Good Morning :) Last night an idea came to me for a note card using another image from "A Year of Flowers" by Melanie Muenchinger. I also entered this card in her Flower Picking Contest which ends tonight.
This was a quick and easy note card and I so like the end result :) Two of my favorite element on a card are texture and layers and I just love to combine them! For this card, I used Gina K's Pure Luxury card stock in Green Apple, In The Navy and Wine With Everything. I ran a piece of the wine card stock through the Cuttlebug using the Victoria embossing folder, and then layered onto the apple and then the navy (giving a 1/16" border of each color). I then selected one of the flowers from Mel's set, stamped in VersaMark on a piece of each color, and heat embossed using detail white embossing powder. Each flower was punched out using my Marvy square punch (pink) and then was layered onto alternating card stocks. To make the center flower stand out, I used a white layer, added some paper piercing, and adhered it to the card using pop dots. To keep the card as simple as possible, I finished with a few white brads in the opposite corners.
I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend. It's time for me to start preparing for our Super Bowl party :) Trying to squeeze 10+ people into our apartment is always so much fun LOL! At least next year we won't have this problem in the new house :)
