Ornate and elegant flower in Kraft card DL landscape - Day 79 of my 366 day challenge

Ornate and elegant flower in Kraft card DL landscape - 
Day 79 of my 366 day challenge

Hi Craft Addicts!

I have to say that I really like the "monochrome" effect of this card and had been wanting to make it for some time but only really decided how I wanted it last night!

Ornate and elegant flower in Kraft card DL landscapeI had cut out the flower which is the Tattered Lace Opulent Over the Edge die in Kraft card and wanted the main flower to be highlighted in white, so I stuck the die-cut onto some white card and cut round it so that only the petals showed the white.

I then used a white Kuretake Woodcraft marker and highlighted the other petals so they stood out too. As I mentioned earlier, I wanted this to be mainly kraft coloured and so cut the border strip (again a Tattered Lace die - this time the Essentials Pearl border strip in a paler kraft colour (you can get different shades from Craft Creations here ).

This die allows you to make your own choice as to how wide the strip which is really useful. I then glued the solid part of it to the main card in the centre and stuck the flower on the left hand corner at an angle so it fitted.

I thought it was a bit "bare" so added a strip of hessian to the right hand side - I haven't put a sentiment on the front of the card but one could be easily added to it. I did however, make an insert using some cream paper and cut it to size. I then embossed a "Happy Birthday to you" sentiment (from DoCrafts Papermania) in gold on to it and stuck it inside using tape.

And there you are, one striking (in my opinion) but fairly easy card to make. You can buy this on my website here   I think it will make a lovely card to give to someone!
