Now onto my cards, Yes there are so many flowers, I could not stop at one.

The first one is a tri-shutter card. Here is the tutorial.

P1030626It opens to this

P1030627I have used several Fred she Said flowers on it. The background paper is Summer Roses, the pink paper is from my scrap. I have used the pre colored rose spray surrounding the sentiment from the and the individaul roses colored in copics from the rose spray and candle and my favorite ornate butterflies. Everything is distressed with distress inks and the sentiments are from MFT- cheerful blessings and Chalkboard greeetings inked with MFT ink. I have lately been on a sequins kick, love the look so I added a few. I can’t believe that I have had them forever and have not been using them. The roses have stickles on it, the butterflies have pearls and I added some ribbon and a button. The main sentiment also has liquid pearls in lavender lace. Oval was cut with Spellbinders Dies.

P1030624and her it is all laid out flat

P1030628The next card is a bendi fold card. Here is the tutorial.


This looks awesome in real life. I have used Fred She said flowers again, I used the pre colored New Happy flowers, sized them to 1/2 inch and used a emboss stylus to round them added distress inks on the sides to bring them out. Isn’t the Background fabulous, it is a FRED SHE SAID background, one Tracey threw in for free when you get the Wedding Emma, love it. Just size it what you want, here I have one that is 1.5 x 4.2; 5.5 x 4.5 and 3.5 x 4.2 and then cut as needed.  I added some grass with prisma pencils, added some lavender stalks with pencils, added some sequins to the middle and again sequins, told you it is just fun. I added ribbons near the slits to make it neat and added again the ornate butterflies, all colored with copics and distress inks.

here it is open one layer, I know the back needs to be neater, I am going to add a backing to it all.

P1030634and here it is open all the way. Isn’t Emma and the butterfly so sweet, she is colored with copics, sentiment is MFT again inked with MFT inks. Sequins, happy flowers, ribbon and ornate Butterflies.
