Lollipop Flower

Hello again Friends and Fellow Crafters,

Hope you are enjoying your week and are managing to fit in some crafting time.  My card today is one I made in September 2009 for Sue and Harvey of Imagination Crafts.   I really liked this stamp as it had a modern touch to it, a little different from their usual stamps.   I hope you like what I did with it.

Fold an A5 card in half portrait style.  Take the vellum and colour the back of it with oil pastels.   Fix this to the base card by putting a strip of double sided sticky tape on the back of the card and fix the vellum to it and then bend the vellum around the fold of the card to the front.    Glue the vellum to the front of the card.  Cover with the angel hair.

Take some white card and run the Rollagraph stamp over it, using the brown Stazon pad.   Colour over this with the oil pastels and run the brown Stazon pad around the edges.   Tear this card into two pieces to fit across the top left and bottom right corners,  leaving 2 of the edges straight.   Glue these into position.

Using another piece of vellum, the stencil, light box and embossing tool, dry emboss the design onto the vellum.   Take off the light box and colour the back of the vellum with the green oil pastel.   Cut out the shape and glue to the bottom left of the base card.

Take some white card and colour with the oil pastels, then stamp the lollipop flowers onto the centre using the brown Stazon.   Trim randomly around the image and run the brown inkpad around the edges.

Stamp the flowers again onto acetate with the copper pigment pad, twice and heat emboss using the copper embossing powder.
Fix one image over the coloured card, moving the copper image slightly to one side of the brown image.   Punch a hole in each corner of the acetate and the card.   Insert a brad into each hole.   Glue this panel to the base card.

Cut out all three of the flowers from the second piece of acetate and glue onto the original copper image, using silicone glue, off setting the flowers slightly.   Well that's it folks, one lollipop flower card.   Thank you for popping by to have a look.   See you again soon with another flower card in which I use some wire, see you soon.
