Here I am again! With the 3rd card in my card installment this week. I actually have 2 cards for you today. Or rather, 2 versions of basically the same card. Again I was making Thank You cards. I did a giveaway on my own blog recently and am sending a TY card to the winners with their prize, just because I want them to know how much I appreciate their bloggy support.
On to the cards- For the first one, I wasnt sure how many flowers I would need, so I just cut a bunch of them- which led to the second card! The flowers are from George and Basic Shapes, in 1" for the center and 1 1/4" for the outer part. The yellow damask background paper is from Martha Stewart's Playful Blue paper pad. (I found it at Wal-Mart a long time ago). So I cut a bunch of flowers and just started arranging them on the card till I thought it looked right. After they were arranged, I stuck them down with a glue dot, in sections. I did it that way so I could draw the stems as I went, and have them actually connect to each of the separate flowers. When I was done sticking the flowers down, I added the bow "around" the stems and put a big glob of yellow stickles in the center of each flower to finish them off.
I love that by using only a glue dot to adhere the flowers, it allowed the petals to curl up a bit and give more dimension to the card.
When I was done with the first card, I had several flowers left over- but not enough for one exactly the same. I messed around with it a bit, and ended up with this-
So there you have it. The end of my week on the blog. I hope you enjoyed my cards! See you again soon!
