Memory Box Tilth Die

Hi Everyone,
Dynamic Duos Challenge
This flower is made with the Memory Box Tilth die. When I first started to work with this die, I was ready to defenestrate it. But I persevered, and below I have some simple instructions that could make your life a little easier if you buy this die.
So what I discovered was to use a cardstock that has a slight coating on it for the base and outline of the flower. That will be your first cut, and as soon as it comes out of the Big Shot, you need to glue a circle to the back of it:
The reason you need to use a heavier cardstock with a finish on it is so that the glue doesn't tear the cardstock. The next step is to cut another of the bottom/border color and place on top of the original flower and glue it down. I used a liquid glue:
With the extra layer on the border, you can now cut the petals to the flower. This can be cheaper, lighter paper or cardstock:
That extra border on top will produce a space that the petals fit into. Afer you have glued all the petals in place, you can then shape your flower.
