Tips:Use the Offset function on the Silhouette software to automatically create mats for your words and shapes. It’s easy to create multiple sizes of mats for more layering. The pink daisy background is one piece; I “welded” the shapes together in the software before cutting out.
I used a glue pen to glue the intricate shapes down. Tacky Glue applied with a toothpick or craft pick also works for gluing down skinny shapes.
- Cover the entire outer surface of the portfolio with Timber Brown ink, using the direct inkpad-to-paper method.
- Arrange a dozen 2 ¾” daisies (Flower 1022) overlapping each other in the Silhouette software and use the weld function to connect them together. Cut the shape out of pink words texture paper and glue to the portfolio, trim off the petals extending past the portfolio. Cut out a dozen 1 ½” blue daisies from blue texture paper. Cut out brown cardstock mats for the blue daisies and glue them onto the mats. Glue each blue daisy to the center of a large pink one.
- Cut out “Amelia” from pink words texture. Cut out a brown cardstock mat and glue the word onto it. Cut out an additional blue mat and glue the matted word onto it. Cut out two 1 ½” brown cardstock daisies. Cut out mats from pink texture and glue the brown daisies onto the mats. Glue the two daisies on either side of the top flap, ½” from the side. Glue “Amelia” in the center, overlapping the daisies.
- Place a 5mm pink crystal in the center of every flower.
