Happy Spring Peeps! Hard to believe that March is almost over! I am sooooo ready for some warmer weather.
Today's card is made with some of the Cherry Blossom flowers I had left over from the card I made at my friend Lois' house on Sunday. I used the same colors and Designer paper.
The base of the card is riding hood red cut at 4-1/4 by 8-1/2 inches and folded in half. I followed that with some close to cocoa and then some of the DS paper from the Candy Lane DS paper. I wanted to keep the center elements fairly small as not to cover up the pretty BG designer paper. It is made up of riding hood red that I used the lace edge punch on one side followed by some more of the DS paper from the same pack. I followed that with a small horizontal piece of riding hood red and some more DS paper. The flower element starts with a very vanilla scallop circle that I ran through the cuddlebug with my swiss dot embossing folder. Then the leaves are made with my 5 petal flower punch and cut it up to make leaves, I scored lines down the center of the leaves with my bone folder. The flower itself is riding hood red and is two blossoms, one is cut down and sponged and layered onto the other with dimensionals. I topped it off with a Martha Stewart sticky pearl.
The sentiment is from the Small Sayings set and is stamped with riding hood red ink onto very vanilla card stock. I hand cut the banner end. I added a flower brad to the sentiment piece and silver brads to the corners. The pink pirouette ribbon is attached to the corner with a small spiral clip. The whole mail panel is attached to the base with more dimensionals.
Well, That is all for today, thanks again for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!
