Cherry Blossoms

Hello Everyone!  Today I would like to share with you a quick and easy card I made using some new stuff that is available in The Rubber Cafe store! Cherry Blossoms have always been a favorite of mine and I thought they would make a great get well card.

Here is how I made this card.  First I stamped the Woodgrain background stamp onto some Kraft cardstock using Old Paper Distress Ink.

Then I cut/embossed the die cuts I wanted to use for the card.  I used the Cherry Blossoms Shapeabilities, Card Creator A-2 Matting Basics A and Card Creator A-2 Fancy Weave.  After cutting/embossing the cherry blossoms I sponged some Victorian Velvet Distress Ink around the edges of the flowers.  I also stamped the Get Well sentiment from Fabulous Phrases using some brown ink.

I layered the fancy weave die cut underneath the card creator die cut for alittle bit of a different look.  I used Scrap Happy Sheer Glue to adhere everything together.  I added some Pearl Jellie Dots and a couple of rhinestones to the middle of the cherry blossoms. 

To finish the card I added the sentiment panel, some lacey ribbon and adhere everything to the base of my square card.  Here it is again!

So don't you love the Cherry Blossoms as much as I do?  I can already tell its my new favorite.  Hope you have a great day!
