Hello everyone!!! Happy Sunday!
Today I have a vase shaped floral card to share with you! It is my reminder DT card for the latest Flower Challenge #19, the theme of which is SHAPED CARDS!
This time I have CASEd my own card. I've made this card in Summer 2015 even before I started blogging. It was for a dear friend who was expecting a baby. I fortunately took a picture before I sent it to her !
At that time I bought my Cricut and had lots of fun playing with it. The vase was cut with a svg-cutting file I made using a pattern from Birdscards.com.
I used the same vase template this time but instead of roll up roses I made two big peonies using Pop Up Peony by The Ton. (I used the cutting file for the Pop Up Peony die.)
I started by cutting the vase and the pattern with my Cricut. The vase is connected on its bottom line which is scored. Before I folded it I blended Broken China, Salty Ocean, Twisted Citron and Peacock Feather DOX on it. I cut the pattern part 4 times. I blended on two pieces of them the same colors of DOX. For the vase front I stacked the blended pattern on two cut patterns to give it some dimension. On the back of the vase I glued a blended pattern cut flat. I sprayed pearlized water on the vase for some shine and texture.
I blended the same DOX I used for the vase on the petals and added pencil strokes using Prismacolor pencils. I then sprayed Sparkle Shimmer spritz on them and let them dry.
I cut a panel which fit into the vase with my Cricut from a heavyweight white cardstock. It has a circle part on top for the flowers and a rectangular part on which you can write the message. I glued the leaves on the circular part of the panel and assembled the peonies on it. I skipped the base layer of the green peony to make it smaller.
The sentiment is from Message Me set by Clearly Besotted. I stamped it in black pigment ink on a die cut leaf I cut from a light blue cardstock using a leaf die from Large Peony4 set by The Ton. I clear heat embossed the sentiment, blended a little bit of blue and green DOX on the edge of the leaf and foam mounted it next to the peony.
I put the finished inside panel into the vase and tied a silver ribbon to close the vase. You could open the ribbon to read the inside message or simply pull the panel out.
