This months blog hop has the theme of the Occasions Catalogue which meant that devastatingly I HAD TO order product (yeah I know right!) so I went through over and over deciding what i was going to make my original design out of this month. In the end I chose way more than what you see used here simply because I loved so much in it. Anyway without further ado lets proceed....
If you have got to my blog the right way you should have just left Kate Benade at stop 3 and next up is Teena Maher at stop 5 which naturally makes me number 4 woop woop. Anyhoooo lol
With Valentines coming up I decided I would do a card because I don't know about you, but I love LOVE! So here is what i came up with...
The first thing I HAD to order was the flower die, everyone knows of my love of making flowers now I think lol. However when I used it I found it was just too big for the effect I was looking for for this card. How stunning is the flower though, I put in this picture just so you could see how gorgeous it is!
I still used the die I just didn't use all of it, if you look at the picture below you can see where the sponging stopped. I used my bone folder to break the fibers in the card stock to make it a little more pliable.
I then rolled the flower up, I found that the breaking up that I did was not giving the effect I wanted so I rolled every petal over backwards so it was really bent and finished rolling it up and adhered it with tombo. All up I loved the effect and LOVE the flower!
Of course there are many other gorgeous products used here and I will list them below :)
