Happy Wednesday everyone!
Busy week here. We are getting ready for a short weekend trip to Michigan so crafting has been minimal for me, but since Mother's Day is coming up soon, I figured I could make my needed cards and bring them along. And since these cards don't need to be mailed, there is no holding back on dimension and details!
Oh boy! I keep looking at this card wondering if I really made it! I just can't get over how beautiful it turned out! Everything meshes so well together, there are so many details...it's all just so perfect!
Ok...I'll show you :)
I've longed to do large dimensional flowers on my cards but because they don't mail very well...I've avoided them for the most part. But these flowers were so fun to put together! I used my cricut to cut them all out from the Mother's Day Bouquet cartridge. I inked up all the edges with purple, used an embossing tool to round up the edges and then staggered all the layers. The centers are all spiral roses. I had different plans for those, but when I tested what they would look like in the center of the large flowers...done deal :)
I made a bunch of my own quilled up white roses to use as fillers in the arrangements. Used some punches for the foliage behind everything. The center is cut out of the card with my circle cutter. I cut a frame from the Lacy Labels cartridge to decorate the opening so it wasn't so boring.
The Mother's Day sentiment is a digital stamp I forgot I had in my stash, and the swirlyness of it seemed perfect for this card!
