Abstract flower in 3 colours 6" square card - Day 74 of my 366 day challenge


Abstract flower in 3 colours 6" square card - 
Day 74 of my 366 day challenge

Hi Craft Addicts!

Another beautiful day with the sun shining through the window, so thought I would do something a bit brighter today.

Abstract flower in 3 colours 6" square cardThis card has been made entirely using dies (from a variety of companies) and I think it has turned out to be quite striking as I only used 2 main colours (and white).

I first of all used Spellbinders flower open and closed petal sets to cut out the flower in both red and white card and then layered them up offsetting the "full sets" to give it more interest.

I then cut out 3 panels in red, white and black in 2 sizes from Tonic Studios (I wish I could remember which set it was from). I glued them all together offsetting the black and white one so it gave it a shadow.effect. I then added the flower to the centre of this panel.

For the card itself, I cut off part of the front (approximately 4.5cm) and used some medium ultra strong red liner tape (or you can use glue) and covered it in Ruby red glitter from Tonic Studios' Nuvo collection. I brushed off any excess glitter afterwards.

I also cut out some diamonds in red and black using the Tattered Lace Quilt 45degree fabric cutting dies and alternated the colours and sizes on the left hand side of the card. I then placed some foam pads on 3/4 of the topper panel and placed it on the right of the diamonds so that it hung over the shorter edge. I then added 2 lots of 3 Black Nuvo crystal drops to add another dimension.
