As I’ve been posting some of my cards with the big sunflowers on them, or colorful mum like flowers, I’ve been asked how I do them. I tried writing out instructions, but some were still confused, so tonight I created another flower and this time took photos as I worked. So are a bit blurry, but I hope you get the idea.
Step one. Cut your flowers & centers out on the cricut. I used the Art Philosophy cartridge. Cut 2 <Flower1> (Shift 1 ) at 2.5″ and 1 <Flower1> (Shift 1) at 2″ I then cut 1 smooth <circle1> (1) at 1″ and 1 scallop <circle2> (q) at 1″ Now you have all the pieces you need to create one flower.
I also ink the edges of the scallop circle and normally the edges of the smooth, now dotty circle, but didn’t so you would be able to see the layers better.
Next you get to play with the flower petals. In this example I used sunset ink to add color to all three of the flower petals.
Now you can start assembling all your components to create a stunning accent to any of your projects!
Here are some of my creations using this flower.
