Winter Mixed media Card by GDT Vinita Jain

Hello everyone!

It's December already now and time to say goodbye to the Year 2017 and welcome the coming year!

This time I am presenting a simple but an elegant card as an inspirational post!

Presenting a true beauty of the Season with all joy and festivity! It is in Traditional colors with a lot of theme challenge elements like stars, glitter, snow! Check out the challenge here.

I started by choosing the wooden papers from Papericious, distressed the edges. Applied vintage photo DI on all 4 sides and lay them on a Kraft CS. For the focal panel, At the bottom added a crochet lace and tied a golden string with a pipe cleaner.
Die cut some pine boughs leaves out of green glittered sheet, added some pom-poms, star buttons, rose mulberry flower along with glittered leaves.

Now at the top, I added a big jute flower along with 2 more small jute flowers and decorated them with adding different leaves, pom poms, string.

Now die cut star shape from glitter and burlap sheet and added the star-shaped chipboard on it and created all the layers. Love the intricate design of star showing all the layers!

To finish it up added some snow paste a and crystal clear powder.
Love the snowy and frosty look! Don't you!!!

Shabby Chic Card with Handmade Flowers By GDT Kriti

Namaste Everyone!!

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.

Here is the final card
