This card was designed for my Coffee and Card group using the FREE Sale-a-bration designer series paper ‘Dainty Flowers’ to make a Dainty Flowers Birthday card.
They coordinate with a bundle from the January to June mini catalogue called Dainty Delight. I don’t have the bundle, but honestly…I didn’t need it! The papers do all the work for you.They really are so pretty!
I made this sample card to show the group what we were making and used papers from the Tea Boutique collection as my background paper. However, if I’d looked more carefully there was a coordinating paper I could have used from the Dainty Flowers paper selection.
I used the retired triple punch to shape the corners of the oval flower paper and also the white inner.
The sentiment was from Framed Florets stamp set and this was die cut using a die from the retired Seasonal labels dies.
Thanks a Bunch
As we make 2 cards each week at the Coffee and Card group, I thought I’d also show you the other card we made;
I had seen a similar card to the one pictured above by EMKcreations on pinterest and decided that I just had to case the idea .
The background papers are from my (far too big) retired collection of papers that I am trying to use up.
The upside down carrots make fabulous trees. These were stamped in Evening Evergreen (first and second generation stamping) and Garden Green (first and second generation stamping). I used the ‘A dark’ skin tone for the trunks of the trees, and the grass is Pear Pizzazz.
