I had a great time creating handmade flowers for my project. I love making my own flowers because I can chose the colors and textures to match my project!
Challenge #236 - Doilies). I cut the doilies first, just to see how they would fit the 8 1/4" x 8 1/4" size I chose for my project. I cut the French Pastry Doily twice out of textured ivory cardstock. The doilies look better than the "real" doilies you buy in a pack! I love that I can cut them out of any thickness or color of paper!
I used the Small Gardenia, Medium Rose, Flourish Leaf Strip, and Mini Fanciful Flourish dies to create my flower and leaf clusters. I cut all the elements from textured cardstock. I don't think I have ever made flowers from a cardstock with this much texture before! They turned out very well! There is a doily behind those flowers, but I sort of covered it up with the lovely foliage!
I love the detail on the leaves and vines! Perfect for my pumpkin-y page. I added a chipboard number, colored with black ink.
Thanks for looking! I will be back on August 29th with a new project!
