For this blog post I have used the latest collections from the Floral collection and from Esther, the Planner collection, even the sidekick, so I am very happy with that because I am making my annual overview this year in my sidekick planner and what a super fun addition.
For this card I started making the flowers, they are so beautiful!!!
To make the flowers I watched some videos from Karen and I once did a make & take with Anita, with all those tips and the right tools it is easy to do. So my advice is, watch some videos and take your time, it’s fun to make these beautiful flowers and making beautiful things just takes some time.
This flower was designed by Joseph Nguyen.
Once I was done with the flowers I wanted to make a slim line card with them.
I made the base from DCP paper, folded in half lengthwise 8.75″x 3.75″
The edges are inked with Distress oxide ink Frayed Burlap and they have been given a Walnut stain edge.
I did the same with the design paper from Esther’s new reminiscence book.
and with the second layer, also from book 6, which I cut with the slimline background 1 Die from Joset.
It is in the Christmas set but is also very useful for regular cards, really a beautiful background.
A piece is torn on the left and the edges of the 1st layer are distressed, then they are stitched together with my sewingmachine.
A piece of pink lace has been glued to the base card behind the torn part.
You can see it a little better in this photo.
Then I gave everything a place until I was satisfied and everything is glued.
Of course I also had to add a sentiment, for that I used the new stamp set from the Florals collection and a Die from the window overlay set P.E.36 (see photo 1)
I loved working on this card, something different than usual.
In the past I also often made “vintage” cards, so a bit back in time.
Hopefully you have gained some inspiration.
