Mandala Florals

     These are the flowers and leaves from John Next Door that go with the mandala die set, something a little different, one set has a solid petal and another has an open petal and it's the same with the leaves.
     For the centre panel I cut the purple card with the second solid die from the mandala set and cut the green card layer with a solid die from the Woodford set, they match very well.
     Using the stencil words I cut the sentiment in the purple layer and backed it with some silver paper before putting it on foam tape over the green card.
     I also cut two corners from the purple card and glued them on opposite corners, leaving the bottom left for the flower spray.
     I had a piece of card left over from playing around with Brusho Purple, there was enough to cut some flowers and a couple of corners. 
     The corners were trimmed a little, stuck on silver paper and then cut out by hand. Once cut out I glued them together at the square tip to form a butterfly to fill the empty corner at the top of the card.
     For the leaves I used two shades of green card, keeping the lighter for the open leaves and the dark for the solid. Using a ball tool and a soft mat the leaves were given a little shape.
     The spray was built up on the card by tucking the leaves under the flowers and sticking them down. Each flower has a small silver pearl in the centre to tie in with the silver greeting and butterfly wings.
     The Mandal die set may have been an exclusive to Hochanda but you will be able to get the flowers and leaves from your local craft shop.
