Floral No Stamping

This card has no stamping. I used several punches and dies in creating the flowers and cardstock pieces.


I participate in a swap every few months with a few ladies. One person chooses a card idea to CASE and we all create a card that goes along with the idea. I chose to use patterned paper and cardstock from Hobby Lobby for the weaving pattern and flowers. I used three different punches to create the flower, then embossing it with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder. That gave it needed texture. The leaves were die cut with a Spellbinders die. I added a bit of ink and texture with an SU embossing folder. Then I thought it needed more, so I cut vellum leaves using the same die and MFT vellum cardstock. The Hi was a freebie from The Stamps of Life and it worked perfectly for the greeting. I didn’t like this on the plain white cardbase so used a gray from Stampin Up embossed with the Subtle folder.

When we decided on the card to CASE, the other ladies thought it would be easy to follow and not a lot of work. This took quite a few steps to create and turned out to more of a challenge than I thought. Now that I have made one, the others will be easier to create.

This card will be entered in the Just Us Girls No Stamping challenge.
