Peaceful Petals

Another pretty flower stamp set in the Occasions Catalog!  I was excited to see some outline images that could be colored, or stamped on colored cardstock!  Every once in a while I do like to color!  On this one, I did both!  And…don't you LOVE that new On Film Framelit?  It embosses around the edges, too!  This card has lots of texture.



Here are the details:

  1. The base is 4 1/4 x 11 Tangerine Tango cardstock, folded in half.
  2. I embossed the 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Whisper White with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder.
  3. The On File Framelit was cut from Baked Brown Sugar cardstock and placed on the front.
  4. I measured the inside of the frame and then cut another piece of Whisper White that was 1/4" smaller (I think 2 3/4 x 2 3/4?)  I stamped the greeting from Peaceful Petals with Baked Brown Sugar in the upper right corner.
  5. The flower was stamped twice on Crushed Curry with Black Stazon, then I used my AquaPainter and added Tangerine Tango ink around it.  I cut out one full flower and just the center of the other.
  6. The leaves were stamped with Black Stazon on Garden Green carstock, cut out, and more Garden Green ink added with the AquaPainter.
  7. In the center of the flower, I added a small orange designer button tied with White Bakers Twine.
  8. The entire flower was popped up on the front with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  9. I added some EXTRA sparkle with some of the Gold Sequins cut from the trim…fun!!!

Beautiful card and great instructions Connie!!  You always do such beautiful work — thanks for sharing!  Sorry about your flight — hopefully you will still get there in time for Leadership events.  (Note:  I love that you indicate on your blog what city and state you are from so readers know if you live near them or not.)
