July Deal of the Month - Sweet and Sassy!
Hi, it's Diane today with a project that makes use of something you may not normally think of using. When the July Deal of the Month arrived at my house a few days ago I was intrigued by the transparent orange and green flowers - and the board they came on!
There is a lovely sparkly handle on the purse shape card and I immediately thought that it would be fun to alter to make a door hanger for a girl's room. Depending on her mood she can turn it to the "sweet" or the "sassy" side.
For the "sweet side, I used the green and white fancy polka dot ribbon along with some of the flowers from the string flower groovy petal medley in orange and the soft flowers from the spring medley - orange. The paper for the background is from the DCWV Citrus stack and the word is cut from the Cricut Paisley cartridge at 1 1/2 inches in yellow glitter cardstock with the word blackout in orange.
On the "sassy" side, I used the orange and green flowers, with lots of extra bling from the green gradient jewels. The paper for the background is also from the DCWV Citrus stack and the word is cut from the Cricut Paisley cartridge at 1 1/2 inches in orange glitter cardstock with the word blackout in yellow.
These flowers are so unusual and they certainly add a lot of pizazz to a project.
If you'd like step by step directions for making this project you can find them on my blog, Capadia Designs - here is a LINK to the post.
