Flower Soft - Vase of Flowers

I'll be getting some new sentiments soon, I promise! I just love the look of the Flower Soft and decided to take my card to the next level by adding a little more dimension with my Flower Soft. It's pretty easy to do, and all you need is your PVA Glue, Flower Soft and some wire. Luckily for me, I never got rid of my retired Wire Works!

To start, I cut my wire about 5 inches long (you can trim it later), placed a line of PVA Glue on my wire, then started to add my Flower Soft. You'll want to continue to add, and gently push the Flower Soft onto your wire, when done place in a piece of Styrofoam until the glue sets - about 15-20 minutes depending on how much glue you actually used.



My vase was stamped on my Labels II Nestabilities, then stamped again on my Candy Lane DSP and cut out. I adhered the pattern piece to my stamped image by placing a few dimensionals on the edge. Keep the center open so you can place your flowers in your vase. To adhere your flowers inside your vase, cut to size, then place a small amount of PVA glue on the end and slip into place. The green curly accent piece you see is simply a sliver of Celery card stock that I twisted and added for dimension.


I placed my focal image onto my Riding Hood Red Labels II piece with dimensionals then onto my Candy Lane DSP panel also with dimensionals. Fro some added dimension, I pierced around the Nestabilities. The sentiment I used from Starving Artistamps can be seen here.
