I'm using a product with which I haven't had much experience, the Solid Colored Paper Flowers. I thoroughly enjoyed working with them and can't wait to try again on another project.
For my card today, I used the White and Light Pink flower packs. They come in packs of 40 in three different sizes. For the flower centers, I used the Amber 10mm Silver Edged Brads.
These flowers stand out beautifully against the turquoise blue of this card-in-a-box "mason jar". Mason Jars remind me of homespun goodness; so I thought it was a perfect backdrop for this Mother's Day card.
I sponged the flowers to add a little depth to them. Yellow in the centers of all and pink on the outer edges of the pink flowers...the ridges in the paper flowers take the color beautifully. I used the medium and small flowers to make white flower in the back and the large and medium on the pink flower in the foreground.
I wanted small flowers to accent, so I tried using a punch on the petals of the largest flower. They cut beautifully! I didn't have small, single rhinestones for the centers of the small flowers, so I cut a few from the Clear Swirl Bling after coloring them with a Copic marker to match the larger stones.
For the sentiment, I made something very simple using the Alex Brush font in gray to match the lid.
That's it for today. Thanks for joining me! See you next Saturday!
