Sorry for neglecting my blog but I have been very busy. I have had so much going on the past couple of weeks that I didn't have the time to keep you all updated. So to kick it off....
I created a thank you card for a very special lady on the Cricut Message board. She sent me a RAK of a retired Stampin' Up ink refill that I desperately needed! What a great person!
No matter how many times I photographed this card it just did not show up as pretty as it was in person. (IMHO) LOL
This is a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card. The card base was an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of cardstock that I cut in half. The ovals were cut using Nestabilities. I stamped the flower stems onto the ivory oval and then stamped the flowers separately. I used embossing pens to color in the flowers and heat set with clear embossing powder. Then I cut them out and used pop dots to place the flowers at the top of the stems.
The scalloped center strip was done using a Fiskers Threading Water punch. (One of my favorite border punches!) Matching patterned paper was added on top for contrast.
Stickles were added to the flower centers and to several of the flowers on the background paper.
