If you remember from yesterday’s post, I was trying to create card that I could picture in my mind but just could not translate onto paper. Although the card turned out okay, it just wasn’t what I had been planning.
Today’s card is my second attempt. And it is definitely more what I had planned and didn’t take long at all to stamp probably because I wasn’t so frustrated. I changed a couple of things – first, I decided to use my favourite Stampin’ Up! colour – Rose Red because it never lets me down and second I decided to use the Framed Tulip embossing folder so that I was working with less surface for stamping. And both of these changes really helped me create.
After stamping the greeting, I created flowers with the Boho Blossom punch. Then, I added a Vintage Trinket button brad to the center of each flower and topped the brad with a Basic Pearl. I love these little trinkets and think they look great topped with the pearl. Have you ordered your trinkets yet?
