Flowers Everywhere!

Flowers! Again!? YEAH! Lol
Well I had no other idea! This one is for mom’s colleague. He wants it for someone’s anniversary. I know you must be thinking “What!” Its over-the-top I know! But my darlings, it’s SO NOT in this part of the world! *smiles*
Plus, when my dad approves then it's a done deal!
He always likes these flowers.

Again, the flowers are hand drawn and hand cut, no punches, no stamps, no templates! And to top it off this time there is something extra that I did. Can you see the swirls? Well, hand drawn and hand cut! Phew! You need proof? Here it comes!

Well the picture is a little blurry because the swirls are quite light and I did not want to switch the fan off! Hehehehe. This is the first time I have ever hand cut swirls, I have always drawn them but never have I cut them out like this. Apparently they start curling while you are cutting them. And believe me they look gorgeous like that!

To cut these I had to look for a very sharp scissor and what I got was a manicure scissor. It was the sharpest and the pointiest one I had! Lol
I don’t use it for manicure, I am glad I could put it to use somewhere worthy! Hahahaa

I glittered the red ones and just outlined the pink ones because the red glitter looked amazing!

You can see no edge colouring here because this picture was taken earlier. After completing a card I always kinda think it looks incomplete so I always tend to do something with it, hence I coloured the card's edges later on.

You have reason to be proud! This is a beautiful card. The fact that you did all the cutting by hand, that is even more impressive. Keep you your great works!
