Hello everyone! It's time for another "3-D Wednesday" with My Creative Time. The goal is to challenge yourself by making a 3-D project . . . anything besides a card or layout.
For my project today, I came up with a little bit of a different way to give a gift card:
All of the pattern papers for this little bouquet are from the Creative Imaginations ~ Dots & Stripes : Warm 6x6 paper pack. I tried to pick out some colors to match the little Starbucks Gift Card. So cute . . . I just LOVE how it turned out.
These super terrific flowers are cut with the brand new My Creative Time ~ Flower Petals Die. This die was in the new release from last week, but we didn't get to "sneak peek" it because it came in too late. So I just got it and couldn't help but use it right away!!! Aren't they so beautiful?!?!
There are actually 3 flowers in the set, all connected in one die. For my flowers here, I used all 3 flowers in the set for the bottom 2 flowers, but I only used 2 of the flowers in the set for the 3 flowers at the top. If you look closely, you can see that for the top red and yellow flowers, I used the larger 2 of the 3 flowers in the set. And for the green flower in the center of the bouquet, I used the smaller 2 of the 3 flowers in the set. And the best part is that all 3 flowers in the set have Emma's signature stitched outline! I just love that detail!!!
In the center of each flower, I used little Recollections ~ heart gems.
I attached all the flowers to these little Woodsies ~ craft sticks. Then I hot glued them all together for a secure hold and added this beautiful bow made with Celebrate It ~ Holiday Ribbon. I used my We R Memory Keepers ~ Crop-a-Dile to punch a hole in the gift card. ***Note - If you do this, make sure you don't punch the hole thru the magnetic strip on the back...lol. I used a little piece of colored craft wire to attach the card to the bow and I curly-q'd the ends.
In the bottom right corner of the gift card, I used the star burst die from the My Creative Time ~ Build A Banner Kit. And the perfect "Thanks a bunch" sentiment is from the brand new My Creative Time ~ Bloom Where You Are Planted stamp set. The ink is black ~ Ranger Archival Ink.
What do you think? Something just a little bit different. I know it's still a bouquet - lol - but a least it's a little bit of a different idea. ;)
Well, that's it for me today. Make sure you head on over to My Creative Time to see what the rest of the Design Team has created. I will see you all soon.
