I Must Have Flowers Always and Always: Carta Bella Farmhouse Market Card Folio
Hello Friends! I Must Have Flowers always and always! Do you feel that way? I’m not much of a gardener, but I do love pretty floral papers and paper flowers on my projects. This sweet little springtime card is made with the new Carta Bella Farmhouse Market Papers and some beautiful rolled roses from Little Birdie Crafts.
I Must Have Flowers…and Pretty Pretty Ribbons, too!
Light Coral Diamond Satin Ribbon is absolutely dreamy with this paper collection. I’ve paired it up with some Iridescent Metallic String in the bow cluster. The way this string reflects the colors that surround it is absolutely magical!
And how about those flowers? These lovely Layla Pastel Palette blooms are so pretty! Did you know you can alter your Little Birdie Flowers? First, I gently tapped the edges with a little Gathered Twigs Distress ink. Then I brushed on some Stamperia Gold Dew Glamour Gel to add a touch of sparkle. You can also brush them with Perfect Pearls or any mica based powder. The subtle shading and shine adds to the vintage feel of this pretty card.
I Must Have Flowers: A Peek Inside
Turn this pretty card into a gift by adding a couple of pockets on the inside. Fill the top pocket with a color matched tea bag, note card, and decorated honey stick.
Decorate a pretty bookmark with Coral Rose Swiss Dots Satin and Petal Peach Quatrefoil Satin Ribbon. Stitch the paper bookmark pieces onto some canvas to make a soft bookmark that will last a long time. This is a stamp that I’ve had in my stash for a very long time. Sadly, it has been discontinued. But you could always print the sentiment out on your computer and add to the bookmark that way.
I hope I’ve shared some tips, tricks and ideas you can use in your own crafty adventures. If so, I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.
