Geometric Birthday

Hi there. In between listening to the Maker Mania event happening this weekend, I have been creating a card inspired by a colour theme. Here is my card:

Onto a white card base, I adhered the most open Sizzix geo lattice die – die cut twice and layered – and then die cut that again with Concord & 9th ‘Sprout’ card stock. before removing it all from the die, I placed some ‘press’n’seal’ onto the back of it to keep all the little pieces where they should, then paper-pieced them into the white layers.

I’m glad I was in the right frame of mind to do this finicky job, and even more so when I saw it was coming together nicely.

I then replaced the centre shape – raised on 3D foam – and created my flowers.

These flowers are from Elizabeth Craft designs, and each flower has 6 or 7 layers to them. I die cut each one with a dark blue/navy card stock from my stash, and once they were glued together, I decided to run a dark blue Copic marker along the bottom edge of each piece, to create a little dimension within the flowers themselves.

I played around with their position, added stems from another floral set, and used 3D foam behind each one.

The white centre panel looked a little bare, and without adding gem stones (my current fad) I found some dots from a Concord & 9th virtual event in my stash and added them as you see, as well as stamping and adding the sentiment.

I shall be entering the following challenges:
