I just love how well green and purple go together! Just a quick card to share featuring some more of my current favorite rick rack flowers....the card is loosely based on Card Patterns sketch #165.
Have a great weekend!
I made this for www.Lulupu.com's DT call. If you are a paper crafter in India and haven't heard about www.lulupu.com then you are seriously missing something.......it is a great place to shop for almost all international big brands in craft supplies.......do check it out....you can also participate in the DT call which ends on May 15th....the details can be found here.
This card is inspired by this card by Khushboo, who is DT member at Lulupu.
I've made it for my mum I do feel I have overdone this card a bit, I guess it could have done without a couple of elements....well never mind I hope my mum likes it (she is quite critical of my work!)
The chevron background is handmade, the tutorial can be found here.
Hi, this is Juhi and I am going to show how to make these layered flowers.
This tutorial is also available here.
I get a lot of queries from non-regular crafters on how to make and embellish cards for their loved ones......so I decided to post a tutorial on how make handmade flowers using material which is easily available at home. These flowers can be made in less than 5 minutes and require no fancy craft tools or supplies!
1. Thick handmade paper/cardstock ( I used a wedding invitation envelope).
4. Stapler (optional)
5. Something for the flower center - buttons/half cut pearls/beads.....
6. Paint brush or a pen - this will be used to roll the flower petals
Roughly cut out 3 circles of different sizes (my biggest circle has a 2 inch diameter).....these circles don't have to be perfect (mine are freehand).....I have used the printed side of the wedding invite to add some color.
Give 6-7 equally spaced radial cuts on the circles. be careful not to cut till the center but slightly less than that. These will be the flower petals
Roll the petals around the end of a paint brush or pen.
Stack the rolled layers and staple in the center.
Make the flower center with a button/half cut beads or whatever you like and your flower is ready! Increase or decrease the number of layers to get bigger or smaller flowers.
I hope this was easy enough.....do lemmi know if it was not!
Thanks for visiting!
I am so happy with this card.......the entire card is made with old wedding invites (even the cardstock base).......my parents being college professors get invited to a lot of weddings.......whenever I visit them I bring back tons of wedding invites which I usually use to die-cut flowers, swirls etc.
As I don't have a die-cutting machine these days I decided to make my own blooms from the invites.......they were very easy to make (i kept the printed side up....love the effect!).
