Framed Lace and Apricot Flowers


Thought I might go mad and post another card! This is one that I did a class for at my local craft shop last month. The lace panel is a Hero Arts stamp, Lace Frame, stamped in Versamark and embossed with white powder. The flowers are simply made using two layers of a five petaled flower shape, with a mini daisy centre. Each flower was glued onto a narrow card stalk, and then the stalks fixed together in groups of three before mounting onto the card. The leaves are also punched, and then mounted in threes to a stalk before fixing in place on the card. The vase is also a punch. The original shape wasn't quite wide enough, so I punched out a shape from card, then placed it onto a folded piece of scrap paper to use the contour to trace a wider shape. Cut out that shape and then unfolded and used as a template to draw around on the blue card for the vase. Then dry embossed with a folder before curving slightly and fixing over the bottom of the stems with silicone adhesive.
