I case the idea for this from Shelli Gardner (!) but I changed several things. I kept the layout and the elements on the card and that’s about it.
Since I don’t have the background stamp she used, I chose Dictionary for my background. To make the lighter/darker areas on the background stamp, I inked it in Crumb Cake and then took a sponge dauber and added some Early Espresso. The center piece is the Framelit from Chalk Talk and the stamp set I used is Lacy & Lovely. I also switched out the sentiment and used Perfect Pairs. I love the card – and really love how changing just a few things makes it my own (kind of!)
Stamp Sets – Beautifully Baroque, Petite Pairs, Lacy & Lovely, Dictionary
cardstock – Crumb Cake, Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral, Whisper White, Silver Glimmer, Vellum Card stock
Ink – Crumb Cake, Early Espresso
Etc – Chalk Talk Framelit, Beautiful Butterfly die, Pansy punch, Baroque embossing folder, Vintage clear button, linen thread, Butterfly punch (small), Rhinestone
To make the big flower, I punch 3 or 4 pansy punches, misted them with water and wadded each punch up. After they dried, I stacked them together and used glue to hold them. Once it was dry I gathered the petals into the look I wanted and glued it to the card. (I might need to hand deliver this one!) Hugs, Fran
