Who says flowers can't be mint-green gingham!?! I think they're great fun! I created this card for The Gingham Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. Cath Edvalson, Editor and Giver of Moxie Fun Challenges asked us to create a project featuring gingham.
To begin, I made a card base with dusty-purple cardstock. I cut and adhered a panel from the gingham and another panel from the dusty purple. I used two different flower punches - one from Fiskars, one from EK Success. I made the fronds with a Martha Stewart punch. I freehanded the vase cutting it from white cardstock. To give the vase some dimension, I heat embossed an Inkadinkado doily on it in white. I stamped the doily just slightly off-center to add to the illusion of roundness. I used letter brads as the flower centers. Then to add balance to the card, I added a frond near the bottom-right.
Do you have a great idea using gingham? You can play along too. Check out the rules here:
