After a little break at Aurora Wings, our brand new challenge starts today with the theme of Anything Goes. This is probably the hardest theme for me because finally deciding on an image takes me forever! Yes, I should be thinking Fall, but with the weather in the 90's upwards, I'm still in a summer mode, so I couldn't resist one more card featuring my favorite flowers, hydrangeas.
I started out with the sweet Hydrangea Fairy 2, just one of the fabulous digis featuring this flower. She's colored with Copics and fussy cut. I kinda think Mitzi must have a bit of a soft spot for hydrangeas too, seeing all of the gorgeous stamps she's drawn with them. You can find them all HERE.
The card fold is one I got from an Aussie friend who no longer crafts nor blogs. I used the measurements from another card I made several years ago. Hopefully these measurements will help. I don't even remember the name of the fold. You start with a piece that's 5x12". You'll be scoring along both the dotted and solid lines. This is the inside view and the dotted lines are valley folds, the solid are mountain folds. I've cut a slit in the center to insert the semicircle die and another slit 3/4" down to insert the fairy image. the card still folds flat for mailing. Die cuts are all from Heartfelt Creations.
Each side features additional flowers. On the left is Hydrangea 2
and on the right, Hydrangea 1. Both are available for a discount price HERE. I love using Mitzi's flowers in conjunction with the AW fantasy stamps, but they are beautiful on their own, as well. You can find the whole collection in the Aurora Wings Etsy shop by searching by type of flower or in the Floral Collection of the AW Website's Digital Stamp Shop. There is more gorgeous inspiration on the AW Challenge Blog so please stop by and join our challenge and don't forget to check out the newest releases on the AW Showcase Blog.
