Fall has definitely arrived in my neck of the woods, and I love it. The crisp air, fresh local apples (especially Honeycrisp), vibrant leaves, and cozy fleece sweaters. But it is sad to see the summer flowers fading away. (Although the giant marigolds in our garden are still hanging in there. That reminds me that I still have a few last garden pictures to share.) So before I get immersed in the jewel tones and leaf-themed stamps of autumn, I thought I'd share a fun flowery card.
Supplies (all Stampin' Up! uness otherwise noted):
Stamps: Inside & Out: Birthday (Papertrey Ink)
Paper: Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip card stock, silver glimmer paper, 6" x 6" Wood Designer Cardstock paper (My Mind's Eye)
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Blossom Builders die cuts, large pearls, Designer Naturals Buttons, linen thread, Beautiful Wings Embosslits die, flower pot die (unknown), Corner Chomper (We R Memory Keepers), Glue Dots, Dimensionals
The Blossom Builders die cuts, which Stampin' Up! sold several years ago, were another thing I re-discovered while sorting through my craft supplies for the yard sale. I love the combination of colors and patterns, and they also came with banner pieces and pink rhinestones. I picked out a few flowers and arranged them with a die-cut flower pot (also from my stash), using rhinestones, a pearl and a button for the flower centers.
For the background, I adhered a piece of wood-patterned paper to the bottom third of a Baja Breeze card stock base. I wanted it to look like the flower pot was sitting on a table, and I think this works. I add a banner stamped with a sentiment and a small die-cut butterfly to finish the card.
Thanks for stopping by!
