This blue is Marina Mist - isn't it divine?! Look at how well it contrasts with Cajun Craze. And have you seen the flower?!!! It's made with the new and exciting Fancy Flower punch. I hope you like it as you'll probably be seeing rather a lot of it in the next week or so!
Here's how to make this card:
- Cut a piece of designer paper 14.8cm x 4.8cm. Mount it on a piece of Cajun Spice card stock 14.8cm x 5.3cm. Attach to a Marina Mist card base.
- Using an Early Espresso marker, colour the word 'congratulations' from the Perfect Punches stamp set and stamp onto a piece of Cajun Spice card stock. Trim it to 0.5cm and add just below the panel on your card.
- Now make the flower: punch a flower with the Fancy Fower punch and run it through a crimper loads of times to break down the fibres. Now you should be able to carefully peel the flower apart so that you end up with two flowers that have a soft, suede feel to them. Layer them together with glue. Now cut out a 3/4" circle with a punch and sponge the edges of it. Use to make a flower centre.
- Attach the flower to the card front with a dimensional.
Stamps: Perfect Punches
Ink: Certainly Celery (for sponging)
Card stock: Marina Mist, Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie
Other: Fancy Flower and 3/4" circle punch, Early Espresso marker
Really today's post should have been a very large card to say thank you to everyone who contacted me to say congratulations on winning the Golden Ticket to the Stampin' Up convention. Thank you so much for all the lovely things you've been saying - you made me cry, but in a good way!
Have a wonderful weekend,
