It’s Thursday, and time to play at Pals Paper Arts! This week the Sketch Team’s Beth Beard has a beautiful sketch to inspire us.
I am in love with the layers in this sketch, especially the circles. And you know me, when I see a circle like this I feel compelled to use flowers. I really love the Botanical Builder Framelits. They impart so much depth and dimension. So I paired them up with one of the gorgeous floral papers found in the Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper collection, and Pool Party Polka Dots from the Schoolhouse Designer Series Paper collection. A quintet of spring colors guided my inspiration:
The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips
This finished card measures 4-1/4″ wide and 5-1/2″ tall when folded.
Pool Party and Blush Blossom flowers, paired with Rhinestones, make a beautiful focal point. They were popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhered to the side of the circle. Pear Pizzazz fronds were easily attached using the Fine Tip Glue Pen. The Botanical Builder Framelits, which were used to create the flowers and fronds, are one of my favorite collections from the Occasion Catalog.
Pool Party Glitter Ribbon and Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper add even more sparkle! I used Tear and Tape Adhesive to attach two pieces of ribbon, each one cut at a slant, to the glimmer paper.
Although I could have used a variety of sentiments on this card, I opted to use “I’m here for you…” from the Sale-A-Bration set, Pedal Pushers. I wanted to send a card to Jackie the Boxer’s friend, Amy, who was in an accident on her way to a dog show last week. I am hoping the flowers and sparkle cheer her up as she faces stressful days ahead.
I hope you enjoyed today’s card. It was made with love for someone who could a bit of sparkle in her life right now. As always, if you have any questions about the cards I create or the techniques I use, I am only an email away. Until next time…
