Yes, another card using Flower Shop.  I made this while visiting with my new grandbaby, Carter, and only had a few things with me.  I'm amazed at how much I can actually do with just a few things.  One thing I did forget, though, was a greeting set, so I had to improvise a little with this small "I'm So Sorry" greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes that I brought along for my Convention swaps.  lol!  I'm also missing my studio and lighting area for photographing my cards!



Here are the details:

  1. The base 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Strawberry Slush cardstock is folded in half.
  2. I embossed the 4 x 5 1/4 Whisper White with the Honeycomb folder.
  3. I cut a 2 x 5" and 1 x 4 3/4" piece of So Saffron Patterns Designer Paper and cut flag ends, then layered them on the left side.
  4. I stamped the flowers twice with Strawberry Slush ink and once with Pistachio Pudding ink, then punched with the Pansy punch.  I cut the petals to layer the leaves behind the flowers. 
  5. It is hard to tell in the photo, but the centers were stamped with Strawberry Slush on the So Saffron Patterns DSP, so they do have yellow centers.  I popped them up with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  6. I placed the flowers on the front with Stampin' Dimensionals, then stamped I'm So Sorry from Teeny Tiny Wishes in Strawberry Slush ink on Whisper White and punched with the Small Oval punch.
