Flower Card by Sherry Cartwright
I love to use sketches for inspiration. Usually I toss and turn, flip and flop them, but I created my card very closely to this sketch by Page Maps.
I adore flowers of all kinds, especially paper. I knew I wanted the focus from the sketch to be a circle and flower. With that in mind, I set out to create a flower with layers of loveliness. The base of the flower is a simple punched scalloped circle in white cardstock. I topped it with a fancy frill border sticker in polka dots. I adhered the beginning of the sticker onto the paper base, then in between each scallop in the border, I creased and tucked it to a circular shape to create petals of my flower. I punched various circles for the flower center, then topped with a boutique button tied with doodle twine.
Leaves were simply cut from Petite Prints in grasshopper green and added a couple of rhinestones to mimic dew drops.
Card base is simply white cardstock, with a layer of white cardstock punched with notebook paper trim at the top and pink patterned cardstock at the bottom. I freeform machine stitched a few circles in the area I planned to place the flower. It adds detail without being too overwhelming. All was placed on a white cardstock base with a red paper ribbon. Here are a couple more flowers I made using the fancy frill stickers. What a clever and pretty way to use those borders!
