Elegant Floral

Hello blog friends!

I have decided to use more of my old stash rather than keep buying new stuff (how long that will last I don't know).

Even though I've had the items used for this card for some time, I still have listed what they are and the brand, as some of you may have them or you might be able to track them down through the power of the internet.

I usually do fun and quirky, but this time I felt like doing something more feminine and elegant.

What you need...

Patterned paper: Expressions 12" x 12" Paper Pad - Kaisercraft
Dies: Tim Holtz Plaque & Postage On The Edge Die (656628) - Sizzix; Craft Asylum Thinlits Layering Daisy (660485) - Sizzix
Stamps: Life Sentiments (CS763) - Kaisercraft
Ink pad: Extreme Black - My Favorite Things
Punch: corner rounder
Twine: white
Button: aqua

What you do...

1 Die cut the plaque from bold floral paper and adhere to the top of a 10.5cm x 14.5cm top fold white blank.

2 Cut a rectangle of coordinating paper 5cm x 8cm and fix to the top of the blank on the right hand side.

3 Die cut the layering daisy in another coordinating paper and fix to the bottom of the rectangular panel.

4 Stamp the sentiment under the rectangular panel.

5 Wrap and tie three lengths of twine around the top of the blank.

6 Thread and tie twine through the button and stick to the centre of the flower. Round the corners of the bottom of the blank.

I got the inspiration for the layout of this blank from Retrosketches. Sadly this blog hasn't updated since 2016, but there are over two hundred sketches/layouts for you cards to choose from with some inspirational makes.

I hope you like this little make. Don't forget you can use any stamps, papers and dies from your stash.
Thank you for popping by - TTFN!
