Hello there! Today I decided to whip up a little generic card that could be used as a thank you or just to tell someone special you are thinking about them.
I started with a 4.5 inch circle card in Colonial White, some papers from the Close To My Heart (CTMH) Stella paper pack, and these ink colours (which match the papers)…
The first thing I did was stamp the flower outline and flower pieces. The stamp set I used is a cute little CTMH set called Just For You. You will see in the picture that I stamped the outline of the flower in Cocoa and then filled it in with the petal stamps in the three other colours. I also stamped an extra set of petals and cut them out. The middle of the flower was stamped second generation in Cocoa. I added a chocolate flower button tied with a piece of Lagoon baker’s twine.
After cutting out the extra petals I sponged the edges with Cocoa ink.
Next I assembled the flower. The extra petals were curled around a pencil to bend them up a bit and then adhered to the flower. The middle was popped up with a dimmensional foam dot. Here is the assembled flower.
Lastly, I cut out the other paper pieces for the card. I stamped the sentiment in Cocoa ink and the leaves in Garden Green onto Garden Green CS. The blue patterned paper is a 4 inch circle. The brown CS is also a 4 inch circle with the top and bottom cut off. I added a 3/4 inch strip of Tulip CS in the centre of the brown. Now it just has to be assembled…
Pretty and straight forward. I drew my inspiration for this card from the background patterned paper. It certainly helped to have the coordinating inks. Hope you enjoyed today’s post. Have an inspirational day!
