Wednesday Primrose Petals Wishes
Well, we're half way through the week. Today I have for you a card and I based it on three challenges: CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #60, Sunday Stamps Challenge #7 and Freshly Made Sketches #43. Here's how it all came together.
I started with Basic Gray card stock for the base. The front was run through the Big Shot with the Fancy Fan embossing folder. A piece of Basic Gray designer paper was matted with
Summer Starfruit card stock (love that color). I tied a piece of Primrose Petals ribbon around
it to make a simple knot bow. The layer was then added to the card. I then matted a piece of Comfort Cafe designer paper with Summer Starfruit card stock and attached it to the card. The flower from the Decorate a Daisy
stamp set was heat embossed twice on Primrose Petals card stock with VersaMark,
Primrose Petals ink, and clear embossing powder. I first cut one out around the whole flower and then just cut out the smaller inside flower from the second one. The
first one was attached with glue dots to a piece of Very Vanilla card stock that was matted with Summer Starfruit card stock. The four corners on both were rounded with a 3/16" Corner Punch. The second smaller flower was added
to the first with dimensionals and I curled the ends a little. The sentiment from the same stamp set was also heat embossed on Very Vanilla card stock using VersaMark, Primrose Petals ink and clear embossing powder. It was punched out with the 1-1/4" Circle Punch and popped up with dimensionals also. I colored Pearls with the Summer Starfruit marker after coating them with Mod Podge. What great words used in this sentiment. This would make a great friend, birthday, or thinking of you card. Thanks for visiting today. I hope you get a chance to come back again. Have a fun day; be creative.
