Painted Petals

This card was my Control Freaks card for the Occasions Catalog swap!  I couldn’t wait to play with the Painted Petals set and this was the first card I made with it!


Painted Petals 4

Here are the details for you:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Whisper White folded in half.
  • The 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Pool Party was embossed with the Spring Flowers folder.
  • Across the front is a 1-1/4 x 5-1/4 strip of the green stripe pattern in the Painted Blooms Designer Paper.
  • Whisper White was cut from the third from smallest Oval Framelit.  Using the Painted Petals Stamp Set, the trio of flowers were stamped with Pool Party, the leaves from Pear Pizzazz, the dots with So Saffron and the greeting in Tuxedo Black Ink.
  • Pearls were colored with the Daffodil Delight Blendabilities Markers and placed in the center of the flowers.
  • A bow was tied with the Wild Wasabi Thick Twine and added under the greeting with a Mini Glue Dot.

Hope you like it!

I love this card, and keep going back to it. I am ready to make it but can’t locate the words you used. Could you help me? I really like the sentiment.
