Green Floral Card


This card is made for the following challenges:
Crafty Hos' Challenge Blog: sketch #62
Picture Perfect Creations: colors-bashful blue, early espresso, pear pizzazz
Alphabet Challenge Blog: U is for Unused Stash-the flower stamp, the butterfly stickers and the embossing folder
The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4." I used some dark brown cardstock for the base. All the papers used are from my stash and are actually scraps. I was more than happy to use some of those up. :) The patterned green mat is cut at 3 1/2"x4" and the blue embossed mat is cut at 3 1/4"x3 3/4." I embossed it with the Birds and Swirls folder. I have had this embossing folder for well over a year and I have never used it! Can you believe that? I'm not sure why, because I really like it, so I'm glad to finally use it. The patterned blue paper is cut at 3 3/4"x2." The green paper on the bottom is 4"x1 1/2." I stamped the flower on some green cardstock in a dark brown ink. I cut around the edge of the flower, and pop-dotted it onto the front of the card. I have had this stamp for a while too, I don't even remember when I got it. I stamped both the outside and inside sentiments in the same brown ink. I added the butterfly stickers, which is another think I have had in my stash for a while. I can't even remember why I bought them, but I thought they fit quite well with this card.

  1. Your card is beautiful. I really love the embossing layer and the way you cut out the flower to sit on top. Oh and the butterfly is a perfect touch.
