White Chrysanthemum...

Happy Sunday,


A missed card form my recent shows last month on Hochanda using the Jessica die from the Frames and Tags collection from Sue Wilson.









To make this simple buckle card I cut dies number 1, 2 and 3 from deep cocoa foundation card.  I backed these with double sided adhesive and added silver microbeads in the spaces.  I then simply threaded these onto a strip of grosgrain ribbon and attached this over a panel embossed with the 5x7" beaded fanfare embossing folder.

Next I made up a white chrysanthemum by cutting all four dies twice.  I added one set at the outer petals by shaping them and folding them out.  I then curtailed a full set to the centre and added these in the centre to make a more realistic flower.  I added more of the silver microbeads in the centre.

Enjoy...

  26. A lovely card with a very masculine feel. Both the Jessica die and the chrysanthemum die have been on my wish list for a while. Trouble is no matter how much I buy this list never seems to go down, it just grows and grows.

  36. Hi John. What a lovely card today. I am really jealous because I thought I already had the chrysanthemum die so I didn't think about getting one when I was at Ally Pally and of course I haven't got it and I can't find one anywhere on the internet:-(
