CCMC316 Flower Patch

It’s Thursday and time for another Create with Connie and Mary Challenge!  We have a very pretty color combination this week to try!  For some reason, it called out flowers to me!  Of course…most of the time flower sets are calling to me!  lol!




And here is my card:

Now for the details:

  • The base is 4 1/4 x 11 Soft Sky, folded in half.
  • I added a layer of 4 x 5 1/4 Blackberry Bliss cardstock.
  • On the 3 3/4 x 5 layer of Whisper White, I used Work of Art stamp set and stamped off the chevron pattern with Blackberry Bliss ink.  I then added stamped off circles from the same set going diagonally across the cardstock of Old Olive ink.
  • I embossed the Fun Frame and cut it out, and cut the inside rectangle out, too, so what is underneath would peak out.  I added it to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The starburst flower from Flower Patch was stamped with Blackberry Bliss ink on Whisper White and cut with the Flower Fair Framelits, along with a White center flower.  I also stamped the small center with Soft Sky on Soft Sky cardstock and used the framelit to cut it out, too.  I placed a pearl in the center.  I added it to the edge of the frame with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The leaves from Flower Patch were stamped off with Old Olive, then I added the “stem” for the veins full strength Old Olive ink.  I used the framelits again to cut out three of them and tucked them under the flower.
  • Finally I stamped the Be You tiful word with Old Olive on a strip of Whisper White, but cut off the end to read “Be You”.

I really like the softness of the Soft Sky color with the dark, rich Blackberry Bliss, don’t you?
