Hi & hello!
Today's card is created for the Embellish-Online.com Friday Free For All Challenge. I am hostess this week and my challenge for you is to make a shaped card with a summer theme. I thought of sunshine and flowers and here is the result!
My card is very simple today: the flower shape is new Spellbinders Blossom die cut, which is very similar to the Nested Flowers, but this has 6 dies instead of 3 in the set, and more petals that do not go so deep into the paper. The patterned paper is This Little Piggie from the American Crafts Baby collection. The pattern is the perfect size for the May Arts 1/8 inch Ric Rac trim. I added the trim with 1/8 inch Wonder Tape, then die cut the flower shape onto the paper. It cut right through.
Designer Tip: I use Dritz Fray Check on the end of my ribbon and trim to prevent fraying. It dries clear and really works. I got it for $2 on eBay.
The flower is cut from Mary Quite Contrary patterned paper. I added a Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch paper butterfly with a turquoise crystal for a bit of bling.
