DivaSC169 Floral Fusion

It's New Year's Eve and time to party! Party with paper, that is! It's time to pull out those "I-know-I-can-use-these" box of scraps or that favorite stamp and try this weekend's sketch. The challenge is simply to create a card using the same shape or image repeatedly. I can't wait to see what you come up with so - please - link to your project (in a comment) if you play along.

This design has been floating around in my brain for a while. In a way, it makes me think of the Sesame Street short, "One of these things is not like the other...". But I don't own that stamp (HA!)  so instead it will serve as a way to tell someone that I think they are special...in a good way...

Project Details:
  • Flowers are die cuts, cut using the Floral Fusion Sizzlit die. The die cuts all 3 sizes of the flower at the same time, making quick work of building your flower. 
  • Use a Bone Folder or the blunt edge of scissors to slightly curl the petals up. Add even more texture by crumpling the flower layers, sponging the edges with color or with an embossing folder. I was going for the clean-and-simple, easy-to-mail look so very little was done to the flowers.
  • Use those scraps! The flowers shown here are some of our In-Colors: Poppy Parade (the special flower), Pool Party, Island Indigo and Concord Crush
  • Jewels Basic Pearls complete each flower; shown are the largest of the 3 sizes you receive in each package of our pearls. Since they already have adhesive on the back, you literally just peel and stick these pearls in place. Love it! 
  • For you digital designers out there, did you know that the Pearls and Rhinestones are also available as a digital download? Get both designs for only $1.95
