Big and Bold Thank You

April 7, 2010 at 9:07 pm Leave a comment

I made a few cards over the past couple of days but I haven’t had a chance to post them. I made this Clean and Simple Fall to Layout 84 card using Paper Trey Ink’s Big and Bold Wishes stamp set. I combined the Clean & Simple sketch with this week’s SCS’s CAS challenge , which called for us to focus on sentiments. I had seen a few cards on SCS with big and fluffy-looking paper flowers so I thought I’d try my hand at making something like that. I punched white and pink polka dot paper with Stampin’ Up!’s scallop punch 10 times and secured them with a small brad. Unfortunately, I took the picture at night, so it has some shadows on it. I used a large circle punch and cut some Regal Rose circles then halved them. I had to overlap them slightly and then I tied Regal Rose 5/8″ grosgrain ribbon around the card. I scrunched up the flower and adhered a small button from Gina K. in the centre. I layed the flower on a panel of White, Regal Rose and Basic Black CS. I stuck some black self-adhesive rhinestones to each corner for a little more bling, even though I know I’m supposed to keep the card Clean and Simple. I stamped the sentiment in Momento Tuxedo Black ink. It is doubtful this card will fit into an envelop, so I’ll have to hand-deliver this to someone. I hope you like it!
