Blue Flower Flip-it Card

I cut a piece of white printmaking paper with the Sizzix Circle Flip-it die.  Then I ran it through my Big Shot using a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I dusted the raised design with some distress ink.


I was inspired by the blog post of Elena Roche where she created a transparent flower so thought I'd give it a try. To create the floral center I made a flower using material from an old transparent blue duo tang which I cut with the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die.  I embossed the petals with the same embossing folder used on the card front. I used a brad to hold the petal layers together.  Using the left over cut-out of the largest petal as a stencil I added a blue silhouette with distress ink.


The flower center is a 1-inch button that I made using scrap fabric rather than the traditional paper and clear acetate covering.  I glue-gunned the button over the brad and glue-gunned the flower over the silhouette.

Great card and great idea to make the sort of shadow image with ink!

Adorable card. Love how the texture behind the transparent blue flower peeks through.
