Chris' Flower Challenge

This is Chrissy D here. Welcome to the Classy Cards 'n Such Blog! Today I am sharing my CHALLENGE CARD! This week's challenge is FLOWERS! I tried to use flowers on every part of my card! Beverly has such a beautiful variety of flower papers3-D Art, stamps, dies and flowers - so much to choose from!!

 I hope you will join us. You can see the entire Design Team's challenge cards HERE.

Here are the details for my card. I created a Criss Cross Card with 2 sheets of light blue cardstock. Each cardstock measures 5 1/2" x 8 1/2". I layered the Bo Bunny Gabrielle Collection patterned papers on the blue card stock.

Using the JustRite Botanical Butterflies set I stamped in chocolate ink and colored with Copic colors Y21, Y11, Y26, G21, G24, YG17.

I used the following dies and cut them out using my die cut machine in brown, pale yellow and vanilla cardstock: Large Circles Spellbinders, Blossoms Three, and Cheery Lynn Designs Fanciful Flourish. Using pop dots, I added dimension by putting the dots between the layers of chocolate and vanilla cardstock.

Once everything was adhered together, I added some Gold Stickles to jazz it up a bit more. Using mini glue dots, I adhered the Tea Roses Latte flower and added a few Wild Orchid Flowers and leaves to the side to create more balance.

I created a pocket for my card with celery cardstock measuring 3 3/4" x 5" and added a white layer measuring 3 1/2" x 4 3/4". I stamped the flower spring on the corners and colored them with B21, G21 Copic markers. Using a rounded tab punch, I added a pull tab and attached it to the top portion using a 1/16th" hole punch and gold brad.

I hope you enjoyed my project today! Please join us in our challenge!   We would love to see you participate!
