7/8 Simply Said Posies


I recently made this card in fond farewell of the Trio Flower Punch. I love how it turned out. It was also my first time to use Concord Crush . . . I think it looks great with Always Artichoke. I stamped the flowers with Basic Black onto my Shimmery White panel as well as along the bottom of the Artichoke panel. I used the Concord Crush marker to color just the centers of the flowers and used a blender pen to pull the color outward. Since the center stayed a little darker than I wanted it to be, I just added a bit white gel pen over the top of the flower centers. I also used the gel pen on the flowers I punched out as well as the flowers stamped on the Always Artichoke. I used the Big Shot with the Elegant Bouquet Impressions Folder.


The little heart accent is from the stamp set called Itty Bitty Bits. Cute little images that coordinate with the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack which in turn coordinate with the clear Bitty Buttons. I dangled the button from my ribbon with some Linen Thread. The inside of my card has a panel that reflects the format of the front panel. You can see that I also put a sweet little heart from Itty Bitty Bits on one of the flowers. Cute, cute, cute!

There is nothing so crisp and clean as navy and white. Love the little flowers inside and out. Very pretty card (that I just might add to my favorites!).
See you soon!
