Something Sweet

I wanted to make a card that was very delicate, feminine and sweet. I really like the Stampin' Up! set "Sassy Stems" and I thought I would work in the new decorative papers with it. Don't you love it that you can order just one color in a package??? I like this because I tend to lean towards a favorite color and have a lot of the other colors just sitting there.

For this card I used Staz-on Black ink for the flower. I colored it in with markers, Almost Amethyst, a little Lovely Lilac and the leaf and stems were colored in with Sage Shadow. I stamped the flower and then trimmed it down on the paper cutter. I sponged the edges in Almost Amethyst and then added the other layers. I used Dimensionals to affix it to the front of the card. I tied an organza bow around it before affixing it to the card front. The front was done using two different prints of the new designer paper. The white scallop was made by using the Slit punch. I saw a tutorial on this somewhere and have loved using it! There is not a lot of coloring to this card at all, just the flower and a little bit of sponging. Decorative papers make card making a quicker process!


Thank you for stopping by and
have a safe and Happy 4th!

Wow, I love this card. I need to get some staz on so that when I blend in my colors they don't run together. I love the scallop design you have seperating your polka dot paper from your other background.. Great job!!
