Shabby Chic Card with Handmade Flowers By GDT Kriti
It's Kriti here sharing a Mixed Media card with some handmade flowers. This is an inspiration for our ongoing challenge Blooms Magic. A Sneak peak
I have used Fairyland collection from Papericious. These papers are gorgeous with lots of flowers, fairies, butterflies and few sheets of die- cuts and sentiments.
I took an ivory cardstock of size 6" x 4.5 ". Then took two beautiful contrast papers from the pack, distressed the edges and layered onto the cardstock. After that fussy cut some butterflies, leaves, flower and a fairy. Also put a sentiment from the sheet matching the theme of the card.
Now the best part, I made some handmade flowers also to embellish the card. Have a look...
I have a tutorial for you all for these simple yet elegant flowers.
Tutorial for Flower
1.Cut a circle from a paper. starting at the outside edge, cut a spiral towards the centre. Slightly zig- zag the edges will create a more natural looking flower.
2. Beginning from the outside, tightly wrap the paper, rolling towards the centre.
3. Next release the coil so that it will grow.
4. When you get to the end, you will have a little round part.Put a little glue on it and press to adhere the coiled paper. Aren't these paper roses are cute.
I made these to embellish my card but they can be used for so many things! Also cut two leaves with Prima dies to make these flowers a complete look.
