Coloring Flower Die Cuts with Memento

In the tutorial video below, I show how to color and shape flower die cuts for a realistic look. The dies are by Elizabeth Craft Designs and Susan Tierney-Cockburn.

Making the Card

Start by cutting the cardstock:
Kraft card base 7x10 inches
Dark brown cardstock  4 1/4 x 6 1/4 inches
Patterned cardstock 4x6 inches
From white cardstock:
  • Die cut one copy of all petal layers except the small (cut two) for the Magnolia - make 1 flower
  • Die cut two copies of each petal layer for each Chrysanthemum - make 2 flowers
  • Die cut one copy of all petal layers for each tulip - make 4 flowers
Die cut three sets of Ivy, plus as many leaves as desired for the flowers from green cardstock
Die cut one grapevine wreath from brown cardstock

Here's the video tutorial step-by-step:
