This is my final card for my Card Captain week – and I think I’ve saved the best ’til last (well, it’s my favourite anyway :)). I’ve called it Triple Flower for the obvious reason – there are three of the large Cloisonné Flowers on it.
I’m not very good at planning ahead so it sort of evolved as I worked on it with no clear direction. No great details on the photos this time, I’ve described it below instead for a change.
I used some heavy dark silver card for the base and a piece of white card on top. I firstly die-cut the flower shape from the upper left using the matching die and then stamped the flower 3 times, once on the main card topper (with part of it missing, of course, due to the hole I’d just cut ;)); once on a spare piece of white card and once more on the die-cut piece from previously.
All three images were then coloured with ProMarkers and the ladybird stickers put in the middle of them and covered with Glossy Accents. The three small pearls on the left are partly to cover the hole left by the die – I did have a ‘washing line’ type of thing going on between the two holes but decided I didn’t like it after all.
I drew around the metal die on some of the same card as the base to make a larger flower and glued the die-cut one onto that, dotted around the outside with a gold pen and then attached it with 3D foam pads to raise it above the rest.
The flower on the spare card was lined-up below the aperture making sure the orientation matched the other two…….why? I don’t really know, just decided it was important somehow ;). I paper pierced all round the outside of the white card after it was glued on and added the peel-off border just to finish it all off.
