Graphic 45 – Come Away With Me

Hi Peeps, today I have an adorable card perfect for that seasoned traveler. My mom’s sisters love to take cruises and this card certainly fits the bill. I used Graphic 45’s Come Away With Me designer papers, Core’dinations Colorcore Pastels 12 x 12 premium card stock, as well as mulberry paper for the flowers.

I used some of the flowers that I made with the mulberry paper when I did the Dahlia tutorials, as well as small roses I made with Spellbinders Rose Creations dies. I added a bit of cheesecloth in and around the flowers and panels, gives it a bit of an organic feel, together with burlap string. I brayered Frayed Burlap ink over the cheesecloth.  My Distrezz-It-All made a quick job of distressing the borders.

Frayed Burlap Distress ink was sponged around the borders of the panels, the flowers are tinted with Dried Marigold (roses), Scattered Straw (yellow flower), Broken China and Peeled Paint (blue flowers).

    Oh, Jerri, this is gorgeous! What a beautiful theme!! Your flowers are exquisite, and I totally love the light, airy feel of the cheesecloth and the burlap…yum! It’s like what baby’s breath does in a beautiful bouquet of roses…adds a soft touch! And the layout is stunning along with the distressing, but your flowers are the show-stoppers for me! I LOVE them so! Thank you for sharing this beautiful card, and I know it will be cherished! Hugs, sweet friend!

    Beautiful card! Love the little touches that make it so perfect…..cheesecloth, burlap string, brown distress ink, torn edges. And, of course, gorgeous flowers! That just happen to be suited so well to the paper collection. 😉

    What a beautiful vintage-looking card! I love your flowers and the wispiness that the cheese cloth provides.

  12. Such lovely flowers to go with the papers and love your addition of the stick pin, Lovely details!!
    Thanks so much for your sweet comments 🙂

    Gorgeous and oh so vintage feeling. Love the colour combo and as always your fantastic flowers. I have had cheesecloth in my crafting stash for ages – amazing how effective simple and inexpensive household items can be in our art work.

  14. Love Graphic 45! This is an awesome way to use those pre-made panels! I don’t like using them as a card because they ARE pre-made but this is really quite elegant and beautiful! I will have to keep this in mind! Thanks for all your creative, lovely ideas!

  15. Cecilia Reyes says:

  16. Gloria Westerman says:

    This is so fabulous….I love the cheese cloth tuck around…the color of it is so complementary…and your flowers are so pretty…prima doesn’t have anything on you…you make so realistic flowers….I’m not a big fan of G45 but this is gorgeous….love it….tfs

    Beautiful Jerri, lovely work, I just need to get away from this machine that connects me to the world and go play with my stuff. lol

  20. Debbie Dunham says:

    Beautiful card! As always your flowers are gorgeous!

  21. Margie Fulcher says:

    Hi Grace: What a delight to open my e-mail and have a card from you. Your cards are so beautiful. When you mention that you made the flowers with mulberry paper, is that the same mulberry paper that has the fibers in it or is this a different paper? Thanks for sharing you amazing talent.

  22. Carol Southern says:

    More of your beautifully made flowers on this gorgeous card and another two of your stunning parchment cards that I missed seeing until now. Lovely work.

  23. Beautiful flowers, Jerri, and I just love how you worked in the cheesecloth. I love this very cool vintage paper, too.
