Kate's ABCs Flower


This is a card I made for my friend Kelly.  It's a large card, 5"x7" ... I wanted lots of room for that flower. I used the Kate's ABCs Cricut cartridge for the flower. I cut the layers at 3.5", 3", 2.5", 2" and 1.5", spritzed them all with Juneberry Wine Glimmer Mist and then scrunched them up a bit. There's a pop dot between each layer, so the flower has a lot of dimension.  I added a self-adhesive pearl and finished it with leaves made using a Martha Stewart punch. The flower is layered over a a Bo Bunny chipboard swirl, a doily (inked with with Tim Holtz Antique Linen distress ink and Stampin' Up Champagne Mist shimmer ink), and a little pearl trim. 


On the inside, I used a Verve sentiment stamp, added a Bo Bunny chipboard flower and a self-adhesive pearl, and layered this over the little extra piece of doily that I used on the front of the card.


I'm very happy with this one ... it's perfect for Kelly! Hope you like it too.


Thanks for stopping by ...

OH MY GOSH, how completely and totally gorgeous. That is by far one of the most beautiful cards I've ever seen. I struggle making more adult like cards and I may have to scraplift this idea. You did awesome.
God Bless
