My dear friend Janet Crossman sent me the most beautiful birthday card. I didn’t take a picture, but it has a laser cut floral border with larger flowers popped up over top – and it lights up! It’s just gorgeous.
Of course, I wanted to do something similar with Stampin’ Up! products. This doesn’t come close, by the way, but I like it. I didn’t at first, but my dear Rachel and Stephanie were here and gave me some ideas. Basically, we added the white strip and removed a flower. Easy!
I embossed the Fabulous Florets with white powder on the Bermuda Bay layer. Then I had the idea to die cut flowers – and I didn’t have time to “scissor cut!” So for the Pool Party flowers (with basic pearl jewels in the center; I colored them with a permanent marker), I used the Secret Garden stamps and framelits. The sentiment is from Lovely Romance, embossed with Pool Party powder on vellum, and die cut with Chalk Talk framelits. Done!
Gotta run!! I still need to pack food for two weeks. Have a wonderful day – and thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy!
