It’s Thursday and you know that means it is time for a Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge. We have a fun color combination for you to try this week!
I think this is one of my favorite flower sets right now. And I love the eyelet border dies! I used the INSIDE of the border die that I had left over from another card I made. I thought it looked just as pretty as the border one!
- The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Calypso Coral cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
- A 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Petal Pink was embossed with the Painted Texture Embossing Folder and added to the front.
- A 2 x 5-1/4 strip of Hello Irresistible Designer Paper was added across the middle of the front.
- The inside of the largest Darling Details scallop border die was cut from Basic White cardstock and added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- The greeting from Darling Details was stamped with Calypso Coral Ink in the upper right corner.
- The large flower was stamped with Calypso Coral Ink on the Hello Irresistible Designer Paper and the leaves stamped with Lost Lagoon Ink on the Hello Irresistible DSP, too. They were cut with the Darling Details Dies and added to the front of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. (I cut apart the leaves and put one on one side and two on the other side.
- The cluster stem of flowers was cut with the Darling Details Die from Petal Pink cardstock, then the stem and leaves colored with the Light Lost Lagoon Stampin’ Blends. It was tucked under the flower and adhered.
- A trio of Ombre Matte Decorative Dots were added to the background.
GORGEOUS, isn’t it? I love how it turned out! Go check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did with this challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary
