Love in Bloom

Hi everyone!  Today I'm sharing a bright cheerful card bursting with colorful blooms using the Creative Cafe' KOTM for August--Farm Fresh!

Base: 5&1/2" by 4&1/4" red cardstock

First Layer: 5&1/4" by 4" piece of floral patterned paper

Next Layer: 4" by 2&1/2' piece of green patterned paper, stamp flower background using Versamark TIP:  this is a great way to make your own background paper to match your project....especially if you are looking for an exact match, or like my card....just a more subtle pattern:

Then mat this piece on a 4&1/4" by 2&3/4" piece of kraft cardstock.

Stamp flower trio in Black Tuxedo Memento ink on white cardstock three times.  Color 1 of the three large flowers on each, and one small flower, then fussy cut these out.  You can color and cut out extra leaves if you'd like.

Create a banner using red and kraft cardstock, glue to upper left corner of green panel piece and add 2 large and 1 small flower using Scrap Happy Glue and foam tape for the top flower.

Stamp the floral bouquet twice in Black Tuxedo Memento ink on white cardstock.  Color one entire
image, and just the newspaper on the second one.  Fussy cut out, then foam tape the newspaper piece over the fully colored image.  Tie up with green jute twine.  Glue bouquet to a 3&1/2" by 2" piece of kraft cardstock, that is matted on a 3&3/4" by 2&1/4" piece of red cardstock.

Glue both panels to card front at a slight angle.

Stamp sentiment using Black Tuxedo Memento ink on kraft cardstock, punch out using a 1" circle punch, mat on a 1&1/4" piece of red cardstock.  Foam tape to card, add flower created before using foam tape.  Add pearls to finish.

Thanks for stoppin' by today!  Hope you are enjoying all the inspiration using this fun new kit!  Stop back soon.....we have so much more to come!
