It’s Thursday, only one more day until the crazy weekend! Do you have big plans to celebrate the 4th? We will be watching fireworks for sure (now a priority with kids!)!
I made today’s card for my sister’s birthday. I love the flower. It is made using coffee filters!
Isn’t it awesome?! I started with the basket-style coffee filters (not the cone shaped ones), and re-inkers. First, I added a few drops of die to about 2 tsp. water (do this for each color used). Next, using a watercolor paint brush, paint your coffee filters (I used one filter per flower layer). Once they were all painted, I used my hair blow dryer to dry them out flat. Now they are ready to run through the Big Shot with the XL Flower Folds Die. Once cut, I layered them with dimensionals between some of the layers. Finish with a big button in the center. Fun and easy!
The lady bugs are from SU!’s Darling Dots set. I stamped them then colored over the head and antennae with a darker color. They are also on dimensionals.
I hope you like it!
