More Flower & Embossing Fun


I made this card recently and decided to make another card with the same CB ef, but for this version I used smaller flowers in turquoise colors. The flowers were done with a SU! mini punch, and all I did was pierce holes around the rectangle portion and attach them with white mini brads. The sentiment is SU! Sincere Salutations done in turquoise ink.

I used 2 left-over narrow strips of turquoise card stock to make all those bitty flowers, so I made good use of some snippets for this card.

This is headed to the Snippets Playground #119.

ETA: this card was made for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge to make a birthday card, but the links were closed early. Today they've re-opened the links, so I'll link it up as I tried to do yesterday!

Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by!

Carol, what a pretty way to wish a happy birthday. The embossing folder is so pretty and I love the way you framed the sentiment with the sweet flowers.

A beautiful card full of embossing and punched flowers Carol. Great idea.

And that's just what small snippet strips are terrific for - our little punches.

Hugs, Sarn xxx

You have more patience than me it seems but all those little flowers are wonderful the way they frame out the sentiment. Love that embossing folder too.

You have earned your snippets spot my dear...I forsee a showcase of this beauty.

I have a teensy flower and teensy brad card coming up next week. It was fun but sure makes your hands sore making too many of those tiny flowers, eh?

Great card, Carol!

Carol, this is just as pretty as the other one you made, but I would have never had the patience to sit and pierce all those holes and use all those brads. My hat is off to you. Have a fantastic day.
