My brother is a keen gardener and loves fresh flowers. He is a teacher and lives alone in a flat attached to his school but whenever you visit his flat there are always fresh flowers, so I decided to do a floral card for him. I have been playing with the macro setting on my camera and we have some amazing poppies at the moment, despite the rain so I based my card around one of these poppy pictures. Then I saw this weeks polkadoodle challenge and decided the two projects could be one. I have used an acetate outer sleeve and placed three flowers on here cut from matching card that have been run through the cuttlebug in the devine swirl embossing folder and then inked. The oval component is the photograph printed on photo paper, then I cut a cardboard section and attached the oval compenent half on the card half above. I had already printed the sentiment on the card prior to printing. I also distortes the image in photoshop and made a background pattern and printed this on vellum and punched the flower out which was attached to the card. The finsihed result is as can be seen in the photograph. Thank you for popping by and looking at what I have been doing.
Originally I created this blog as a diary of the learning curve of my crafting since I got my Cricut Expression. I have had two years away from crafting after a nasty car accident when I was forced off the road by a Polish articulated lorry. I am planning on expanding the scope of the blog to include die cutting and stamping as well as Cricut work and should I be lucky enough to eventually get a Brother Scan and Cut I will include that also along with any other crafting techniques I may try out.
I hope you will become a follower and I will thank you in advance for keep stopping by.
