Hello! I hope everybody survived the Big Winter Storm!
We had 8 inches of snow! Wow! It has been 10+ years since we have seen snow like that here in the Piedmont area. And now...the sun is out and the snow is beginning to melt. Yay!
And of course I took advantage of being stuck indoors! Craft room...here I come!
I was inspired by the current Frilly & Funky Challenge.
Your project must have hand-made flowers!
I made a birthday card for one of my co-workers!
And the fun part about this card, is that I used paper from a valentine paper pad. This is a page from the Cupid's Arrow No.14 (MME) 6x6 paper pad. There was a heart on this page, but I hid it with some flowers! The flowers were also made with paper from this same valentine paper pack.
I used the Tim Holtz Tattered Flower Garland die to cut out my flower petals. I misted the cut out petals with water and folded each one around the tip of a paint brush. When they were nice and dry, I carefully pulled them back to their original shape. This technique gives the petals great texture. I then rounded the petals by curling them around the end of the paint brush. I put them together with a hot glue gun. The flowers are more aqua color INR, than what they appear in this photo!!
The red leaves were punched with a Martha Stewart Leaf punch.
The sentiment was heat embossed with white embossing powder on a black tag which was cut with an Impression Obsession tag die.
Here is another view of my card on a gray background. I just wish the aqua flowers would show up better in these photos!!! Darn it!!
I'm gonna hook this card up to the Simon Says Monday Challenge-We Love Stamps, too!
