Hello denim card

For this months blog challenge on Let's Craft and Create I am sharing a card to say Hello"
As our theme, this month is paper strips instead of ribbon, I remembered that I had bought a  card kit from Hobby House called Mia Bella. As with all Hobby house kits, you can make so much from them and they have the best collection of embellishments if you are looking for an around kit to start off with.

This is just a selection of some of the card that I am using from the collection. I will still have enough left over to make another project.

Today I am really focusing on this sheet of denim card which will form the basis of my ribbon strips.

I used the Dreamees divine doily die on the denim daisy card stock.

For my flower I used some Fleurs flower forming foam with the Dreamees Sweet Sunflowers dies.

I inked the edges of the petals with an oil pastel, scrunched and shaped the petals a little before layering them up with a tiny drop of hot glue

In the centre of the flower I added a tiny drop of hot glue to stick the little white button down.
I used a rectangular stitched dies to cut my denim faux pocket out and used the card strips to edge the as ribbon. I did the same with the centre panel. The border strip along the base of the card worked really well as a stitched hem.
A few pale blue pearls and button to match my flower for the faux pocket with a "hello" sentiment to finish my card off.

Our design team have also been busy this month with projects of their own and there is always lots of fabulous inspiration shared by the crafters on our blog too.
