Pink Blossoms

Hi, Diane here with you today! I have a very summery card to show you!

I made my flowers first, using the newly released
PoppyStamps Velvet Blossom. I had a bit of surprise when I cut this die, as each petal cut separately, then you put the flower together petal by petal. I loved that, it made each flower much more real!

Once the petals were cut and embossed, I colored them with Susan's Gardens Pan Panstels Flower Coloring Kit,
using the Magenta color on pink card stock. The center of the flowers and the stems also cut separately.

I cut a Spellbinders Floral Oval from white card stock. I stenciled it using Memory Box Texture Tessatina stencil,
giving a nice, soft background look.

The butterflies were cut from Heavyweight Vellum twice, one for the bottom and one for the top. The bottom piece I did not emboss. Aren't they pretty? I think they make such a statement!

The background paper is from Wild Rose Studio, and I created a bow to finish.

A few things I pretty much use daily in the making of my cards are Scor-tapeLarge and Mini Cuttlehug adapter plates, Cheery Lynn Designs Crafters Tools.

This gorgeous. I love the paper, the flowers and that beautiful bow. Wish I could tie one like that.
