DCWV Citrus Stack-Spellbinders Die Cut Frame Layout

Hello crafty friends,
Today I am sharing a simple but pretty layout I created using some fabulous dies from Scrapyland.com. Here is my layout. I used some beautiful DCWV Citrus Stack paper and some cardstock.

The pretty “frame” was created by using the Spellbinders D-Lites Corner Flourish. I cut it out 16 times and then layered them on some slate blue cardstock to create the “frame”.

I then cut out 25 white flowers from the Momenta Flower Die set and then layered them to create the flowers. Finally I cut out the Poppy Stamps Meadow Leaf die 10 times and added the lovely leafy sprigs to the layout. I didn’t want to add too much more as I wanted the layout to look very clean and understated. That way my pretty niece Taylor would shine.

Here’s How I made the flowers

I started by layering a set of 5 flowers onto each other. I staggered the layers so the petals would “alternate”. 

Next, I inked the edges of the crisp white with my Aqua Cat’s Eye Ink Pad
Then I began to curl the petals. I used a crochet needle I had on hand, but anything you have that has a thinner barrel would work well. I curled the petals Inward and layered them onto each other. The center petals got curled more deeply to give the flower some shape.

Once I curled all the petals upward. I inked the edges again so the ink would be on both sides of the petal.
