Today it is all about the Peony dies, no stamping on any of the 3 cards. Simple tips to assemble the Peony flower. When I received my die I was intimated on all the bits and pieces with this die. Oh! after giving it try I have to say this is the easiest flower builder that I have done with flower building.
The tip video can be view at the bottom or you can view it on my YouTube channel. Note that at the end of the video another video will be displayed that is for the rococo rose card that I did live on YouTube with extra tips of the watercolor paper flower.
Tip to assemble the peony flower
Die-cut all 5 pieces for the flower. 4 of the pieces have all the same cut at the bottom it is a little V tip at the bottom that is the guide to align the bottom of each piece. Start with the biggest and work to the smallest by sliding each piece in the opening and guide in the back you will see a pattern to align and add some liquid glue at the bottom.
The 5th piece is the little pod seed slide in the center. BOOM that simple you build your Peony flower. All is shown in the video.
The top card is Very Vanilla 11 x 4¼ score at 5½ for the card base. The gold in the back of the peony is the Laser Gold cut. You will need Cherry Cobbler to die cut your flower and gold foil for the center.
This one is the one that I shared live on YouTube.
