monday's are card sharing day on the jillibean soup blog. and yesterday, i had this fun twist on a card go up.
the new sugar picks and corrugated shapes come in the cutest packaging. it's the large, thick chipboard flower shape. it's brown speckled, and the inside of the flower is a brown/white grid pattern. if you tear off the clamshell packaging from the front, very carefully, you can still use this great flower for a fun project. i decided to use it as the base of my "card".
this shows the backside of the card. this is where i would write something to whoever i was sending this card too. i traced the flower shape onto some jillibean soup pattern paper, and then cut that out and adhered it to the back of the chipboard flower. then i sanded down the edges, on both sides.
i started out by adding the striped paper to the bottom part of the flower. one of my circle cutters made the perfect sized circle, so that made it super easy. then i trimmed off the top part of the circle. i tied some of the bakers twine around where the top of the striped paper was, and added a cardstock sticker right below it. then i just started layering in fun embellishments. started with the shipping tag, which i trimmed to make it look like it was tucked under the pattern paper. then a journaling sprout, a canvas flower, a corrugated flower, a button, and some cute sugar pick pins.
