Creative Elements Flower Card

This is one of the cards we created at the Birthday / Thank you card class this month. I think this one is my favorite. I love the soft colors on this card. It does look better in person. We stamped the flower 3 times and cut out first the whole thing, then the next layer in and finally just the center. That gives the flower such dimension.

Here is the recipe:
Creative Elements stamp set
Soft Suede and Pink Pirouette (sponging only the flowers) stamp pads
Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla card stock
Mocha Morning Specialty and Beau Chateau Designer Paper
Perfect Pennants die cut (for scallop circle with cut outs)
Victoria Crochet trim, Very Vanilla 5/8" satin ribbon and Very Vanilla 1/8' taffeta ribbon
Basic Pearls


Sure hope that you enjoyed your visit today. God Bless you and your family.

I had purchased it but had not played with it yet. I have seen quite a few samples, so I decided to get it out and play with it. We are also using it this Saturday at the Birthday / Thank you Card Class.

Here is the recipe:
Soft Suede, Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz and Very Vanilla card stock
Spice Cake designer paper
Houndstooth emboss folder
Scallop Oval and Ex Large Oval punches
Cool Party 3/8" ruffled ribbon
Metallic Brads (antique brass)

Sure hope that you enjoyed your visit. God Bless you and your family.
