Today is Monday and that means a brand new challenge fromÂ Bitten by the Bug 2Â goes live and here is my Flowery Card. Because of the National Old Stuff Day the theme for today’s challenge is Use a cartridge you haven’t use in a LONG time. Looking on shelf with my cartridges I realized, I use them all pretty often. But there is one, I usedÂ just ones after buying. I don’t know why, but Florals Embellished wasn’t in my favorite list and thank you to ….. for this challenge theme I can give it a little bit cut :).
As there is many images of flowers and butterflies and I wanted the image, I’ve chosen, to be main part of the card, I started from choosing the right size of white base for it. 4 by 5 1/2″ should be good for the flower size around 2″. (The green mat size – 4 1/4″ by 5 1/2″, and actually card size 4 1/2″ by 5 3/4″).
I needed 2 flowers. That’s why I cut <Flwr12-s> from light green Bazzill card stock big one – Â 2″, smaller – 1 1/2″. Then from red Â and pink card stock I cut elements of Layer 1 accordingly 2″ and 1 1/2″. Then – center. Here came some challenge. I didn’t like centers from this particular image and I went in creative journey cutting some centers from different images of this cartridge. After few tries I chose <Flower5> in Real Dial Size 0 3/4″ for big flower and 01/2″ for small flower.
After cutting I put flowers together and added 3D foam tape for the dimension.
Next preparing the background for the flowers. Â I decided to make distress ornament. I took Heidy Swapp stencil and added yellow dye ink.
Last touch – doodling around the edges with Bundled Sage distress marker.
After all preparations were done I put my card together, added a little bit liquid pearls aroung to light it up and stamped Verve sentiment.
I want to send this card to:
