Signs of Spring - Flower Tutorial with Nicole

Here in Utah there are signs of spring everywhere!  The daffodils in my neighbors yard are in full bloom, the grass is turning green, and best of all the days are starting to warm up.  I've been bringing the spring into my crafting as well.

I wanted to make a card with some daffodils and chose Samantha's flower 5 to create a daffodil looking flower.  I opened it up and placed several of the base and the centers on my mat in Silhouette Studio.  I then brought in just the grass from the Easter Bunny file.  

I placed all my cardstock on the mat and hit cut.  I slowed down my machine just a touch from the textured cardstock setting since the cuts on the flower centers are tiny.  The Cameo is amazing and cut them out perfectly!

I then added a little texture to my petals and flower center by curling them up.  The centers are so tiny that I used the end of a colored pencil to help.  
I then took orange chalk ink to ink the edges. 
 I assembled all my flowers with small dots of glue.  

Here is my finished card.  I just love the added dimension these small flowers create.   

 Supplies Cut files:  Flower 5 and Easter Bunny (links below); Pattern Paper: Carta Bella; Stamps: JustRite; Vellum: Darice; ink: Martha Stewart (chalk ink) and Tsuikeniko; cardstock:  Bazzill; embroidery floss: DMC

Hope you are starting to see the signs of Spring wherever you are, Happy Crafting!
