Prima's Victorian Christmas by Frank Garcia!
If you con't have this collection yet, go grab it up. It's a Christmas collection and yet, once the holidays are over, you'll still be pulling this out and using the gorgeous non-holiday prints....stripes and polka dots? Can't get more versatile than that!!
This is a card that I created for my parents. I put a variety of flowers in this card you can can see a good array of the collection.
This collection has such rich warmth - perfect for a vintage flair. I actually used the 12x12 papers here. I also have one of Prima's newly released dies as a background.
Scroll down a bit further and I'll show you how I made the base of my card. But first a few more close ups.
OK so where can you snag these papers? At the Flying Unicorn of course. You can find the collection right here.
So these are the layers I started for the base. I used a kraft colored pre-folded card because the warm kraft is such a great complimenting neutral for this collection.
I framed up the card like this:
Next I added a strip of texture - some neutral burlap.
And this is how I used the Prima Doily Die cut. I used it as more of a circle border. Added cardboard over it for some dimension.I'll follow up with a few more close ups of the floral cluster. I love the large flower as a gorgeous anchor piece. My fluster is then filled in with the smaller ones and snippets of the sprigs.
