Today’s card was a fun experiment in making “crumpled” flowers.
I knew I needed six flowers, because of the Paper Player’s challenge.
I began by using the Sale-A-Bration, Small Bloom Punch, to cut my flowers from Highland Heather Cardstock. To make the flowers “crumpled,” I wet them under a faucet, rolled them into tiny balls, and carefully unfolded them. Yes, I was careful, but this Cardstock is stronger than you think. After shaping them a bit, I let them dry overnight.
The following day, I added Faceted Dots to the flower’s centers, and placed them on Mini-Dimensionals. Then, I used Poppy Moments Dies to cut their leaves from Pear Pizzazz Cardstock.
The background was made with Best Dressed 6X6 Designer Paper on a Seaside Spray card base.
“Thanks” was made with a Well Written Die, cut from a Black Foil Sheet. I think this paper looks like Patent Leather, which is a nice, shiny, contrast to the pastel colors.
If you look at the Small Bloom Punch in my Product List below, you’ll see the price is $0.00. That’s because it’s FREE with a 100.00 order, through March 31, as long as supplies last.
Sale-A-Bration is a great time to order, because of the FREE products you can earn. It’s also a great time to join Stampin’ Up! for additional benefits and products with your Starter Kit.
