I love the simplicity of this pretty petals diecut set by Heartfelt Creations. This set is so versatile in creating other shapes than just petals alone.
Here is a card I made for my hubby for our anniversary this month. I like the idea of a sunflower because it’s more masculine and thought it would be perfect for his card. I diecut about 10 to 12 petals from each of the two smallest sized petals to create the sunflower. The stem was made with a paper straw wrapped with green washi tape and the leaf is punched using the 3rd largest petal from the die set.
Feathers have been a popular trend but if you don’t want to use real feathers here is a quick and easy way to transform a petal into a feather.
Diecut a large petal from kraft card stock. Make score lines down the center and at angles with the Scor-pal tool. You don't have to be perfect with the scoring. With scissors, cut random slits around the edge and you have just created a feather! These would also make great palm leaves if you were to use green card stock.
Another motif from nature I love is the butterfly which I made from a few smaller sized petals.
Cut out 2 petals each from the 2nd and 3rd smallest petals (these are the butterfly wings). Apply some Scor-pal tape to white cardstock and cut out the smallest petal (this is the butterfly's body).
Peel away the tape liner to expose the sticky surface and place the wings on the body. After the wings are on the body, pour glitter over the remaining exposed sticky surface. Decorate the body with a jewel brad and some twine.
Hope you enjoyed these ideas to transform petals into other pretty shapes.
Have a wonderful day!
