Craft-A-Flower: Orion Geranium Project Inspiration

Today, I'm excited to be sharing a card project with our newest Craft-A-Flower set!

20211208 131024 1I'm just in love with Altenew Blends 6×6 Paper Pack – these papers make it so easy to create a gradient look with no inky mess! To start, I trimmed a few of the papers to 3″ x 6″ – a pink, a green, and also a yellow.  I then cut all of the image layers from Craft-A-Flower Orion Geranium Layering Die Set from the trimmed pieces of patterned paper. Once all of the images were cut, I adhered these together using glue tape for the larger layers, and then a little liquid glue for the flower centers.

20211208 131030 1To add a little extra to the background, I also trimmed a blue gradient paper from the same set to 2 1/2″ x 4 1/2″. This was added to a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ white card base before adding the layered die-cut images into place. I used foam tape for the flowers and a little glue for the leaves. The sentiment is from Sentiment Strips 2 Stamp Set.
