Sooo.. as promissed... here's another little workshop for you all!!! I'd love to challenge YOU to create a card following this workshop, post it on your blog or somewhere else and add a link to your card in the comments section of this post at latest on Monday June 23rd!!! I'll pick one random winner on Tuesday June 24th (when I'm back from my vacation) who will receive a fun fun RAK. Can't wait to see what you come up with!!! (unfortunately the pics are not as good as normally as the weather was really grey at the moment I was preparing my workshop)
Needed: Piece of white cardstock in any size you want, 1 square, 1 small strip and 1 tiny strip of patterned paper, 1 large and a small circle of patterned paper, 1 handcut flower, 1 clear button, a piece of floss, chipboard alphabet, 1 safety pin, 1 large stickpin, 3 tiny Prima flowers, glitter, 3 Jewels, staples, Puffy Paint (or another kind of 3d paint) and if possible a sewing machine to stitch without thread on the borders of the cardstock and patterned paper.
Get the piece of white cardstock in front of you and fold it in half. Then cut a small strip off the front of the card and add the small strip of patterned paper to the inside part of the card (that way this piece is shown when closing the card). Distress the edges with some black ink.
Add the square of patterned paper to middle of the front of the card and layer the tiny strip on top of it (to the upper left part, as shown)
Then adhere the circle of patterned paper to the middle of the square (on top of the tiny strip of patterned paper)
Take the handcut flower in front of you and start layering it with the small circle of patterned paper, the clear button (with floss through the holes) and the safety pin (as shown) Don’t mind the glue that is showing through the button.. I didn’t had time to wait until it dried entirely.. hehe…
Add the layered flower to the upper right part of the front of card and make it “hang” over the edge a little bit (that way it “flies” in the air a little bit when opening the card).
Adhere the 3 Prima flower to the lower left part of the circle and add jewels to the middle of the flowers.
Adhere the title of the card (Chipboard and/or rubons) to the circle (or anywhere you want..)
Put some glue on the borders of the petals of the flower and add some glitters to it to give it a glittery look. And add some staples as well.
- Add a large stickpin to the button.
- Add some Puffy Paint/3d paint dots around the circle (as shown)
Oh.. I know some of you are wondering how I'm creating the handcut flowers on my cards/layouts, well I'm having different templates made of cardstock laying on my scraptable. I draw them on the back of my patterned paper and hancut them afterwards. To help you guys a little bit I've scanned some of them!!! (I have them as a JPG file too overhere in my computer.. if you want me to send them to you.. just let me know)
Have fun creating while I'm gone!!
