For months I have wanted to do some flower cards and just never made time. Well as you can see, I have. I am starting with a flower I made using Spellbinder's Blossom die set.
The smallest 3 dies from Spellbinder's Blossom set were run through my Cuttlebug twice using Curious Gold Leaf White Gold 8.5X11 text. It is more of a bone color with a gold sheen to it. Text is easier to mold and is still thicker than normal text weight paper. I trimmed the petals in the valleys a little so they would curl easier. I laid them out and then inked up Impression Obsession's Cover-A-Card Dots on my Mega Mount with Brilliance Coral and rocked it over them and then dried them with a heat gun. I curled the petals with a crochet handle and mounted them on top one another as shown. A humongous White pearl sticker was put in the middle and Stickles Cinnamon glitter glue was used for the dots you see around it. At this point I have one petal layer left for the sentiment.
I ran a pink piece of cardstock through the Cuttlebug using their Textile Texture embossing folder. I ran my Opalite Golden Mist pad over the embossed area to add a gold sheen to it. I cut it in half and then taped it to a white piece of Domtar cardstock.
I ran remnant pieces of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80lb. text weight paper through my Fiskars Eyelet Lace Border Punch to do 5 layers at 1.5"X4.0".
A remnant piece of dark brown ribbon was threaded through a piece of May Arts lace and taped to the card. The bow was done with the Bow-Easy. This was mounted on Curious Chocolate.
The sentiment is from Impression Obsession Clear Stamp Set Mini Messages and was stamped on Neenah Solar White Classic Crest remnant cardstock using Memento Rich Cocoa. I placed a clear oval sticker on top of it and then taped to center of the last petal die cut and mounted as shown. Last I used a Viva Decor Cream Pearl Pen to accent certain embossed areas in the paper lace.
I had fun and think I might try a ribbon rose next! Thanks for stopping by to look and say hi!
