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!
