Hi Crafters and Friends, I am back with a little more inspiration for you with card for a friend using Foamiran from 14 Craft Bar along with some Sue Wilson Dies. I do hope you are enjoying the good weather and it's not to hot for you all.
You will need:
Oil Pastels Deep Red and Purple
Small, Medium and Large Ball Tools
Foliage Dies- Here I have used Verdant Vines from Tonic
Sue Wilson Ornate Rectangles (Noble Collection)
Ivory Centura Pearl
3D Glue Gel
Step 1: Prepare your chosen layers using the ivory and burgundy cardstock. (See Photo)
Step 2: Layer onto your base card, made with Ivory Centura Pearl.
Step 3: Place the small design in the center using tacky glue. Raise the decorative layer using 3 mm foam tape or foam tabs.
Step 4: For the small accent flowers, cut 2 cm squares, you will need 5 for each flower. Shape by trimming around the 3 edges. See my previous posts for a video showing cutting and shaping.
Step 5: Repeat this for the red roses, using 3 cm squares and 4 cm squares. You will need 9 small and 4 or 5 large petals for each rose.
Step 6: Colour your petals using dark red and purple oil pastels. Don't use the purple on the larger petals.
Step 7: Use your ball tools to form a cupped petal, use the small for the small petal, medium for the medium and large for the large petal.
Step 8: Shape each of the petals at the edges, frilling and rolling the edges. Please ignore the white petal in the photo, I got carried away, the white petals only need to be cupped.
Step 9: Assemble your roses using a hot glue gun. See my previous video for the technique.
Step 10: Arrange your blooms and foliage and secure to you card using 3D glue gel.
Thanks again for joining me today, I do hope you have enjoyed the tutorial today along with the finished card. Would love to have some of your comments and thoughts, for now take care and Happy Crafting.xx
