All Occasion Card

Hi Crafters and Friends, Great to be with you again today with a little more inspiration using Foamiran and accessories from 14 Craft Bar. For the past week I have been busy making Christmas Cards, it looks like the colour schemes for this year are going to suit me down to the ground. My card today is made with a colour combination I adore, I just love all shades and tones of blues and combining them with white really set them off. I have included Poinsettias and my favourite roses, I do hope you will take a look. I have deliberately left the card sentiment free, as this card could quite easily suit any occasion.

You will need:
Blue Foamiran 015 Navy  (Also in the Winter Set)
White Foamiran 001 White (Also in the Winter Set)
Dark Green Foamiran 021 (Also in the Irish Set)
Glue Gun
PVA Glue
Sue Wilson Lavish Accented Octagon
Sue Wilson Double Stitched Octagon
Sprigs/Twigs dies or similar
Blue Card
White Card

Step 1: Cut a selection of rose petals from 2.5'' x 2.5'' & 3'' x 3'' Squares.

Step 2: Shape you petals, cupping them and frilling the edges as shown in my last video. (Here is the link)

Step 3: Cut a selection of Poinsettias  in blue and white foamiran.

Step 4: Roll and twist them and leave for 10-15 mins.

Step 5: Unfold and straighten very slightly.

Step 6: Assemble your flowers, edge them with PVA and add some clear or AB glitter to give a frosty look.

Step 7: Cut and Mount your chosen card layers.

Step 8: Layer your card pieces onto an 8 x 8 card base. Here I have used Silver white Centura Pearl.

Step 9: Arrange your flowers and secure them in place. Your card is now finished and ready to add your chosen sentiment.
And a close up of the blooms:
