I was so excited when I finally got this bundle in my greedy little hands! Unfortunately, it was a few days before I could get some creating done with it. Here is what I finally came up with:
I knew I wanted to use the Large Polka Dot embossing folder on a crispy Whisper White background. But, when I set all the flowers and leaves against that background, it fell way short. I hate to admit it, but I rarely use Washi Tape in my work lately. I don't know why. It is so versatile and easy to work with.
So, on a whim, before mounting my embossed piece to the card base, I added three strips of the Washi Tape from the Retro Fresh set (found on page 190). Adorable, wouldn't you say?
I used the retired Curly Cute stamp set for my sentiment and cut it out with one of the Framelits from the Project Life Cards & Labels set (page 230). The white-against-white wasn't striking enough. So, I cut a piece of cardstock to act as a little mat for the label, and edged the top and bottom with more of the Washi Tape.
When seen from the front, the flowers show lots of dimension. But . . .
. . . from the side, those flower layers really P.O.P.!
Why don't you consider joining me in the Flower Patch and order a bundle for yourself? I would love to be your demonstrator!
This is beautiful, you did a great job! :-)ReplyDelete
I have the bundle and have been pinning like mad. I haven't felt up to doing much with anything but I wanted to be prepared. Your card is so cute, I love the washi you used on it and of course the flowers.ReplyDelete
