The challenge at the Cards Blog this week was to create a card using a handmade flower.
Intrigued by the predicted trend of crepe paper and inspired by Betsy Veldman and Julia Stainton’s use of it in Card Style (by Paper Crafts), I decided to play with some crepe paper to create a flower.
This is what I ended up with. And I even made my very first (unprofessional to say the least!) video for your crafty enjoyment. HAHA!
Here’s the card…the video (a one shot wonder) takes you through the steps of creating a flower like this yourself.
It’s over 8 minutes long though, so grab your coffee first if you want to watch it. I tried to make it short, honest!
