Here is the store bought card from one of my best friends:
And here is my take on the above card. Truthfully, I like the store bought one better.
I had a lot of fun figuring out what kind of flower I wanted to use on this card. I finally decided to use my Spellbinders Blossom Two Nestabilities dies (largest and second smallest dies). I grabbed some Royal Velvet scraps and went to work. Here are some pics of the steps I did to make the flowers. Click on the photos to enlarge.
|1. Die cut flowers|
|2. Scored from petal tip to opposite petal tip|
|3. Cut between each scored petal|
|4. Folded each petal inward after cutting|
I decided to flip the little flower over when layering it on the bigger flower. I liked the dimension that it gave the blossom. Since the flowers and the leaves were all cut from scraps I had in my scrap box, this fits Katie's Papertrey Paper Dolls challenge this week too!! You can check it out HERE. I could probably submit just about every card I make for Katie's challenge. I'm so frugal that I make sure to use every last scrap I can before cutting into a new sheet of paper.
That's it from me. Whew, it felt good to be crafty today. Hope you all have a great weekend!
