Another fun blog hop for Taylored Expressions! This month the theme was Go Green.
I’ve been looking through my mom’s decorating magazines and found one with the most lovely room done in a lively yellow-green, soft pink and bright pink with lots of white. I would show it but I am getting a migraine and just want to post quickly and go to bed.
The flower was made from 4 die shapes; I split each in 2 for an 8 layer flower. After splitting, I punched a hole, spritzed with handmade spray using Perfect Pearls and crumpled them. Then I partially dried them with my heat gun. I gently uncrumpled them and recrumpled them where I needed more creases then I continued to dry them. I flattened them just a bit and threaded them on to a long pronged brad. All that was needed was a bit of fluffing and you get the flower you see here! I used both sets of circle Nesties using 4 of the 5 smallest, excluding the very smallest.
The card is a gatefold card which made getting the ribbon on straight very easy! Once I glued on the flower, the panel underneath needed a notch cut from it so it would slip under the flower neatly so I cut a notch using an oval Nestie. I wanted foam dots under the whole panel but of course, I didn’t want the right side to stick to the card or it wouldn’t open. So I added the foam dots and punched little flowers out to place over the adhesive. This way they don’t stick to the card and it still looks nice from the other side when open.
