Crisp Layered Flowers

Good morning, Friends! I hope your weekend is off to a great start! We are in the Denver area for the last two soccer games of the season! Thankfully the roads were great and the moon shone gorgeous last night as we drove over! It was so beautiful the way the moon reflected off the snow on the mountain tops! The scenery was just as beautiful as it is during the day! Loved it! So here we are and tomorrow we will drive home and begin the week all over again! :)

Today's card was one I did with my stamp club this month. I love these colors together! Here are the details:

  • Card base is Baked Brown Sugar
  • Layer of Baked Brown Sugar that is run through the Big Shot with the Pretty Print embossing folder and then adhered to a layer of Crisp Cantaloupe
  • Tie a piece of Very Vanilla seam binding ribbon around the panel and pop up onto card
  • Stamp the flower from Mixed Bunch in Crisp Cantaloupe onto Crisp Cantaloupe and punch out with the Blossom punch
  • Stamp flower from Flower Shop in Crisp Cantaloupe onto Crisp Cantaloupe and punch out with the Pansy punch and adhere to bigger flower with dimensionals
  • Use the Little Leaves sizzle to cut leaves from Pistachio Pudding and cut apart then adhere to back of flowers and pop up onto card
  • Punch a flower from Soft Suede using the Boho Blossoms punch and adhere to flower center and add a large rhinestone
  • Stamp greeting from Petite Pairs in Soft Suede
