CCMC306 Flower Fair

I’m still waiting on my order with the stamp set that matches the Flower Fair Framelits I received on the Incentive Cruise.  It will be here tomorrow and I can’t wait to get them!  But, I made do with just the Framelits to do this card for the Create with Connie and Mary Color Challenge this week!



Ok, I REALLY like this card!  I used Work of Art in the background for the different shades of zig zags, and then the layers of framelits just top it off.


Here are the details:

  1. The base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Coastal Cabana folded in half.
  2. On the 4 x 5 1/4 layer of Whisper White, I stamped the zig zag image in Work of Art in the background three times without reinking.  Then I stamped Hello from Four You with Perfect Plum ink.
  3. I cut the Flower Fair Framelits large flower from Perfect Plum Patterns Paper and then the centers from Whisper White and Coastal Cabana.  They are put together with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  4. I cut the leaves with Wild Wasabi and the Flower Fair Framelits, then stamped them with Wild Wasabi Ink and the zig zag image.
  5. I punched three of the Itty Bitty flower punch from Perfect Plum and added them to the front.
  6. Finally, I added a little bling with Pearls in the center of the flowers.

Great combination of products – cute little touch adding the chevron to the leaves for a little texture and added interest!
