Birthday Flowers...back in time

I haven't made a card for a few days because I'm working on something different that will hopefully keep me organized :O) That being said, I thought I would share one of my cards that I never got around to uploading on my blog.

It's actually one of Lauren Meader's sketches...mytimess26. Thinking back, there was a LOT of cutting on this card :O) I stamped the watering can on kiwi DSP and cut it out. I stamped all of the flowers on the panel and stamped some extras on a separate piece of cardstock and cut them out. I used dimensionals (cut in half or quartered) to make random flowers pop, and added glitter to the centers of the larger flowers.

I used the SU! Word Window Punch to create the large circle flowers on the top left of the main panel. I basically punched 9 strips for each flower, punched a small hole in each end of the strips, added a brad to the first hole in each and then curled the papers to push the brad through the second hole of each.

I have a few ideas to make these flowers pop even more if I ever use this technique in the future. With any luck, I'll finally put a mini-tutorial together on how I made these and show variations to achieve different looks.


Thanks for stopping by to check out the card I made two months ago :O) LOL Hope you find some inspiration from it!
Supplies are listed in my SCS gallery.

Be sure to stop by on Friday for a sneak peek to the My Time To Create Challenge for Saturday!!! This week is an inspiration challenge!!


Hope you're having a great week so far :)
