Flowers are my weakness, I am always drawn to those stamp sets with flowers, but as I explained in a post the other day – I ration myself otherwise I would have nothing but flowers in my stash. So when I ordered a set the other week I deliberately chose a set that had flowers but other things as well – Grown with Love has a little cart, flower-pot and watering can as well as flowers and best yet it has coordinating dies which make it a snap to cut everything out with my Big Shot.
The fold of this card was inspired by Dawn Griffin ~ the little pot of flowers are attached to the ‘arm’ of card, so I have dubbed it the ‘Arm Fold’ I think this card would be great for a gardener!
Card base: 9 1/2 x 4 1/8 Sahara Sand Card ~ scored @ 4 1/8
Layer 1: 5 1/5 x 4 1/4 Flirty Flamingo, this is attached to the back of the Sahara Sand card base.
Layer 2: 4 x 4 Whisper White Card
Layer 3: 3 7/8 x 3 7/8 Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper
Arm: 4 x 1 1/4 Sahara Sand ~ scored @ 1″
Ink Colors: Sahara Sand ink pad, Flirty Flamingo and Emerald Envy Stampin’ Markers.
I used the markers to color the stamp for the flowers, this allowed me to do the leaves in Emerald Envy and the flowers and greeting in Flirty Flamingo. I simply laid the color onto the stamp using the ‘brush’ end of the marker, taking card not to go over the edges. Once both colors are applied you ‘huff’ on the stamp to add a little moisture then stamp on Whisper White Card. I used the framelits to cut out the flowers.
The framelit set also cut out the flower-pot ~ if you buy the stamp set and dies as a bundle you will save 10% – there is a link below for you to make your choices.
