I'm trying out a card design today that's for three different challenges.
This is what I've come up with...
...and Country View Challenges (use Kraft Card).
I've taken the colour palette from the cake (that big yellow swirl on the top made me think of a spiral flower straight away), and the layout is from the tag card... complete with the embossed white background, Kraft tag, central flourish, big flower focal point and the Dew Drop embellishments. The differences are that I've added some extra leaves (Joanna Sheen/Signature Dies, Rose Leaves) and (Memory Box, Fabulous Phlox), one small butterfly (Impression Obsession, Butterfly Die Set) and dropped the musical notes, the sentiment and the smaller flowers.
The background was embossed using a Sizzix/Texture Fades Embossing Folder (Birch Trees, Tim Holtz). The flower is also by Sizzix/Tim Holtz (Bigz Die, Jumbo Tattered Pinecone) and the flourish is from a set called 'Sweet Strawberry' (Sizzix/Thinlit).
As for the tag tie... If you look closely you'll see that it has a zigzag edge to it - just like the case on the cupcake. As for where it came from..? Let's just say it's been upcycled and I'll leave you to try and guess.
It's going to be a fun filled day here today. My daughter was still awake at 3am. Just as well we're on school holidays right now.
I haven't made a card with a large 3D flower before. If you can spare the time, I would love to know what you think.
