Floral Frenzy Card

100_4682 When I saw this card on Debbie Olson's Thinking Inking blog, I knew I had to make one for myself. She explains well how she cut out the rectangle with her Nestabilities. I'm sure you could also use your trimmer. I decided to run the Garden Green piece through my Swiss Dots embossing folder to add a little texture.


Here's what I did on the inside. I adhered the cut out flower with pop dots.

I wasn't quite sure how she got her bow to look so nice, so I opted to just tie a knot.

Stuff I Used:

Floral Frenzy stampset, Sweet Blush ink, Lemon Tart ink (PTI) Garden Green cardstock, and ink, white grosgrain ribbon, Friendship's Blessing stamp set for the stem of cutout flower (CTMH), Cuttlebug and pop dots.

And this concludes today's stamping session. Thankfully, the pinched nerve must be starting to heal. It wasn't quite as difficult to stamp today, but I noticed I didn't get even pressure on some images, so forgive those that you see.

I appreciate your visit and hope you have a wonderful weekend! If I am lucky, I'll go out to play again before the weekend ends.

Love your card and I would like to try it. Why has your print gotten so small? I don't want to get new glasses!

I still can't get this stupid blog thingy to work. I did install it, but by doing so created a new blog for me under windows live. I just want to post to my blog. What did I do wrong?
