The papers I used are by Echo Park and the gingham is a Pink Petticoat download. I used some beautiful pink ribbon from The Ribbon Girl and the flowers and button are from my stash. The sentiment is by CC designs. The finished card is 6x6inches. I thought I would give you a step by step breakdown of how I made the card with a couple of tips along the way which you will hopefully find useful!
To make the card:
- Cut the gingham to 6x6inches to fit the card base and die cut a scalloped square from the middle of the paper which you will use to frame the image.
- Cut a piece of cream flowery paper to 14x14cm, add to gingham square, sew around the inside edge of the flower paper.
- Cut a strip of gingham paper to 15cmx5cm, top with a strip of yellow patterned paper cut to 15cmx4cm, sew around the edges and then add to the papers you layered up in step 2 with double sided tape.
- Stamp the sentiment on the bottom right of the yellow strip, wrap with ribbon and add all layers to the card base with double sided tape.
- Stamp and colour your image, die cut into a square and add to scalloped square. Add to the card at an angle. By adding the image this way, I find you are able to get other embellishments on the card without overwhelming the image and it adds a bit more interest than just adding it on straight.
- Add flowers to the top right of the image and a bow topped with a button in the diagonally opposite corner to balance the design. I always add my flowers with a glue gun to make sure they stick on hard and fast!
- Add a couple of gems, finish with glitter and leave to dry!
I will leave you with a close up of the beautiful Jasmine, coloured in with Promarkers and Flexmarkers and glittered with glitter glue.
Have a fabulous Wednesday!
