Hi everyone! Thanks so much for following my blog here for a few years. I decided to move my blog to it’s own url, so I would love it if you would follow me at my new location: Dinglefoot’s Crafty Blog. See you over there! 🙂
Remember the daisy from last week? This week, I took it, and along with a very few other pieces, I made a fun birthday card for someone later this week :). The brown pieces are embossed and matted onto glitter cardstock. I also cut a swirl from a Cricut Cartridge, and the whole thing went together very easily and quickly. See the video below for complete instructions. Thanks so much for stopping by!
It can be tiresome sorting through jars and packages of flowers, only to find that you don’t have any that are the perfect color for your project. Why not make your own? It’s not as hard as it looks. You will always need some sort of flower die cuts for the petals, and then something for the center, and perhaps a few leaves. The flower I’m showing you this week has 3 plain daisy shaped die cuts for the petals, and then 4 spiky sun shapes for the middle — you could also substitute a smaller flower for the center. Ready to do this? You’ll be amazed how easy it is!
Ok, so I need to quit making my projects sideways (camera set up isn’t great), and late at night lol! My ribbon is kind of skewed in a couple of places, but you get the idea and you can make yours straight :). I found my glitter paper that I like, then went to see if I had any ribbons to match the colors, and came up with several. Then I punched flowers from the glitter paper and put rhinestones in the centers. My tag was made by stamping and then cutting around the image, and matting it onto the dark brown paper. The base card is also dark brown, and the embossed paper is Kraft paper, the same as the tag. Thanks so much for stopping by!
