Simples Sunday and LIM (again!)
Well it's Sunday again - where do the weeks go? I have combined my 'Simples Sunday' card with the LIM challenge which, this week, is Handmade Flowers. My entry yesterday really were 'handmade' flowers but I feel like I'm cheating a bit today because these flowers were so easy to make using punches.
I stamped an image from the Flower Shop set three times, using Crisp Cantaloupe, and punched out with the Pansy Punch and the centres are from the Boho Blossoms punch in Whisper White and Crisp Cantaloupe. I shaped the flower parts individually with the end of my pricking tool using a firm, circular motion, glued them together and a Basic Pearl was added to the centres.
An aperture was cut in a piece of white cardstock using one of the Apothecary Accents Framelits, with a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock placed behind before matting onto a card blank. All that was needed to finish the card was the sentiment from Sassy Salutations stamped in Baked Brown Sugar.
