Have you ever tried creating WHITE die-cut flowers?

Simply die cutting white cardstock and layering petals and flower centers, it lacks something, so what can you do?  Today I have 2, very different, techniques to share with you to inspire you to create some easy and beautiful white die-cut flowers.  Let's get started!

Technique #1 – Blended Shadow

A quick and easy way to add some shadow and depth to a white die-cut flower is to lightly blend some black or grey ink to the centre of the petals.

PRO TIP: A fast and easy way to create multiple flowers, is to die cut ALL the pieces in white cardstock and then add color after.

To create the bouquet, I used some leaves from the Just Leaves Die Set and also added a sentiment from the Build-A-Garden: Blushing Magnolias Stamp Set.

Technique #2 – Stamped Pattern

For a modern, bold design, why not try stamping a pattern onto some of the petals of the white die-cut flowers? I used the Gradient Stripes background stamp, but a dotted pattern or even a graphic style would look fabulous too.

I added a textured background using the Window Slats 3D Embossing Folder.
