I needed to make a birthday card very quickly the other day so I thought I’d show you what I came up with. It was so easy to make this card I made a few at a time. I just used various shades of pink C6 cards and added some Whisper White (10cm x 14.2cm) which I’d embossed with my Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.
I stamped a bunch of images from the Stampin’ Up! quintessential flower stamp – in Pretty in Pink, Blushing Bride (retired but about to return!), Rose Red and Melon Mambo.
I then punched out at least one colour each of the various flowers/circles in the image using my 2 3/8 scallop punch, 1 3/4 scallop punch, mini scallop punch and 1 inch circle punch. Then just mix n match, layering up with Snail glue and dimensionals. I popped a Glimmer brad and some pink pearls I found at a $2 dollar shop in the centre, but you could also use pearls and rhinestones.
Here’s a close up of some of the flowers. I think they would also work really well on gift tags or even stuck directly onto a gift wrapped present.
Looking at these pictures I think next time I use this flower I am going to have to put some bling in those little dots around the edge of the widest flower!
I hope you enjoy.
