Chocolate Dogwood Flowers

June 18, 2015

Hello, friends! It’s Bianca Petroschi, newest member of Susan’s Garden Design Team!

This article is not a tutorial. I created it specifically for inspiration and to show you that, when you create with Susan’s Garden dies, you can use unlimited imagination.

In this case, I have used the Susan’s Garden – Dogwood die completely different from the way we are used to seeing it. I cut brown 300 gr / sqm cardstock and the stamen’s pollen was made with bronze embossing powder.

I attached the paper flowers on a matchbox using the heat embossing technique over a layer of dark brown acrylic paint.




I added some cute mini flowers on the lids using seeds element from the Garden Notes – Sunflower die from orange cardstock.

So, I turned a boring box into a souvenir package for jewelry or anything you can imagine with tempting chocolate shades.

On my website, you can find a tutorial in Romanian language about how to work with the Susan’s Garden – Dogwood die by accessing the link HERE.
