CAD is over now, but here are two more samples I made using Shelly’s flower for Customer Appreciation Days (CAD) at Paperthreads.  For the first flower I used a stitching template (Quickutz), which is the metal circle you see, and stitched the flower and border with embroidery thread.  I kept the flower as the focal point and added silk ribbon as my finishing piece.

For this card I made a fabric flower and  used fabric bond (for iron ons).  I left the paper backing on and cut it with the Gazelle (I used the regular blade).  It cut beautifully.  I cut two more flowers, one being slightly larger, and crumpled the smaller one.  I put the smaller, crumpled flower under the fabric flower so it wouldn’t lay completely flat.  I love dimension in my projects and this was a good solution.  I used Nesties to cut the mat in the same fabric and added a few layers and feathers to complete the card.  Thanks for stopping by!
