Today Joy Taylor is here to share an amazing floral card featuring Mint Julep. Sadly, this also marks her last project as a member of the BG design time. We feel so lucky to have been able to feature your beautiful designs here for so long, Joy! Thank you for sharing your talent with us all!
Joy: I worked with the Mint Julep collection and created a unique handmade flower to add to any projects. This is great when you don’t always have the tools in your arsenal to create something pretty to add to a creation. To begin, I cut out three circles using 6 x 6 patterned paper and circle dies.
Using some scissors, start to cut into the center of the circle, making sure not to cut all the way through. I prefer to eyeball it in order to give the flower more character.
Adhere each of the circles together with some dimensional adhesive.
Add a center feature to the flower by threading some twine through a Vintage Button and adhere it to the center of the flower with a glue dot. Tie the twine into a bow and add to a card.
Trim a standard size card to form a top fold card 4 1/4 x 5 1/2,” trim a piece of patterned paper to measure 4 1/4 x 2″ and adhere to the base of the card, trim another strip of pattern paper 1/4 of an inch and adhere to the top of the other piece of pattern paper. Add the handmade flower with dimensional adhesive to the left hand side of the patterned paper and finish off by adding a stamp sentiment to the top of the card in addition to a few pearls.
This is sadly my last post for BasicGrey, I want to say a huge thanks not just to BasicGrey as a company but also to Shara and Mel who gave me the most amazing gift to be apart of this incredibly talented team and fabulous company, I have enjoyed every minute of my time with BasicGrey and have learnt so much…but with changes in my life, some hard decisions have had to be made and unfortunately I will be standing down from the BasicGrey team…
However, I will still continue to create with their amazing product and, who knows, you may see me back here guesting :) I wish BasicGrey, Shara and the rest of the team all the very best and thank them from the bottom of my heart…
