Hi everyone! Happy Weekend, Happy Sunday, Happy Easter! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog and I’m stoked to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #108 – April Showers Bring May Flowers! We are being sponsored this month by the amazing CAS-ual Fridays Stamps so come on over and play with us for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate! I created a fun note card featuring fussy cut flowers and leaves from the Pretty Posies stamp set! I sure do love note cards as they are so versatile.
I stamped all the flowers and leaves on different patterned papers to coordinate with the colors in my handmade background. I created the background by swiping four distress oxide inks vertically and horizontally on watercolor paper, and spritzing with a little water. Once dry, I cut with a Dotted Ovals die. Then I placed all the flowers and leaves along the left side and stamped the sentiment.
I used some Glossy Accents on the centers of the flowers and put a few dots on the background (which is kind of hard to see in these photos). I left the layered panel on the inside blank to write a custom message.
