Welcome to the Craft a Flower: Magnolia Blog Hop and Giveaway. This is a beautiful addition to the CAF family. If you are joining in the hop today you have just come from Therese Calvird and your next stop is Maryam Perez. If you would like more inspiration or would like to start over on the hop, please visit the Altenew Card Blog. For my project today, I used the Alcohol Ink Background paper pad from the February Release. Let me know if you like to use pattern paper when making die cut flowers.
The Craft a Flower releases are one that I look forward to every month. The realistic looks from layering paper are just amazing. For the Craft a Flower: Magnolia, I paired the new Alcohol Ink Background paper to provide even more texture to the die cuts.
The flower and leaves: The flower and leaves were made from die cutting the pieces from the Alcohol Ink Background patterned paper. I like using pattern paper for the pieces because of the added interest to the flower. The center and details of the leaves comes from Gilded cardstock.
Background: The card base was made from folding a piece of 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" paper at 2 1/8" from each side to make a gatefold card. The background is from swiping the Limestone ink cube over the paper. I repeated this technique for the belly band. I added the Mandala diecut from white cardstock to add even more texture.
