It's Donna here with with another card to share with you. The floral leaves are a new release for April which is called Leafy Swirls. I just love them, there are so many possibilities for these. The flower is a large 3D flower. This flower can also be made in many different ways. I finished off the card with the Best Wishes sentiment. My card can be for a wedding, graduation or someone leaving for a new job.
Here is a closer look at the flower....
- Card Base: 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" and scored at 4 1/4" to make an A2 card (4 1/4" x 5 1/2")
- The black layer is 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
- The woodgrain pattern paper is 4" x 2 1/4" and the floral is 4" x 2 1/4"
- I added the ribbon and flower and
- finished my card by adding some clear drops.
Here is how I put the flower together:
The flower has 6 pieces, and measures 2.2W x 2.2H. I die cut them out with paper.
After the flowers are die cut and inked, I used my bone folder to curl the edges to get the fibers lose.
After the flowers are curled, I started to assemble the flower. I used a small brad to hold the flowers. I started putting the smallest pedal on first and then go to the largest.
Here is the finished flower. I used a wink of stella clear to add some shimmer to the flower.
This is it for today, I hope I have inspired you to try out some of the 3D flowers.
