Special Reason

If you follow my blog, I mentioned last week that several of the Challenge Team used the Special Reason Bundle on their cards.  I decided to make a second card from something different for the actual challenge, but here’s my the original Special Reason card I was going to post.  I love the soft and spring-like colors!



Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Flirty Flamingo, scored at 4-1/4 and folded in half.
  • On the 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Whisper White, a 3/4 x 5-1/4 strip of In Color Patterns DSP was added across the front.
  • The larger flower from Special Reason stamp set was stamped with Flirty Flamingo on Whisper White and the smaller flower twice with Blushing Bride, the leaves with Pear Pizzazz.  All were cut with the Stylish Stems Framelits.
  • The were added to the front of the card, and the greeting was stamped with Memento Black Ink.
