Beautiful Blooms Cardmaking Joset Designs Paper flowers Soft Finish Cardstock

Mini Book with Desert Blooms

May 4, 2022

Good Morning friends, it is Karan Gerber here to share a mini book project with you. This is designed using Florals 17 as well as the Mini Book Die.

I die cut the florals and leaves out on the Soft Finish cardstock then colored front and back with rusty hinge distress ink and dabbed a bit of vintage photo on the tips to add some depth.

I shaped them with my stylus and mat and curled them into this shape, I hot glued them together and then added a bit more shape to them and inserted stamens. They remind me of small desert flowers I have seen in the Grand Canyon. 

To add a bit of detail to the box, i splattered watered down acrylic paint and some ancient gold coin paint. I decided to go on the center of the leaves with a thin paint brush with gold coin paint. 
I then added some art stones to add even more detail and dimension. 

I love how this little project turned out and hope you give this a try.
