Frida Kahlo is INCREDIBLY trendy right now. Beyond being a newly discovered icon she was an amazingly strong woman. While she was mostly known for being Diego Rivera’s wife however recently her own contribution to the art world has started to be appreciated. Her striking features makes her immediately recognizable.
Kindred Stamps has released their own homage to Frida. Last week they released a 2×6 stamp set dedicated to this incredible woman. The set includes an image of Frida herself, a quote attributed to her, and two lovely accent stamps. I am SO inspired by this stamp set. I have several card ideas that feature this set, unfortunately, I was only able to bring one of them to you today. I will, in the very near future, be bringing you at least one more!
One of my inspirations for this card came from a project that Kraftgali had asked me to do, Princy had asked me to use the Classic Wedding Card kit from Heartfelt Creations. Making those roses for those cards was such an AMAZING project. I learned SO MUCH working on that project, and it inspired me to make flowers for this one.
I used the Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose stamp and die to help produce some WOW in this card! I also used gold foiling on the base panel of this card. The results, including the LOVELY Frida, is jaw dropping if I do say so. And I do. I say this is AMAZING. 😉 I am IN LOVE with this card!
I have been asked, by a friend, to remake this card, and when I do I hope I’ll be able to provide a YouTube video on how I constructed this card. Due to the formation of the flowers having that black panel that Frida is on there was a bit of creative construction in making this card. The result is a card that is not able to be packaged in the average envelope or to be shipped easily. However, I think all for that is made up for because this card is AMAZING!
Oh, and I totally didn’t have a tag to make that panel that Frida is on! But I did have one in that shape, it made a hollow tag frame. To get more bang out of my die’s buck, I traced it out and fussy cut!
