NMBS New Catty Swap - Part 1

The swaps are now postal coming back to me, so I think it is safe to post my cards that I designed for this swap.

FIFTH AVENUE FLORAL

I love these colors together. I stamped the large flower twice on Whisper White with Basic Black ink. Using the paper snips, cut out one full flower image and flat mount that onto the DSP layer. Cut out the second image, and cut away the outer petals. I used dimensional adhesive to adhere this over the first image.















Stamps: Fifth Avenue Floral, Holidays & Wishes
Paper: Basic Black, Baja Breeze, Urban Oasis DSP, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black, Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze
Access: Black Brads, Baja Breeze Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, Dimensional Adhesive
Tools: Paper Snips, Horizontal Punch, 1/16" Hole Punch

GARDEN GREETINGS

This is a fun new set and great color combination. I cut out each flower image and flat mounted it onto the Whisper White layer. I used the ribbon knots for the center of each flower.
To make the ribbon centers: take a 5" piece of ribbon, tie a knot in the center of the ribbon. Punch a hole in the center of your cut out flower and thread both ends through the hole, once the knot is in the center, fold back the ends to form leaves. I used glue dots to secure the flower to my card.

Paper: Sage Shadow, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Pink Pirouette
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Sage Shadow
Access: Sage Shadow Grosgrain Ribbon
Tools: Paper Snips, Paper Piercing Tool & Mat Set, 1/8" Hole Punch
