i {heart} kelly griglione + shaped cards

this card was inspired by kelly griglione's amazing mondo hydrangea card in the classroom last month (see it and her whole amazing article here). kelly is so talented, i love everything she does! after seeing her shaped hydrangea card, i had to make my own shaped flower card:
to create this card, die cut the magnolia from a folded A2 card making sure to place the folded edge of the card inside the cutting edge of the die.

stamp and emboss the magnolia in white on watercolor paper. i prefer bristol.

die cut the stamped and embossed magnolia with the coordinating die.
color the stamped & embossed magnolia. i love clean color markers with a waterbrush to blend.
adhere the colored magnolia to the front of the magnolia shaped card.

finally add a little message tag with twine. fun tip: if you don't have twine to match your card? you can color it. to create pale green twine i scribbled my clean color marker on my non-stick craft sheet, misted the ink and put my twine into the ink. then i used my heat gun to set it. 

have a great day!
