Floral Cards

These were made for a couple of challenges, but since I made several cards at one time, not at home, and was not where I could post them then, I forgot which ones they were for. NOTE: Keep post-it notes on hand to document the names of challenges!!

I wanted only a little bit of the black showing under the main panel as if it was a shadow, so I took 2 black scalloped Nesties, pieced them, then taped them together to give it that look without looking like a completely different panel. The top piece (white) was embossed, raised on foam adhesive and placed on the Baja Breeze piece.

Stamps: Inspired by Nature (SU)
Paper: Basic Grey Two Scoops, Baja Breeze, Basic Black, White
Ink: Ruby Red
Other: Rhinestones (Mike's), Square and Scalloped Square Nesties, foam adhesive

This one was, also, for a challenge, but didn't get posted as such. I used More Mustard and Kraft to bring out the colors in the patterned piece. This stamp set is so versatile and a must-have. I stamped the flower in black on More Mustard and cut out. Three Kraft leaves were attached to the back of the flower and raised on foam adhesive. Rhinestones were placed in the center of the flower and the edge of the Label 1 piece. A piece of Basic Grey golden patterned paper was embossed with the Dotted Swiss folder.

Stamps: Beautiful You (Verve)
Paper: Kraft, More Mustard, Basic Grey Two Scoops
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Other: Labels 1 Nestie, Very Vanilla Grosgrain, Studio 18 Rhinestones, Dotted Swiss EF, MS Leaf and Edge punches, foam adhesive
