Summer Card Camp - Color Combo #3


This is the last card i made for this weeks color combo. CAS-Friday challenge this week if for a shaped card, and the 1st card i designed in my head was this one, but it really isn;t a CAS kind of card. So i came up with another card for that challenge, but this was still in my head and i really wanted to see if it would come out like i pictured it. And i have to say it came out really good!

I used a spellbinder flower dies. I cut 2 out of white cardstock with the largest die. Then i cut a whole bunch from orange and pink cardstock and pattern paper. I used all scraps from my scrap file. After cutting them, i wadded each one up like i was going to throw them away.

After they were all wrinkle i layered them and used a brad to secure all the layers. From yellow cardstock i used a tiny sun punch and pinched each one, then added them to the center. I added just a touch of glitter glue to some of the flower edges.

For leaves i die cut 2 from green cardstock and pattern paper. I adhered these 1st to my cardbase then adhered the flower. I stamped hello 3 times on a tiny tag and added it to the flower.

Thanks for stopping in and stay cool!!

  1. What a stunningly beautiful card. I admire your success in creating such a magnificent bloom. When I do this, it always ends up looking like I should just throw it out after I've scrunched it. Lol. I will try again after being inspired by this lovely card. :-)

  2. I hope you don't mind it I scraplift this card. The card is beautiful and yet a very simple result. Great job!

  3. GORGEOUS! A wonderful take on the colors and this flower is fab!! :)

  4. What a superduper awesome card!! I was wondering when you were going to show us the card and then I realised....It is hiding behind the pretty flower! Great job!!
