Hello again! It’s time for our Create with Connie and Mary Thursday challenge! This time it is an unusual sketch!
I decided to use my In Bloom Stamp set with Pierced Blooms Dies…actually, I only used the stamp set for the greeting because the dies are SO gorgeous with all the stitching on them! Since the sketch really called for it, I used made a square card…haven’t done that in a while!
- The base is 5 x 10 Soft Sea Foam cardstock, scored at 5 and folded.
- On top is a 4-3/4 x 4-3/4 piece of Basic White cardstock.
- The 4-1/2 x 4-1/2 piece of Rococo Rose cardstock was embossed with the Old World Paper embossing folder, then added to the front.
- A 3″ square of Paper Blooms Designer Paper (FREE SAB!) was cut in half diagonally, then added to the front of the card with points meeting in the center.
- The Stitched Shape large Circle was cut from Basic White cardstock and adhered in the center.
- The blooms were cut from Rococo Rose, Blushing Bride and Daffodil Delight, and the leaves from Soft Sea Foam cardstocks with the Pierced Blooms Dies, then arranged on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- A 1/2 x 3-3/4 strip of Garden Green was added over the circle.
- The greeting from In Bloom stamp set was stamped with Memento Black on a 3/4 x 2 piece of Basic White with Memento Black Ink.
- A trio of Pastel Pearls were added to the background.
Make sure to check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did over on Create with Connie and Mary with this sketch! Lots of great ideas!
