The card I created for today isn't your usual card. I wanted to try something a little different.
First, I cut a strip of Stampers Select to 5 X 2.5" and stamped my stems all the way across in Certainly Celery. Instead of using the flowers for this card I put my focus all on the flower centers. I stamped them across in Toile Pink Palette Ink and Pixie Pink from SU! After stamping those I went over them with embossing ink and then sprinkled holographic embossing powder over them and heat set. Next, I trimmed a piece of green cardstock to 2.75 X 10". I scored and folded it in half and placed my stamped image on the front of it.
I then stamped 'Daughter' in Basic Black and punched it out using my large oval punch from SU! I placed the punched out word onto a scrap piece of green cardstock and trimmed around with my scalloped edge scissors.
When trimming with scalloped scissors I always make a little cut into the side of the image I'm cutting around.
Doing so always allows for an easier starting point and if the scallops don't perfectly align when you make your final way around then you can disguise the 'mess up' with a brad, button, flower etc.
Adhere 'Daughter' to the front of you flowers.
You will next need to trim a piece of white cardstock to 5 X 5" and a piece of patterned paper to 5 X 5". Adhere the patterned paper over the white. Since this is the base of your card it makes it studier by adding the thicker cardstock under the pp.
After I created my base I added a strip of Blush Blossom measuring 3 X 5" and adhered it across the center. I then attached my folded green 'card' in the center of that. I used my black Zig pen to create little black dots around each flower!
That's it! What do you think?!
Have a great day! Thanks for visiting!
