Beautiful Friend

Wednesday, December 14, 2011

I seem to be so short on time these days, I realized I hadn't made a flower for ages. I forgot how much I love making them. For this one I used Spellbinders Rose Creations dies and paper from Lost and Found Market Street from My Mind's Eye.

I mixed up a few different flower tutorials to make this flower, I'll do up a little tutorial as soon as I can. I made it a little bit shabby by sanding some of the tips of the petals. It seemed to work better after I did that! The petals are made from mint felt, I die cut the leaves from the same Spellbinders Rose Creations set.

I made the frill using one of the Spellbinders Edgeabilites sets, I loosely pleated it, punched some holes along the top and threaded some twine. Patterned paper is from Pink Paislee Nantucket Collection.

The sentiment is from Beautiful Lace by Layers of Color. I love this font! It's just so elegant! All the edges have been inked with Antique Linen Distress Ink.

Ok see you tomorrow with my CASE Study card! I hope you're nearly all ready for Christmas! I'm not!
