SC165 Die-cut Blooms


Hope everybody is having a wonderful Sunday???

The weather here in Georgia is gorgeous...we have sunshine and the temperatures are 74 Fahrenheit - can't complain about a day like this....

This inspired me to make a card for Beate's WSC #37. The layout is just wonderful and I had to try it.

I also was inspired by Beate's card she made for the SC#165 where she used the great new "Die-cut Blooms" which are featured in the new Occassion Mini Collection on Page #14.

For my card I wanted to use these Blooms as well...and these colors are really bright and cheerful!!! So I started with Pumkin Pie as my base and added a piece of Real Read and Old Olive CS to it. The main image was placed on Whisper White and layered onto Pumkin Pie CS plus it was raised with Stampin Dimensionals and before I place it on the card I added the new cute Striped Grosgrain Ribbon on the side.

The large red flower was dotted with the Uni Gel Pen. Then I added a smaller circle tag and placed a smaller Pumkin Pie flower on top. To finish it off - I punched out a 1/2" Old Olive circle and centered a red Rhinestone Brad in the middle. Everything was raised with Stampin Dimensionals - that gives it a great 3-D look!!!

With this card there is not much stamping involved...I only added the "Happy Birthday" sentiment from the "A Little Birthday Cheer" Set. That's it - it took me about 10 Minutes to create this card - not bad!!! ~TFL!!!~
