pretty floral kanzashi...
Thursday, June 24, 2010
I did mention that Kanzashi was addictive right? I just love making these little flowers! Well, I had a look through my stash of fabric and rediscovered this cute blue and pink little floral print cotton fabric, sooo sweet and perfect for my Kanzashi flower! I decided to keep the card pretty CAS, as simple as possible for me anyway.! I love this color combo, nice n' fresh!
So, I made a little easel card for this one, not too much going on I wanted the Kanzashi flower to speak for itself. I picked out the dusky pink color in the fabric and luckily I had some matching ribbon and a few buttons in the right color.
Just a quick sentiment from Anna Griffin stamped in Rose Bud. I was surprised how well the fabric glued down to the card, I did iron it first though. Cutting straight lines in fabric was my biggest challenge!
It's much easier to get a crisp finish by using a cotton fabric and by ironing some of the folds. I did back the flower with a circle of fabric and a circle of card on top of that to give it a bit more strength. It also makes it easier to glue to the card.
