I used the Petal Potpourri and Sassy Salutations stamp sets from Stampin’ Up! to create my card to share today.
My card design was inspired by Retrosketches #155. Since this sketch had part of the focal image that was over the top of the card, I made the card base a little smaller than normal so that the finished card would still fit in an A2 envelope. I cut the card base to 5-1/2″ x 7-1/2″ and scored it at 3-3/4″.
I started by stamping the sentiment from the Sassy Salutations stamp set in Blackberry Bliss ink on a panel from the Painted Blooms DSP pack. I adhered the stamped panel and another smaller strip of DSP from that same pack to a panel of Blackberry Bliss card stock with SNAIL, then to a Wild Wasabi card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the flower image from the Petal Potpourri stamp set twice in Blackberry Bliss ink on a Whisper White panel and I punched them both out with the matching Flower Medallion Punch. I curled the petals slightly upward then adhered the flowers together and to the card front with SNAIL.
I cut two leaves with the Bouquet Bigz L Die from Wild Wasabi card stock and I tucked them under the flowers, adhering them with SNAIL to the card front. I stamped the flower center in Crushed Curry ink on a Whisper White panel, punched it out with the 7/8″ Scallop Circle Punch and adhered it to the flower center with SNAIL.
I pulled a strand of Crushed Curry Baker’s Twine through a Crushed Curry button from the Best Year Ever Accessory Pack (Sale-A-Bration item) and I tied a little bow. I adhered the button to the card front with a Glue Dot, then added three Pearl Basic Jewels next to the sentiment to finish the card front.
I adhered a strip of the Painted Blooms DSP to a strip of Wild Wasabi card stock, then to a Whisper White panel inside the card.
