Behind the Seam's--Part 2
Here is the end result of Wednesday's tutorial on altering a spiral notebook! I also splurged and made a card to compliment my notebook.I've been wanting to use these Heidi Swapp flowers for a while, but never had the right paper to match. These flowers come in a package with approx. 12 inside and they are HUGE--a little over 4 inches in diameter. With the size of the flower being so large, I wanted to keep the rest of the design simple. I paired the flower with SU! Cameo Coral and Certainly Celery CS. The strips of cs are cut at 1/2 inch and trimmed on the sides. After attaching the flowers, I sewed the strips on to the white Bazzill CS and matted them. Now I only sewed thru the white cs because sewing thru all the layers would break my sewing needle. The lettering is cut with my Cricut and I added some Diamond Stickles to just the top layer. The ovals are cut with my nesty dies. One more shot of the card. Same directions as above! This is a regular A2 size card, however with the flower on top, it requires a 5x7 envelope. I couldn't resist though, I LOOOOVE these flowers now:) I also have these in white and tried to dye them with my SU! re-inkers, but the color does not hold well. There must be some sort of "secret" out there?
