Pink Flower



Okay, here is my first attemp at making one of these flowers with stamps and die cuts. I love it and hope you do too. I will make another only this time do it with orange and black dots, I noticed my tiger lillies are blooming.....I love em! Okay, here is what I did and used. First remember the corner punch I won from Joan's Garden last week, well I went ahead and bought the border punch to go with it, "Modern Garland", I love it!!! Then I cut and embossed a piece of white with the "Kassie's Brocade" folder I got from Joan's Garden. I stamped the flower petals, all 18 of them with "Open Petals" and 6 leaves from "Elegant Single Leaves". Then using the "Perfect petals Diecut" from Spellbinders I cut every thing out. Put it together and placed a brad in the center. I used foam board behind the purple and the white embossed piece. I just put lots of glue on it and stuck it on. Cheap and easy! I am going to be giving this card to a lady at work who is retiring at the end of the month. She is also a very dear friend. Every thing I used to make this card came from Joan's Garden except the card stock, brad and glue stick. Hey I could be her PR LOL. She does have wonderful stuff at great prices!!! Okay that's it for now, Gonna see what else I can get into.......
