Today I’m featuring the second of four cards we made in my class last week using the Tropical Escape and Petal Promenade designer series papers. This card uses one of the beautiful Petal Promenade papers. I also used the floral die from the Springtime Impressions Thinlits Dies, which is part of the Garden Impressions Suite.
I cut a piece of Grapefruit Grove cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 11″ for the card base. Next I cut a piece of the designer paper at 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″. I die cut the floral image using a piece of Petal Pink cardstock and attached it to the designer paper using the fine-tip glue pen. I then attached this to the card base. Next I stamped the beautiful day greeting from the Love What You Do stamp set with Grapefruit Grove ink onto Whisper White cardstock. I also stamped one of the small floral images from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set next to the greeting.
I cut the greeting using one of the circles from the Layering Circles Framelits and then cut a larger circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits with a piece of the Grapefruit Grove cardstock and attached them together and then attached it to the card. I added a small Grapefruit Grove faceted dot to the small flower for a little touch of bling. I cut a 1/2″ x 4″ strip of designer paper and attached it to the bottom of a 4″x 5 1/4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock for the inside of the card.
