Sunflower Tutorial

Happy Friday Cheery Lynn Lovers.  Today I'm going to share a simple tutorial on how to make these stunning sunflowers.  It's really simple, take a look.

Step 1: Cut three sunflowers from the Sunflower Die.  Ink all the edges of the petal with distress ink.  I use vintage photo for most of my brown distressing.

Step 2 : Crease each petal.  As you can see I use a pair of tweezers and pinch up around with my fingers making a nice crease.

Step 3: Stack two of the flowers together and glue.  On the third cut the center out of the flower.  

Step 4: Fold and pleat the interior of the flower petal.  This will take in the diameter so the center petals are shorter and more realistic. You'll finish off the flower with the die cut cetner that comes with your die.  

Here are more photos of my easel card I creating using my sunflowers.  

Need to get your hands on all the dies I used, no is a complete list. 
Thank Die
