Tutorial Tuesday with Cathi!

Tuesday, April 16, 2013







I wanted to try something a little different with my embossing folders, so I decided to make some embossed 3D roses!!  Here is how I put it together...



I used the two smallest Couture Creations Daisy Nesting Dies. If you don't have these, you can make your own simple 8 petal flower shape templates at approximately 1.5" and 2.5". For the larger rose, use two small and one large die cut. For the smaller roses, it only takes two of the smaller shape. First cut the shapes needed and then emboss.

Use a sanding block or emery board to reveal the awesome texture from the embossing folder.

Use a craft knife or scissors to cut deeper petals for making the flowers.

Shape the flower by bringing every second petal up and curving them, glue the remaining petals
to form the rosebud, making sure the embossed and sanded edge is facing outwards.

Shape the next flower die cut by making circular motions on the underside of each petal using a stylus.

For the second layer of the small rose, glue your finished rosebud in the center
this time with the embossed side facing up.


Press and shape and glue in to place

To make larger roses simply add more die cut daisy cut outs,
alternating the petal placement between the previous layer so they have a natural full look.
