Once in a while I like to go thru my "starts" pile and randomly pick out some items to put together as a card. You know what "starts" are…those half finished items that never made it onto the card you were working on. That is how I built this card…out of all starts except for the base of So Saffron!
I made two of the flowers several months ago and only used one. I used the Blossom Punch in the Occasions Mini and punched two of them with So Saffron cardstock. I spritzed them with water, crumpled them up and added Early Espresso ink around the edges. I added two 5 layer flower punches of Early Espresso in the center, spritzing and inking the same. The center is a 3/4" circle punched from the Attic Boutique Designer Paper with a neutral brown Shimmer Brad in the center. I layered it on a 2 3/8" Scallop Circle of Pool Party cardstock.
The base of the card is So Saffron and I added a layer of Soft Suede cardstock. I had a scrap of the Attic Boutique Designer Paper that fit the bottom perfectly. I wrapped around some Pool Party Seam Binding Ribbon and tied a knot. The top was a scrap of Very Vanilla cut and embossed with the Adorning Accents curved die and folder that I had already made. I trimmed it to fit the top of my card and added the mother greeting from Delightful Dozen stamp set in Soft Suede. I call this Clean & Simple Vintage! lol!
