Is that a FABRIC flower you see? YES! That's right, CTMH will debut an awesome new line of textiles that match two of the brand new paper packs: Chantilly and For Always.
For this project, I used the new For Always paper packet and textiles.
I scraplifted the design of this card from the new How-To book, Make It from Your Heart. (For only $7.95, it is a great value and its full of ideas, patterns and cutting instructions!)
The base card is White Daisy 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". (The Value Pack is a great deal for 50 cards and envies!) The front of the card is layered with a black mat (4 1/4" x 5 1/2"), red mat (4" x 5 1/4"), and white daisy mat (3 3/4" x 5"). The For Always B&T paper (3 1/2" x 2 1/2") is layered over a black mat (3 3/4" x 2 3/4").
The banner is made by cutting the black mat base at 3 3/4", then layer the white mat and red layer which are both cut at 3 1/2". The stamp is from the upcoming February Stamp of The Month: Home Sweet Home. I stamped "Love" with Ruby Pigment ink, and then heat embossed with Clear powder to give it some shine (hard to see it in this pic, though)!
I'm entering this card into the Color My Heart: Color Dare #26, which is Black and White with a "pop" of one other color. In this case, it's Ruby!
The banner is applied with 3-D Foam Tape for some extra dimension. This tape works great, I love it!
I also added a fun and easy to make no-sew fabric flower. I cut out 4 fabric and black tulle circles at 1 1/2" each. Layer one piece of fabric with one piece of tulle and fold in half then fold in half again to form a triangle shape. Then place two of the triangles together over one half of a 1" circle and staple (I used the Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher).
liquid glass to the middle to make sure it stays put, plus it will hold any piece you want to use for the center of the flower. In this case, I used a couple of the new products, a clear acrylic flower and a pink glitter gem (make sure to look for these in the new Spring/Summer 2013 Idea Book)! I inked the edges of the fabric flower with some ruby ink using a sponge dauber, then added it to my card with more 3-D Foam tape.
It really is easy to make these....I had to make 13 of them for a team swap!
Please let me know if my project has inspired you in any way, I'd love to hear from you!!
