Have you been crafty this week? I haven't really been too crafty. I would like to be but we just haven't had the time to get downstairs. I have some great projects on my desk but no time. I hate it when that happens!
Today I want to bring you a Start to Finish project today. One of the sketches that I made for Burlap and Buttercups was for a card. I love to use my pattern paper scraps on my cards. This card used a bunch of it!
So for my starting point- I always start out with a sketch that I make. For my card I decided that I wanted to change up the basic sketch and make my paper strips into different sizes of triangles. I am really into the ray look and the unevenness it gives.
Use a scrap piece of cardstock that is the exact same size as your card. Using a ruler draw your lines and the pattern you want.
I like to keep the pattern piece along with the white piece together and in order so that I know how I will arrange them.
Now it is time to put the pattern pieces and arrange them on your card.
To make the flower- Start with 2 or 3 different sizes of scallopped circles. Cut them in the same or different pattern paper.
To give the flower a bit of dimension, roll the paper in little balls.
Unfold the flowers and put pop dots in between the layers. I added a button for the centerpiece, but you could also add a brad or anything else.
Supplies- April kit from Burlap and Buttercups
paper from lily bee, jillibean soup
button- jillibean soup
twine- the twinery
stamp- hero arts
ink- hero arts
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed my Start to Finish on my card. I am taking the day off tomorrow, but I will be back on Friday with another new layout. See you then! Have a wonderful and crafty day!
