The penultimate project from my Abstract/Shapes Papercrafting Class is this pretty colour wave of yellow, orange and red small blooms.
With a Thick Very Vanilla basecard, I chose Soft Sea Foam to look like a meadow for my accent colour.
After drawing a curve and carefully cutting along it, the pieces are stuck onto a Soft Sea Foam piece leaving a gap. The gap is for the flowers to sit in later.
The flowers are cut in a range of yellows, oranges and reds using the Small Bloom Punch. So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, Bumblebee, Mango Melody, Pumpkin Pie, Poppy Parade and Real Red make my wave.
Each have a Champagne Rhinestone in the centre and the blooms are attached with Glue Dots. I find this is the best adhesive to use for attaching items like this – it is so much quicker and easier. My top tip is to arrange the flowers in the order you like before adding a Glue Dot. Then, start by adding the centre one first, and working out for an even look.
For the sentiment, I chose to use the Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set in Pumpkin Pie, cut out using the Layering Circles Dies.
This is sat on the top of a swirl of the fabulous Basketweave & Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack from the Mini Catalogue. The copper of the ribbon works well with the champagne colour of the Rhinestones.
I love being able to take projects, use the same design and make slight tweaks. Next week’s Card & (Your) Cuppa attendees may notice something very familiar when they make their project with me.
Pop back tomorrow to see the final project from this class.
