Create with Connie and Mary Thurday Challenge #565 Floral Essence

Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #565.  This week we are using the colors Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape, and Daffodil Delight.


These colors work so well together.  Here is my card.

CCMC #565 Floral Essence by Jo Anne Hewins

I love how bright it is!  This card starts with a card base of Gorgeous Grape that measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

The patterned paper is from the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper cut at 4 x 5 1/4.  Run this through your embossing machine with the Subtles Embossing Folder.  That adds just a little texture to your card.

The flowers are from the Floral Essence stamp set.  Stamp three of the smaller flowers in Highland Heather and 2 of the larger flowers in Gorgeous Grape.  Since these are solid stamps, you might choose to use your Stamparatus.  Since I had just reinked my pads, I just stamped them.  The centers of the flowers are stamped in Daffodil Delight.  You will need to fussy cut the flowers.

The saying is from the Floral Essence stamp set, too.  Stamp on Whisper White with Gorgeous Grape.  Cut this out using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  

Tie a length of the Gorgeous Grape Mini Striped Ribbon around the card and tie a bow.  Be sure to look at my video for a tip on tying the bow a little easier.

Lay all of the pieces down on the card and determine where you want them to be.  I went ahead and attached the flowers that are on top of the label with glue dots.  While keeping this in place, go ahead and attach the flowers that will go under the label.  Now turn the label over and add dimensionals over it and the flowers.  Turn and attach.

Since the Bird Ballad paper has little bird feet, I added a Gorgeous Grape bird cut from the Well Written Dies.

Here's the inside of the card.  The words are from the Hugs from Shelli May Paper Pumpkin kit.  I love that stamp set!  Stamp another flower in the corner.

Here is a video that shows how to make this card.
