CCMC287 Petite Petals

We have a fun sketch challenge for you this week over on Create with Connie and Mary!  The shape in the center can be anything, so you'll see below that I used a tag!  Some of the other Challenge Team members did fun things with the shape, too!



Here's my card.  Yes, I'm still obsessed with Petite Petals…just so much fun with this little shape!

CCMC287 Petite Petals

Here are the details:

  1. The base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Island Indigo cardstock.
  2. I embossed the Whisper White layer with the Decorative Dots fold (a Sale-A-Bration selection!)
  3. I cut the flag piece in the center from Watercolor Wonder Designer Paper, it is 1 3/4" x 5".
  4. I used the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch with Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock, then added an 1 3/4" wide panel of Whisper White and stamped You and Me from Perfect Pennants with Island Indigo ink.  At the bottom I cut another 1/2" strip of coordinating DSP from Watercolor Wonder DSP package.
  5. I stamped the Petite Petals flower three times with Daffodil Delight and punched them out.  In the centers, I added the Gold Sequins.  I also stamped one of the flowers with Gumball Green, then cut it up for leaves.
  6. Finally, I added a sprinkling of more Gold Sequins according to the sketch.

Isn't it fun?  I'm happy with how it turned out!
