Flowers of Best Wishes

I’m still working on a box of cards for my Mother-in-Law.  I’ve become grateful for her December birthday because I have the ability to switch up her birthday and Christmas gift.  That will give me some extra time in getting all the cards done!

I’m sharing with you today, one of the cards that  will be going in her box for Christmas! Front View This card was inspired by rectangles that I saw stamped on cards.  Amazing how your mind moves when you are creating!

How did I do that?

The top layer was created by adhering various rectangles that were sponged and distressed along the edges to a plain piece of Very Vanilla. This layer was then popped up with dimensionals.

Side AngleThe flower was created by crumpling 5 stamped scallop circles, sponging them and snipping between each scallop almost to the center.  A beautiful neutral glitter brad was inserted in the center

Stamps: Sincere Salutations, Established Elegance
Paper: Very Vanilla
Ink: Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler 
Accessories: Cherry Cobbler Quilted Ribbon
Tools: Distressing Tool, Sponges, Scallop Circle Punch, Paper Snips, Dimensionals
Technique(s): Sponging

Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy!

  1. Ohhhh look how gorgeous. I like the snipped flower; I've never done it that way and it really adds to the look. You are wonderful for sharing.

    PS - I'm casing this beauty replacing the flower with a snowflake. I'll post it if it turns out; otherwise if you don't see it you know its in that big trash bag next to my craft table. LOL LOL
