Moxie Fab Repetition Challenge


How is everyone? I've been super busy, but i finally had a little time to make a couple cards today, one just in time for one of Moxie Fab's Challenges: Repetition. It ends tonight! I'll be showing another project tomorrow and hopefully another one later the week if i can find the time to make the card!! :)

My repetition is the 3 flowers, you know the rule of 3 and all that! And as i was assembling the card i first started with the cardbase horizontal, but i thought that was kind of expected so i flipped it vertical.

I curved the flowers down to draw your eye to the sentiment, which i stamped in black.

I made the flowers from some crepe black satin, in a nice wine color. They are super easy to make! Everything is cut by hand, no patterns! For these flowers, i used the wrong side which is matte.

 First cut a strip of fabric, wider the strip, bigger the flower. Then i cut the strips into squares (roughly). Next i just cut circles from each square, which are no ware near perfect!

Next light a candle and hold each circle up to (but not touching) the flame. It will melt and curl the edges, the edges then turn a nice black color. I think that is the fabric, its not from burning! But don;t hold it too long or it will catch on fire! :)

I made each flower with 3 layers. To adhere each layer, i made a hole with a tiny hole punch, then used a brass brad to hold each layer together.

Last i used some green cardstock and made some leaves for each flower.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
