White Flower Card

Good evening bloggers. I hope you're all having a great Friday night.

Tonight I want to show you a card I made for my MIL, I wanted to make it a bit special for her.

I remember seeing a card awhile ago that had a huge flower on it and thought I would try to make something similar. I scoured the Internet to try to find out how to make one but couldn't really find what I was looking for. I had some white tissue paper I wanted to use so I decided to make a carnation type . I didn't fluff it up too much in the centre because I wanted to put something in it – cos I'd found the perfect button. I tied the flower with dental floss and had left long ends so I threaded these through the button to keep it tight and used a glue dot to keep it in place.

I used one of my new embossing folders on some plain white card, pierced a hole in the centre, threaded the dental floss through this and stuck it at the back. On all the raised dots I stuck some gold peeloffs and some flat-backed pearls (to match the button).

The Happy Birthday sentiment was stamped with gold ink and heat embossed.

So here it is – I hope you like it. I have to admit I'm quite proud of this one.


I made a box for it out of gold card but the pictures didn't turn out very well so you'll just have to imagine that part.
