Hello Crafty Friends! Hope you are doing well and having a fabulous day! I’m back once again with a card for the Waffle Flower September challenge, week one, which is leaves! For this project, my leaves focused on the Waffle Flower Sprigs Die set! So let’s get into the details!
To begin the project, I picked out one leaf from the WF Sprigs Die set and cut it twice from six different colors of cardstock from The Stamp Market. I then used the WF Big Dots Die to cut a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock.
Once the Big Dots panel was cut, I attached a panel of acetate using glue. Then I began the tedious task of placing foam tape on the back of the panel, so as to create a shaker card. I placed foam tape around all of the edges and in between each row of dots. I cut another panel of Neenah 110lb to use as the backer, and I poured my cute little pink shaker bits in the wells. Once I removed all of the backing from the foam tape, I carefully laid my cardstock backer atop that.
For the sentiment, I stamped the Happy Birthday, which is from the WF Big Dots Sentiments, using VersaFine Onyx Black Ink and heat embossed it using Ranger Clear Embossing Powder. I stamped and embossed it two more times, but using VersaMark ink for those. I trimmed that down and adhered it to the center of the panel using foam tape.
Next, I began arranging the leaves around the sentiment in rainbow order and gluing down just the bottom portion of each leaf, while tucking the next leaf underneath it, making my way around the sentiment. I thought this card could use a little addition of gold, so I chose another leaf from the WF Sprigs Die set and cut that five times from mirror gold cardstock. I adhered those around along with some PinkFresh Studio Gold Metallic Pearls. Everything was then adhered to the card base, which is also Neenah 110lb.
That finishes up this project! I hope you enjoyed it, and I’ll hope you hop over to the Waffle Flower Challenges and join the September challenge! Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!
