This is a quick post. My DH has not been feeling real well so his heart doctor asked him to go to the hospital today for a few tests. I will be gone a good portion of the day so that means I probably won't get in any stamping today. I am posting another card I created for the Heartfelt Creations Blog post. Have you checked out all the beautiful cards created by the design team this week? Heartfelt Creations is also having an awesome sale -- 50% off on some of the Limited Edition Precut Sets and 50% off Blue Hill Studio Punches.
This is a 5.5 inch card. The designer paper used is from the Basic Grey “Cappella Paper Pad”. Six of the smallest Posy Patch flowers from the Heartfelt Creations "HCPC 3303 Posy Patch Flowers PreCut set" were stamped using purple ink onto lavender card stock. They were cut out using matching dies (HCD 701 Posy Patch Diecuts). The centers are made out of card stock. The Tim Holtz “Paper Rosette” die was used to create the rosette under the flowers. It was cut out of SU Always Artichoke card stock. Martha Stewart punches were used to punch out the fronds and branches under the flowers. One design paper was attached to the white card then a piece of trim added across the middle. A smaller piece of design paper from the same paper pad was cut. A slightly larger piece of Always Artichoke card stock was cut and the edges distressed. The two pieces were layered together. The Rosette, branches, and Posy Patch flowers were arranged on this small rectangle. Lavender pearls were added to the card. Three Martha Stewart butterflies were punched and added plus a cameo from Webster’s Pages Silhouettes.
I love the dainty look of this card.
Are you about ready for the holidays? If you get a chance, be sure and enter a card into this week's challenge at Joan's Gardens. This will be the last challenge for this year.
