Floral Delights

This card was made using a 8x8 card blank covered in the coordinating backing paper to the image from Joanna Sheens new From the Heart of the Garden CD Rom.  To the left hand side a border was made using coordinating Nostalgia Coordinations card stock punched using a loop punch.  This was overlayed with a further border of pink cardstock using a scalloped edge and then threaded using a ribbon punch and some white ribbon.

The main image was printed on to canvas paper and layered on to a matt of silver mirri board given dimension with pin flair glue gel.  The butterflies were decoupaged on and glittered to ensure they stood out from the image.

A tag was created to mount the sentiment on using the same cardstock as that used for the border and attached to the card using the same ribbon from the border and a silver floral brad to complete the look.

This simple 8x8 scalloped card was tinted using spun sugar distress inks, then a matt of the Mothers Day calligraphy paper was added to the card from and a layer of ruffled ribbon to the base to add texture.  A subsequent matt of silver mirri board was added to the centre of the card using pinflair glue gel and then a flat matt of the floral backing paper.  Another silver mirri matt was added with glue gel and two further flat layers of citrus green card and the base floral image From the Heart of the Garden CD Rom.

I printed a further three full images of the flower and cut them away to make a decoupaged and dimensional flower for the centre, curving it with an embossing tool before attaching with glue gel.

I hope you like these two floral cards.
