Simple, Bright, and Fun Greeting Cards
I decided that I wasn't going to limit myself to stamps that were shaped like circles this time, and I used some of my background stamps and just punched them out as well.
A close up of some of the circles.
I used the same Daffodil Delight color for this card. The stamped image is actually two stamps from different makers, and the flowers actually did have real flower heads that I covered with the buttons and the crochet flower.
The buttons were from my stash...I'm still working on using a giant random bag that I bought at a garage sale almost 5 years ago.
This is the first time that I've folded ribbon on a card. I like the look, and was trying to decide if I should continue the folding across the entire card, and as you can see, in the end I decided to only fold a portion of the ribbon.
I used my Martha Stewart version of the Scor-Pal to emboss a "frame" around my image.
Here is a close up of the flowers and the sentiment, "bloom where you're planted"
And one more look at the card.
Thanks for looking!
