It's time for another Joan's Garden's Thursday Challenge. The challenge this week is to create a card or project with a pretty Floral DP and a Martha Stewart Border and Corner Punch.
My pretty floral design paper is from the Basic Grey "Cappella" paper pad. There are so many beautiful papers in this one. I cut my ivory card stock to make a 5.5" square card. A piece of black cs was cut and corners rounded. The Martha Stewart Border and Corner Punch I decided to use for the challenge is called "Lattice". I started with a five inch square piece of green card stock and punched all four corners. Then using the border punch had to punch twice in between each corner to get my pretty frame. A piece of the Cappella dp was placed in the center.
Three JustRite stamps sets were used for this card: "My Garden"," Decorative Frames" and "Loving Thoughts". The flowers from "My Garden" were stamped twice and cut out. Three of the flowers from the second stamped image were cut out to be added with dimensionals. They were stamped using Vivid brown ink then sponged with Close to Cocoa ink. A small amount of green was added in the center of each flower with a Copic marker then a black pearl added. The frame from "Decorative Frames" and verse from "Loving Thoughts" was black embossed on ivory card stock then sponged with brown ink. It was matted on a piece of black card stock and attached to the center of the card with dimensionals. A green satin bow was added and three pearls that were colored with Copic markers added to finish off the card. The pearls look darker in the photo than they do on the card.
All products used to create this card were purchased from Joan's Gardens.
