Blossom Party CCMC254

What a lovely color scheme Create with Connie and Mary has today:  So Saffron, Pool Party and Island Indigo!  I'm not sure where my idea for this card came from... it just appeared in my head one evening and I'm happy with the way it turned out!

I had so much fun with the Blossom Party Die a couple of weeks ago that I decided to use it again, only this time, it is the smallest flower on the die, a 1-3/8" daisy-like flower.

I used a Whisper White card then embossed another white layer with the Delicate Designs scallop edge Embossing Folder on both the top and bottom edges.  That left an area in between for my flowers.  I diecut three of each color flower (it's easy to do because you can cut maybe five or six layers of Stampin' Up! quality cardstock at a time on this die) and attached them, rotating the layers.  The two outside flowers are centered  with an In Color Printed Brad and a small flower punched using the BoHo Blossoms Punch.


The center flower has a punch out then a So Saffron flower button from the Designer Subtles Collection, tied with Linen Thread.  Each flower is layered on a 1-5/8" colored cardstock square layered with a 1-1/2" Whisper White square that has been embossed with the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder.


The tag is stamped with "best" from the Fabulous Phrases set and punched out with the retiring Jewelry Tag Punch.

Here again are the colors for today's challenge from Create with Connie and Mary; aren't they pretty together?!

Now it's your turn to create!  Make your card using these colors and the guidelines on the Create with Connie and Mary website, then upload it to your blog or other public online location.  Then go back to the CCMC website and link your card there!

Be sure and check out what all the other CCMC designers have done with these colors!  They are super paper artists!

Thanks for visiting!  I appreciate it!

Love the flowers and all the textures on this card! Such a pretty card! Using the three squares in the center of the card has always been a favorite layout of mine.
