Today I had to make a "happy" card. We are stuck in the house because it has been raining, raining, raining!!! I think the Seattle weather has spread across the state to our area for all of Spring, because we don't usually get this much rain and wind. To brighten my day, I decided to use some of my favorite things, that I love to use to create my cards. I always love to use the pretty Marianne Design embossing folders for a background, and of course, to create pretty flowers using dies or punches.
I used the Marianne Cut and Emboss folder across the top of this 5.5" x 6" card. It was backed with a piece of pink card stock to show off the cut out areas of the design. I love butterflies and chose the Memory Box "Kaleidoscope Butterfly then lined it with the matching "Moonlight Butterfly". I used a piece of pretty design paper for the aqua butterfly. Along the very bottom of the card I added the very delicate Cheery Lynn "Mini Flourish Band".
The flower was created using three different flower dies; the Cheery Lynn Miniature Rose; Sweet William; and Stacker Flower #6. I used different shades of pink card stock, then place a small Kaiser Craft Pearl in the center of it. On each side of the large flower, I added a white Cheery Lynn Medium Rose. Under the flowers I added some of the Marianne Design "Anji Leaves"; Memory Box "Chloe Stem"; and Marianne "Garden Branch". The pretty flourish at the top of the flower is the MFT "Fancy Flourish".
