Hi there, and happy Tuesday!
Today I’ve made a card for this week’s Clean and Simple Sketch 88. Why oh why did I have to start making cards with 3D bits on them? They don’t fit in envelopes properly.. they don’t mail well.. am I going to have to start buying bubble wrap packages and paying 5 times the cost to send a birthday card? Sheesh! But come on, flowers and butterflies and bows that jump off the page are just TOO CUTE!
This card took a total of about 15 minutes, and this is the first time I ever made this little rose flower. Nina has a fabulous tutorial for these on her blog – Crafting in Croatia. It’s definitely worth a wander over there! I tore mine instead of using scalloped scissors, and I’m quite happy with the results. They’re SO EASY to make!
I stamped the leaves (Basic Grey) and ‘best wishes’ (Hero Arts) in some chalk inks, added the bow, rounded the corners with a punch, and edges the paper flower with a bit of purple ink.
Here’s the original sketch:
This is very pretty! I love the color combo you used, and those stamped leaves! Great job with Sketch 88 at the CASS blog!
Pretty card, love the colours you’ve used!
Wow! I love this! The colours are fabulous and that’s a gorgeous little flower – thanks for the link. Good point about 3D cards – I just give them to local people; if I’m posting, I make a flatter or a one layer card
