Happy Monday everyone, hoping you all had a wonderful week end.
Today I am sharing a layout and card set created using Kaisercraft's Sea Breeze collection.
The photo I have used is of my mother taken last year in the wonderful gardens at a local restaurant. Sometimes I forget I actually have other family members I can scrap and not just my children!
I wanted to create a classic layout.
Of course I had to fussy cut the flowers from the Waterlilly paper and layered them, adding in leaves and using foam tape on the top flowers. I wanted the floral arrangement to cascade from the upper left corner. I hand punched a butterfly and attached with foam tape. I also added some enamel dots to the large flower centre, butterfly and the printed swirl.
I used the smaller floral paper to create a border frame. As you can see I have sewn in a messy fashion around the frame.
I chose the journal card that had the sentiment I wanted to go with the photo of my mother. I then set about adding layers around my photo using the tag die cuts, stickers and paper strip. I then sewed in a messy fashion around the photo.
Here are some close up photos.
Here I have foam taped the fussy cut flowers and butterfly.
I have sewn on each of the leaves to add more texture.
I have added pearls to emphasis the printed swirls and added a larger one in the centre of the largest flower.
I have continued with sewing in a random manner around my photo matt ad tags.
This collection is perfect to create cards and I just couldn't throw out the gorgeous left overs from the layouts.
I have used a 2Crafty butterfly frame on this card which goes perfectly with the floral/vintage theme of this card.
The green flower die cut contrasts beautifully against the script word paper. I have foam taped the flower die cut, hand punched a butterfly from black bazzill and added a green word sentiment die cut. To finish off I have sewn around the edge, on the butterfly and word sentiment. I wanted to create a 'modern' look.
The circle sentiment die cuts are great for cards, layer them on contrasting paper and add some sewing and you have a quick and easy handmade card and everyone loves receiving a handmade card!
Well that is the last of my paper creations using KC Sea Breeze.
