Below I will show you how I created the vase of flowers.
In this picture you can see the little flowers I shaped from the CountryScapes - Backyard 2 set. In this set you also get the vase and the leaves you use to place the flowers on -- this is the large green piece on the black molding pad in the upper right corner. I have shaped that piece to give dimension to the flowers. I wanted to add more greenery behind the flowers, so I die cut the leaves shown, which are from the Garden Patch - 7/8-inch & Mini Leaves die set. These little leaves look just like the ones on the larger leaf piece. To make them realistic, I shaped each leaf with the smallest ball stylus from Susan's Tool Set. Just press down lightly on the front side of each little leaf (on the molding pad), then turn it over and press on the stem to give it shape.
I started assembling the vase of flower by gluing the tall greenery behind the vase. (The vase is from the CountryScapes - Backyard 2 die set.) Next I attached the greenery from the same set at the top of the vase using a dimensional glue dot.
The small leaves where glued down on the large green leaf die cut, overlapping them to create fullness.
