This is similar to a project my Stamp Clubs made this month! They loved this project! For this card, I switched up the layout they did so it would fit Technostamper's Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge!
As you can see, I flipped the sketch so it is upright instead of on the side. And…this is a card and gift combined! Can you tell what it is?
For the card, I started with a base of Melon Mambo cardstock and layered on a piece of polka dot print from the Sale-A-Bration Ice Cream Parlor Designer paper. I added a strip of Pear Pizzazz that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Tasteful Trim XL Die. In each of the scallops I placed a Pearl. I made the vase with the Ovals #2 Die from Daffodil Delight cardstock and stamped the image from Sweet Summer on it with Pear Pizzazz. I placed some small Pearls on the flower buds. I used Sticky Strip around the edges of the oval, except for the top, then adhered it to the front of the designer paper. I stamped three butterflies from Sweet Summer in Basic Black and colored them with Early Espresso and Daffodil Delight Stampin' Write Markers. To hide the seam of the designer paper, I used a length of 1/8 Old Olive Taffeta Ribbon.
And for the surprise gift!!! A bookmark can be removed from the pocket of the vase!
The jumbo paperclip bookmark is made with the Fun Flowers Die and the 5 Petal Punch. I cut the medium flower with Melon Mambo and layered on the Daffodil Delight punched with the 5 Petal Punch. In the center is a Sweet Stitches Fabric Brad! I stamped leaves with the Build a Blossom stamp set in Old Olive Classic Ink on Pear Pizzazz and punched with the Blossom Petals Punch. On the back to hold the flower to the paperclip is a Scallop Circle of Pear Pizzazz. Not shown in this picture (see first picture), I added a piece of Certainly Celery Taffeta Ribbon because I thought it needed just a little something! lol!
I made up a bunch of these flower bookmarks to sell at the stamping retreat I'm going to this weekend! I hope they like them!
Sharing creativity one stamped image at a time!
