One of the first flowers my mother shared with me to create my first garden was black-eyed susans. I thought it would be fitting to represent this flower on her card as a thank you for sparking one of my fondest passions in life; flowers and gardening. This card has a minimalistic style, but is yet rather striking and dramatic like black-eyed susan flowers are in the landscape.
My Mother loves black and white designs as well as textured embossing. I not only used the fancy fan texture in the large white area of this card, but I also used the square lattice texture for the center of the flower to give it a more life like look. (Pictures really don't do these textures justice.) The square lattice embossing folder is one of my favorite textured impressions because it is so versatile and it is being discontinued. Get the embossing folder while it still lasts! Click on the link above to purchase it at my online store.
Here are the items I used to make this card:
Colors used: So Saffron, Basic Black, Whisper White
