Unique, special card front with cascading flowers

Hi guys, my good friend Kanan invited me to be a guest designer on her blog in celebration of the 10th anniversary of her crafting! It's such an honor and a great pleasure. You can check out my post on her blog here:

As for the rest of the story, read on....

Recently two amazing crafters -Jennifer McGuire and Dawn from Wplus9 shared some absolutely gorgeous cards (their videos are linked below) and I had to put a little bit of my own spin on it. This is how I made my card and I love how it turned out.

Here's a closer look, with the card in action ;-)

I did make a video for this but if something seems too complicated, please comment and ask. I will be happy to share what I learned.

And in case you prefer written steps, here they are:

  1. Die cut all flowers and leaves.

  2. Ink blend and color on the flower petals and assemble the flowers

  3. Add debossing details on small flowers and assemble them.

  4. Assemble leaves.

  5. Create a top folding card base and partially die-cut an oval on the front. Trim away the sides so that the card front has only the narrow oval shape and nothing else.

  6. On the inside of the card base add interest with the Dotted Swirl die.

  7. Adhere flowers and leaves on the card front oval, having several of these elements hang off on the sides. This will create a unique card front, which is not any geometric shape.

  8. Add a white panel on the inside of the card right behind the oval front. This concealed panel will be for writing a personal message.

  9. Add a sentiment and some bling to finish off the project.
