Mums Layout

For those of you who missed the Mums layout from the May Seasonal Solutions Class at Craft City, some kits will be available at Craft City. The following are instruction to create this pretty page complete with paper mums you create!

Trim the label off the green cardstock to make it 12X12.

We used Core'dinations paper which once you sand the edges, you can see the paler green core. Sand all the edges of both sheets of green cardstock. Use a nail file or sanding block.

Ink the edges of all the yellow mattes.

Take the 12x4 dotted cardstock and trim off a 4X4 piece on the top, then take the longer piece to trim into a 1X8 piece and 3X8 piece as shown.

Distress and ink these edges as well.

Place all the square as shown. Start with the 4X4 piece on the left hand side of the layout, lining it up with the right edges and two inches down from the top. You can then align all pieces in the blocks as shown.

Separate all the mum pieces. Each mum consists of three dark pink, three light pink, and one yellow piece, all of varying heights.

Lightly ink all the flower petals.

Stack the petals from largest to smallest. Punch through the center.

Using your scissors, trim toward the center the yellow pieces to make narrow.

Add a gold brad through the center. Push the petals toward the center.

Using a skewer, paint brush end, or other narrow item, curl the edges of the pink petals upward.

Put the brad and yellow piece through the center of the flower and fluff it.

Add the flowers as shown in the layout.

Using an embossing stylus, draw the veins of the leaves and ink the edges. Ink the edges of the swirls.

Using glue dots or tacky glue, adhere the leaves and swirls under the flowers.
