Concertina Flowers

Hello Again,

Told you I’d be back! lol

I cased a magazine article to make this card. It was designed by Jane Clark and published in the Australian Cardmaking Stamping & Papercraft Vol 17 No 4.

I fell in love with the flower and they were so easy to make! A little concertinaed paper, a staple, some glue and some stamens. I cut my own leaves out and dotted gems all over. The stem is made from gems as well. The background paper is from a Kaiser 6” paper stack called Tea at Elsie's. The flower paper is from K & company mat pack called Abrianna.


P1020395
The Happy Birthday is a gold Rub On and it’s been added to my Stampin Up Punched shapes – oval on scallop oval. A little satin ribbon to finish.


Here's a close up of the flowers - such a simple idea and yet they're really effective and dimensional.



This card is perfect for the challenge of Handmade Flowers at the Creative Card Crew !


The Play Date Cafe has a colour combination of Navy, Leaf Green & Bubblegum for challenge 95 – I guess 2 out of 3 aint bad! lol.


Hope you like it – I had fun making it Smile

Never seen anything like this before it is so lovely. Such a nice 3 d effect. I like the way you have made the lower part of the flowers and so creative to use the gems as stem and leaves
Cheers
