CCMC 321

Good morning! It's Thursday and time for another challenge from the Create with Connie and Mary team! This week we have a sketch for you!

I have to admit that I stared at this sketch for a long time. Yes, the strips are easy enough - washi tape, dsp, stamps... But I could figure out what to do after that! Ugh! Nothing I did seemed to look right. Everything seemed so unbalanced. Finally this came together and I was satisfied!

I hadn't used my Flower Patch stamps all that much so that's what I went with! I wanted to use some fall like colors to go with the time of year. 

  • Card base is Whisper White
  • On another piece of Whisper White, adhere two pieces of the Color Me Autumn washi tape
  • Stamp the greeting from Flower Patch onto the panel using Blackberry Bliss ink then adhere panel to card with dimensionals
  • Stamp the main flower image onto a piece of Whisper White using Hello Honey ink and the center part using Soft Suede ink then cut out using the Flower Fair framelits
  • Stamp the leaves onto a piece of Whisper White using Mossy Meadow ink and cut out using the Flower Fair framelits
  • Adhere the leaves to the back of the flower then adhere flower to card with dimensionals
  • Thread a piece of linen thread through a gold basic metal button and tie a bow then adhere to flower center
