Good Monday morning. I hope you have a good weekend and Happy Easter.
I had been wanting to play with my new Flower Frenzy Die for a while, it sports five different sizes and shapes of 5-petal flowers, a leaf, a double vine shape with leaves, a smallish circle, and what looks like a jack shape. This weekend I came across several scraps of Stacked With Love Designer Series Paper on my work table and that is how this Spring inspired Flower Frenzy Gift set came about. I created three cards and an altered Mini Treat Bag card holder. Today’s post is the first of the three cards. The base is a long & narrow card in Pear Pizzazz. The wide stripe is from the Stacked With Love Designer Series Paper Stack, I just love that one side is all black & white designs and the other is Valentine inspired designs and colors (way more usable then just for Valentine’s Day though). The double leaf band is Old Olive sponged with Pear Pizzazz. [TIP: I glued these to a 3/4″ wide strip to help align and keep them together (really I wasn’t sure how it would turn out so I didn’t want to commit. Lol!)] The flower is the three largest flower shapes (in Calypso Coral) that I sponged on both sides and curled the edges inward to give more depth. [TIP: If you curl them in too much it looks more like a dried flower.] I also offset each flower to give even more depth as well. The center is from the Artisan Embellishment Kit. As soon as i placed it on the flower it just came to life. The sentiment (from Teeny Tiny Wishes) is Pear Pizzazz stamped with Old Olive and punched from the Word Window punch.
Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed the first of my four designs created from the Flower Frenzy Bigz L Die and Stacked With Love Designer Series Paper Stack. Make sure to come back Wednesday to see the next design! Have a great Monday and I would love to hear your comments.
