I found this card idea on pg. 72, Papercrafts May 2006, cased card by Amber Crosley. I changed it up by texturing the colored piece. The butterflies are a die by Stampin Up as well as the plates and verses. The verses are from Whimiscal Words, SAB '10. The butterflies die is from Mini catalog that retired 5/31/10. It has 5 butterflies. I pop dotted the big one on inside of the card.
Well this card idea by Joanne Gelnar. When you see a great idea, just change it up based on what you have on hand. Well of course I used my favorite and very first SU set: Lovely as a Tree. Yep, it didn't retire this year either. I just love it.
The leaves in the background are stamped in Sahara Sand, Certainly Celery, Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Choc. Chip.
Cardstock: Old Olive, Very Vanilla, Natural Vanilla color.
Once again, inspired by Joanne Gelnar. Give credit where credit is due. What a fun project.
Using your round scallop punch, punch out 5. Punch a hole thru the middle. Now one at a time, wet each scallop circle, both sides and take out your frustrations on it by wadding it up. Actually one girl in class called it an old fashioned "Spit" ball. Now I surely don't remember making one of those as a young girl.
Open up each flower petal. Insert brad thru and thread each layer on. Bend brad back flat. Now re squish the flower and then open up to suit you. Let dry or with a little help from the heat gun we moved on. The white is textured with SU texture plates of your choice.
