Hi it's Sandy playing with a large, layered flower on my card today. I layer a Kaisercraft Ribbon Rose on top of a satin peony and a Green Tara Camelia. Combining these textures gives my flower a luxurious look and ensures it becomes the center of attention.
When using a large floral embellishment on a card, here are some tips to help you achieve a balanced look. Keep the colour scheme fairly simple by going monochromatic or pairing one colour with neutrals (green with black and white in my case). Limit the use of patterns and go with a fairly small scale pattern. Introduce some geometric structure such as this Crate Paper frame or a shipping tag which will allow the organic shape of the flower to stand out.
Hope you find these cardmaking tips useful. Next week I'll be sharing a layout using more die-cut products so see you then.
