a handmade flower card

When i went to the nec in november i saw meiflower do a demo on making these lovely flowers, so i thought "that looks like fun"
You had to used waxed cord and a button as you can see and keep making loops and stick the pieces down with sticky tape,
Here is my efforts...
I am entering this into a few challenges as well
  1. Allsorts ~ saving nature ( old button was cut off from a jumper)
  2. Totally gorgeous ~ as you like it ( i am a crazy fan of ribbon)
  3. Crafty catz ~ flowers
  4. Paperplay ~ layer it up (the flower is in 3 layers and the card is in 3d too)
  5. Tip top ~ fabulous flowers

To make this card i used

  • kanban patterned card made into a a5 card blank
  • stampin up gross grain ribbon
  • card candy
  • liac card stock
  • waxed cord in black and purple
  • old button from ruined jumper
  • oval scallop and plain nesties
  • brilliance purple pearlescent ink
  • clear glitter sakura pen

Id like to remind folks about my birthday candy as well, i have extra sponsored prizes too,please check out this post for details
