Calla Lilies always remind me of Diego Rivera. I love his paintings and if I could, I would buy one of the prints. Some of his paintings had women carring whole baskets of these beautiful flowers.
And so, it is my turn to try to make my own interpretation of them out of cardstock.
I began with the heart and leaf cuts from the Cricut Cartridge Flower shop. But you can do it with any Heart die cut. There are two cuts using the same shape. The long shape at the left is used for the leaf, the one in the middle is just the tip of the leaf and it is used for the stamen.
And here is the finished product.
Make multiples to complete a beautiful bouquet.
I hope you like my version of the Calla Lily. Tomorrow's Flower is a Surprise, but here is a hint: Don't be blue, I will make flower.
Stay tuned on Saturday for a chance to win a whole bouquet of the flowers featured in my tutorials
Thanks for looking!
