Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

July 23, 2014

Single flower

Hi Everybody,

 There are lots of different elements to this card that has been matted and layered with white and turquoise

I have made it to the  Hinged card   style using the Matting Basics A & B ... but added the hinge on the long side so that it is a landscape card

The bottom layer has been embossed with the 3-D embossing folder called Oval Accent and I have used the  Letterpress Technique   with Broken China Distress Ink

The next layer has been cut with Romantic Rectangles Two and added with foam pads to give dimension.

I have then added in another of the Tranquil Moments shapes and on top of that with the sentiment I have used the Elegant Ovals.

I bought the sentiment at a craft show and couldn't remember where it was from ... and then Karen Gibson  has very kindly left me the link to the suppliers on Facebook.  It is one in a collection called  "Say it With Flowers" from Card-io  ...  Thank you so much Karen for the link

The ribbon is some lovely soft Gingham from  Mei Flower    The flower is created from Blossoms Five and added to the flourish that is Bella Rose.

The flower has been sparkled with   Glitter Magic  and makes a really pretty focal point

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  6. Hi Christina
    Another stunning creation from you. I shall be trying the hinged card technique, when I can find the dies in stock. I love it on its side.

  7. Morning Christine,
    Love the card, but for me the rose is the wrong colour it seems to dominate the card. Sorry.

  8. Hmmmm, another comment that disappeared lol. I was saying how much I love the colors you chose, then added the highlight yellow sparkly flower! Very beautiful!!!

  9. A pretty card- again. I like the contrasting colour of the flower myself. I tried the hinge card method but I guess I need more practice as it didn't look so neat along the too!!

  10. Simply gorgeous card as always beautiful design and full of lots of lovely details x

  15. Very pretty card but not sure I like the yellow flower instead of pink or blue. Love the landscape design.

  16. Since I started following you on YouTube I'm hooked on the hinged cards so I'm glad you're feeding my addiction, Christina :). What a fantastic big yellow flower, it certainly sets off all the great layers. xx
