Flower Soft Wired and Butterflies

Jan23 blk

Flower Soft is so versatile, the sky is the limit on how it’s used!

This week over on the FS blog, we’re featuring wire. Yup, wire!

Here’s what I did


I created the flower centers and spike-type flowers with FS wire, FS glue and 2 colors Ocean, Fuchsia.

Cut lengths of wire, add a dab of FS glue to end and roll in FS to coat, stick ends in a piece of foam to dry. (using tweezers or needle nose pliers helps) After assembling the flowers, I used my Cropadile and punched a hole in the centers then inserted the wires.
For the spikey stems, I just bent the wire a bit, put a dab of FS glue and stuck it in place. (you might need to hold or lean it against something until it sets)

Foliage and flowers are Martha Stewart punches.
The card base is a Sizzix folder, Birds and Branches.
Butterflies are ODBD’s 2 Step Butterfly with matching Butterfly 2 Die, sentiment also from ODBD, Birthday Blessings.

Definitely a ‘hand delivered’ card, but that was the plan anyway!

Thanks for stopping!

Hi Dawn~

How creative of you! They add so much to this card. Wonderful colors to bring out, and the dimension makes it unbelievable! Thank you for the close-up photos. It really shows the advantages of layering. I love how you added some FS to the inside of the cupped flowers.
