Layout on a Card: #1

Today's card is the first one of it's kind I have made. Sure I've seen such designs elsewhere, but I haven't had the opportunity to try it.. that is, until now.

One of my ex-colleagues wanted a scrapbook but she wanted only one page. So I suggested that we make a smaller version of a one-page scrapbook and did a layout on a card! :) It wasn't that difficult considering I've been making LOs for a while now, the only hitch would be to fit those embellishments (that normally go on a 12x12 page) on a 6x6 card. But I did it anyway and loved the result! :)

I was itching to use these Rose dies from Quilled Creations (destashed by Pratiksha) and what I thought it would be perfect for scrap pieces of PP.

I was soooo excited about making the roses, that I ended up making loads of them in all three sizes and placed them in clusters on three different areas on the card. I also cut out leaves (from the same dies) and distressed them with Crushed Olive & Peeled Paint.

I also quilled some swirls using Brown 3mm strips and placed them around the flower clusters.

The papers for the flowers, the layers, the background and the roses are from My Mind's Eye's Miss Caroline Dolled Up 6"x6" Paper Pad. Lovely papers!!! Yummy!!! :)

As usual, let's get started with sneak peeks, shall we?

The top left corner of the Card/LO.
Another cluster somewhere in the upper right side of the card.
And another one somewhere in the bottom right of the card.
The camera is a die cut from Amy Tangerine's Daybook Collection. I added a Doiley on the base PP, layered a background PP for the photo and stuck the die cut in between the two :P

I printed the sentiment out and distressed the edges of the CS with Antique Lenin & Tea Dye.

And here's the complete card. :)

To makes this card (or Layout on a card) I used the following tools/products..

For Client projects, it depends on what they want, for DT projects it depends on how much time I have :P :P But it's people like you who make me want to Quill more.. I will keep your words in mind and add quilling on every project possible..
