In Color Fun Flower Card

This Lovely Flowers DSP is so beautiful if I see a scrap of it lying around I have to make something with it right away. There’s quite a bit going on here but that’s usually the way my cards end up–I never know when to stop adding things!

The card base is Melon Mambo, one of the 2009/2010 In Colors. I stamped it with En Francais background stamp in Versamark ink, then sprinkled on Clear Embossing powder and heat embossed for a subtle raised effect.

Next, I matted a piece of Lovely Flowers DSP onto Old Olive card stock and adhered it to the card base using dimensionals.

The top layer is Crushed Curry (another In Color) matted with Whisper White, which I stamped using Happy Everything and Flower Lines, a Level 3 Hostess set. The “happy” was inked with my Melon Mambo marker, “Birthday” in Old Olive, and the flowers were also inked with my in color markers, but I stamped off before stamping onto the Whisper White each time.

To finish off the card, I stapled a piece of folded Old Olive 5/8″ grosgrain ribbon to the edge of the Crushed Curry layer and adhered it to the base using dimensionals, offset slightly to the right.
