emboss different leaves on the die cuts using the Holly Leaves and Berries Stamp Set
Step 3: Using Walnut Stain Distress ink and ink blending tool/Sponge, ink the edges of all the embossed leaves to give them more definition and a rustic look.
Step 4: Its now time to arrange the leaves into a flower. Use a 1” circle for the base and start arranging the leaves. We will use 8 leaves for the first layer and the rest 8 leaves for the second layer of flower to build dimension. (the picture doesn’t show a circle for the base, but this is the basic idea of arrangement)
Step 5: Once the first layer is glued to the base circle, using the remaining 8 leaves and dimensional adhesive/foam dots to build the second layer
Step 6: To finish off the flower, add a circle and a big rhinestone to the center. The flower is now ready to be used as an embellishment on your next holiday project.
Here is the card I made using the flower.
