On Saturday it snowed. I had hoped that the weather would be pleasant enough to allow me to go outside and work in the garden, but no, the cold and the snow forced me to stay inside. So I spent part of the afternoon at my craft table, sipping a coffee and playing with some pretty flower paper.
Here is the card that I made:
This paper is fairly busy, but rather than just put it on the front of the card in one piece (like I often do with busy paper - see here), I cut it in strips and then placed them on the front of the card slightly apart from each other. This is a technique that I saw used over at Paper Owl; Cassie is an amazing card designer and when I saw her card I knew I wanted to make my own. It was a bit painful to line everything up evenly, but worth it - I really like how my card looks.
So still no flowers in the garden, but pretty flowers on the front of a card. Not a bad compromise.
How was your weekend? Did you spend time crafting?

What a beautiful card! I think the addition of the green button is my favorite part. I've never thought to do that! It gives it such a fun feel, and really adds to it. Thanks for the inspiration!ReplyDelete
