A delicate flower of a card

Faux button close up

Today’s project is one that I’ve been demonstrating at recent workshops and that I made as a swap for my teammates at the weekend when we met up. A few people have commented that they wouldn’t have thought to put the Cherry Cobbler with the Baja Breeze – but it works! It just adds that little lift of colour so that the card is dainty but not dreary.

The card base is a Spring Card. It’s an oldie but goodie, one that I haven’t used for a while. I’ll pop back tomorrow with a template just in case you haven’t already got it. The flower was made by die cutting the large and small flowers from Very Vanilla card with the Fun Flowers die. These were stamped with the En Francais in Baja Breeze. The medium flower was die cut from DSP and then all of them had the edges sponged with more Baja Breeze ink. All the petals were curled using the edge of a bone folder and then the flowers layered together. A faux button (one of two techniques that we’ll be trying on Saturday) was used for the centre of the flower. You can see how glossy it is in the close up at the top of the post. The corners of the card have been stamped with the edge flourish from the Strength and Hope set.

And the card has an insert on the back/inside:
