Island Floral

Technostamper has another fun sketch to try today (TSSC175).  This one, of course, screams out for one of our fabulous flower dies!  Since I've used Fun Flowers Die quite a bit, I decided to switch it out and use the Island Floral Die again.

 

 

 

I had this vellum double Island Floral diecut sitting on my desk for a while.  I cut the large flower twice and ran them thru the Big Shot with the Finial Press Impressions Folder.  I alternated the two flowers…then added the Old Olive "leaves" behind it.  In the center I added one of the new Blossom Bouquet punch pieces in Pumpkin Pie, then added a Flower Brad with Rhinestone jewel in the center.  I love how that embossing looks on the cardstock vellum!

 

 

The base of the card is Daffodil Delight and I used the Framed Tulip Border on Whisper White.  I cut a piece of the Playful Perfect Dots Scrappin' Kit polka dot designer paper for the center, and used the striped pattern as an accent.  All that is matted on more Daffodil Delight.  I added the Vellum Flower with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Then I stamped Thanks for being a Friend from Happy Greetings in Basic Black on Pumpkin Pie and punched with the Decorative Label punch.

 

Thanks for stopping by!

Connie you are really doing a great job with that triple flower punch.  I really don't like it–except when you use it.  Love the velum flower too.  Great card.  Thanks so much for playing along!

I love using velum these days – it makes such a pop on cards.  This is really pretty – TFS!
