Today I have a card for you and it has nothing to do with the holidays, can you believe it! I had a couple minutes to play last night before dinner (I love leftovers, gives me more time in the day!)
So for this card I took my color inspiration from a lands end catalog. There was a page full of women's sweaters and one of the sweaters was purple, grey and white and of course I thought to my self that the color combo would make a fantastic card, so off to work I went making this card.
The flower is a technique that I've been wanting to try for a while now. Actually I have tried it a couple times before but was not happy with my results, so I tried again and found that I liked the way it came out much better. The card is inspired by Dawn McVey, she's a super talented crafter and is know for her simple, shabby chic, vintage cards.
What a fun, quick, easy card this was to make. You can't tell in the picture, but the white paper is actually shimmer white paper which gives it a nice extra little touch.
-To make your flowers, tear circles of different sizes out of your favorite colors and layer.
-crumpling up gives you a totally different look with your flower layers.
-stamping on your torn flowers gives it an added interest
-to make the leaves use an oval punch. Punch once, then put the leaf back in at an angle and punch again.
-use the tip of your bone folder to make the veins of the leaf's.
