Hello and thank you for visiting my blog today.
Here is the second card using the dotty strips as shown yesterday. The remaining strips from the previous card, as well as some additional ones stamped in Garden Green, Pretty Peacock, Real Red and Balmy Blue, were used to punch out flowers using the Small Blooms Punch. I had already made a card base in Whisper White and cut the card front down to a width of 2 7/8”. The DSP is from Birthday Bonanza, cut to 2 7/8” x 5 13/16” for the front section and 1 ¼“ x 5 13/16” for the right hand side interior section of the card. I adhered the DSP to the card along with the punched flowers hanging over the edge of the card front, as shown.
For the front image I used a doily, snipping off the outer edge. The doily was originally Old Olive in colour, but I wanted a stronger colour, so inked over the Old Olive side in Real Red, which gives a deeper colour tone than if it were stamped on white. The doily was then adhered to the card. Next, I used the Vibrant Vases stamp set and stamped the vase in Pretty Peacock with the co-ordinating leafy image stamped on top in Mememto Tuxedo Black. Unfortunately, I don’t have the vase punch as yet, so I fussy cut around the vase. The single flower is from the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set, the leafy image stamped in Garden Green and the small flower stamped in Daffodil Delight. I fussy cut this from the larger stamped image and adhered to the rear of the vase, then placing them on Stampin’ Dimensionals. This image was stuck on top of the doily. The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set, stamped in Pretty Peacock ink onto Whisper White cardstock and backed with a mat using Pretty Peacock cardstock. Both pieces were cut into a side banner before being adhered together and attached to the card.
I’m happy to have made good use of the scrappy cut off strips which are normally thrown away!
