Hi, all! I decided to take a break from school work and design team work to create just for fun. I have a large quantity of absolutely GORGEOUS flowers made for me by my friend, Cohenna, and I feel so bad that I haven't used them enough! She is SO talented and SO kind to send them to me all the way from Poland!!! Come and see what I've made with them...
See, aren't they amazing?! They are just so big and beautiful! BUT, to start this card, I actually created my card base. I used patterned paper from the Bramble Rose collection from My Mind's Eye, gold and white striped washi tape from my stash (not sure the company), a doily, and some lace trim from Inspired By Stamping.
I then added some die cut leaves to the base. The leaves were die cut from more Bramble Rose paper from My Mind's Eye using a die from Stampin' Up!. I layered on the largest flowers first, then added the little tiny yellow ones and some sequins from Paper Sweeties and pearls from Want2Scrap.
The final step was to add a sentiment. This one was created by heat embossing letters from the Paper Sweeties' Fancy Monograms stamp set using gold embossing powder from STAMPendous! onto Candy cardstock from The Stamps of Life. I stamped the sentiment onto the same Bramble Rose paper from which the leaves had been die cut.
After everything was glued on and layered, I just had to wait for it to dry! I really do love the final product--I think that my mom will enjoy this card on Mother's Day! What about you? Do you agree? I would love to hear what you think in the comments below!
I'm entering this card into these fabulous challenges~
That's all for me right now! I'll be back soon with another creation for your viewing pleasure! Thank you so much for stopping by--I always love seeing friends pop over, old AND new! Until next time, HUGS and happy stamping, all! :)
