Hello blogger friends!
Well hasn't the weather turned wet and cold all of a sudden? Well, it has in South Gippsland anway! All the more reason to hibernate indoors and get my craft on, I think. Here's a card I have been busy working on this week for Cardmaking Online. It features beautiful 3D roses and a matching frame from the 3D Die-Cut Studiolight Frames 1 set.
This 3D decoupage set comes with two die-cut frames and two sets of die-cut flowers, so you can get two projects out of the one sheet. Given the individual pieces are die-cut they are very easy to punch out can be transformed into beautiful 3D toppers in a matter of minutes.
Here's what the original decoupage sheet looks like:
This sheet is quite versatile - I used the round frame and coordinating 3D flowers to make a Mother's Day card for my first project for Cardmaking Online a few weeks ago.
To make the above card I embossed the C6 pink base card using the cArt-Us Flower Branches embossing folder and coloured the embossed design using an American Crafts metallic gold ink marker. I then applied a light coating of gold Ranger Perfect Pearls to the inked design to add a little shimmer. Once this dried I adhered a length of maroon grosgrain ribbon to the centre of the card and adhered two lengths of gold satin ribbon to both sides of the maroon ribbon (refer photo above for placement).
The 3D flowers were assembled to the base flower image using small foam squares and using a paint brush and a little water I applied gold Perfect Pearls to highlight the yellow/gold areas of the flowers as shown below.
I cut around the inside of the frame to separate the frame from the base flower image and foam-mounted the frame to the centre of the card then adhered the 3D flower inside the frame using double-sided tape.
If you're interested in making this card you will find step-by-step instructions and a product list on the Cardmaking Online blog.
