Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #567 Parcels & Petals

Hello to you today!  It's the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge # 567.  We have a color challenge.  We are using Poppy Parade, Calypso Coral, and Granny Apple Green.


Here is my card for this challenge.  I used the Parcels & Petals stamp set and the Perfect Parcels Dies.

I do say lots of times that I love a card.  I do love this one.  I didn't think that Poppy Parade and Calypso Coral would work, but it certainly does.

My card base is Poppy Parade that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded in half at 4 1/4.  The next layer is  Granny Apple Green cut at 3 3/4 x 5.  The Whisper White layer is 3 5/8 x 4 7/8.  Run it through your die machine with the Tin Tile Embossing Folder.  That folder makes your card just a little fancier, doesn't it!

The design behind the flowers was cut using the Perfect Parcels Dies.  I love the detail in the die.  It does work perfectly with the Tin Tile background.

The flowers are stamped using the Parcels & Petals stamp set.  I used the big stamp that has the three flowers.  Stamp in Poppy Parade and in stamped off Poppy Parade.  Stamp in Calypso Coral and stamped off Calypso Coral.    Fussy cut lots of flowers.  I got the idea to cut these out and layer them from the sample on page 27 of the catalog.  Our catalog has so many beautiful samples and so many ideas.  I catch myself just looking through there all the time for all the little details. 

Use a Bone Folder to curl up the ends of the petals of the flowers.

Stamp lots of leaves in Granny Apple Green and cut these out.

Give each flower at least two layers.  Mix and match the colors.  I used glue dots.  Add in leaves where you think they need to be.  Add Basic Pearls to the center of the flowers.  Arrange on the card.

The sentiment is from the Parcels & Petals stamps set.  Stamp in Calypso Coral and trim.

Here is how I finished the inside of the card.  It's all from the Parcel & Petals stamp set.  I did tape off the other 2 flowers from the three flower stamp and just stamp the one flower.
