Flourishing Phrases with Falling Petals


For the embossing on this card I have used the Falling Petals Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#142761).


The cardstock is Very Vanilla (#106550) and Peekaboo Peach (#141422). After embossing the card front I gently sponged the raised petals with Peekaboo Peach ink (#141398). The flower is from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set (#c141538, #w141531) and also stamped with Peekaboo Peach ink. The scalloped circles were cut using the Layering Circles Framelits (#141705). I added a Falling In Love Embellishment (#142791) to the flower. Happy Birthday is from the Balloon Celebration stamp set (#p140675). This was cut with a framelit from the Project Life Cards & Labels (#135707). You might be thinking that this looks shorter than the framelit in this set. Well yes it is. To make it shorter, firstly place the framelit closer to the "H", so there will be more space at the end. Then after cutting, place the framelit the same distance from the "y" and recut, as shown below.


The ribbon is the 3/8" Ruched Ribbon in Peekaboo Peach (#141427). When I attach ribbon to a card I put tape on the card rather than the ribbon. I find this easier for me. Then when possible, tuck it under the card front so ther are no raw edges showing on the card. The sentiment was then attached over the ribbon with Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). The circles were also attached with Dimensionals.

Hopefully today will see the end of this heatwave. Keep cool everyone.

Over the next few weeks I won't be able to do a daily blog, but will hopefully do at least 2 a week.

Till next time,

Happy Stamping!
