Hi! Julia kindly swapped with me- so I'm afraid you've got me today!
I thought I'd have a go at creating something really rather dimensional- a flower vase of a different sort!
The card started out as the gorgeous 3D diamond shape from Waffleflower
Now this does need a little fiddling with- best advice- use some lightweight card and check out this video that helps with assembling. Don't do as I did and use a 250gsm weight card for my first attempt- you'll not love the process!
It is however absolutely gorgeous once assembled- and once you've done it once (ha!), you'll find the next one much simpler. It's like any new skill- you need a little practice to begin with!
You can see the dimension on this photo- if you die-cut two out and stick them together, you'll have a complete jewel and they'd be so cool hung off a tree at Christmas or a trendy gift tag for a present.To make the whole card, I used another Waffleflower set; Loved
Just cut out the flowers after you've stamped with ink and then added detailing with Prismacolors and a gel pen.
Yes, I know. That's not going to fit a standard envelope anytime soon. If you're sending a gift through the post, then this could fit in easily and indeed, no problems if you're hand delivering it. Isn't going the extra mile sometimes what is required?!!
