... and another Jane Gill class at the Glitterpot. This time making BIG flowers and she wasn't kidding! Jane showed us some examples of flowers she'd made using a giant triangle punch, a giant daisy punch and a giant sakura punch. We had the choice of which to make but all 8 of us in the class chose to make a flower using the giant sakura punch but each putting our own stamp on it by invading the shop to choose our own card and backing paper to make the flower and complete card. I chose coffee and cream colourways. I'm not totally happy with the way my flower came out but know where I can make improvements. Great class, as ever, with Jane and looking forward to the next one.
The flower was made from Bazzill card with the edges of the punched and cut shapes inked to give definition and then scored to give shape. The flower centre was made from a 1" daisy punch and a 1" circle. The black dots in the flower middle is 'Fluffy Stuff' and mine didn't turn out very well :0(. The dots were similar in size before they were heated but when they 'popped' they lost it! Think I'd use something different if I made it again. The flower ended up being a massive 5" in diameter - LOL!!
I mounted the completed flower onto an A5 card using co-ordinating backing paper and a strip of Bazzill that the flower was made from. Co-ordinating Bazzill was used to stamp the greeting on which was then cut out, edges inked and attached with foam pads. The box was also made with co-ordinating Bazzill, a window cut in the lid and acetate added. The lid was then decorated with various sized, small sakura shapes.
