Simple card with punched flowers

Today my granddaughter saw this card and said I should post it to the blog so here it is.

It was a very simple card to make ..... I used Soft Suede for the card base then cut a mat of Early Expresso. The next layer was Sahara Sand which I embossed  with a diamond pattern.

I then used the 5 petal punch and punched out 6 flowers from a piece of Sahara Sand and then I sponged the edges with Early Expresso. I stamped the center with a star burst stamp I had and then I inked up the end of a new unsharpened pencil and stamped the centers. I then curled the edges of all the petals before gluing them together. The little flower was punched using the SU punch that has 3 different blossoms and then I did the same as above to it.

The brown strip is a piece of satin ribbon but you could just use a strip of Early Expresso for it. I glued the flowers to the card then punched a piece of Sahara Sand using the Fat Oval and stamped the saying with Early Expresso and used pop dots to raise it up a little.

This card looks like I spent more time than I really did. I think it might have taken all of 15 minutes to complete.

Well that is it for today. Post a comment and let me know what you think .... or better yet why don't you JOIN me so you can follow along with what I am doing.

  2. This card is lovely how could you not post a picture... I love the colours and the flowers are so pretty..
    Thankyou for my messages, I do feel the same at times... but then I am kind of use to talking to myself...

  3. Great Card!! I'm going to try your punch flower technique!

  4. I love this card but feel stupid with my questions. What is SU? Where do I get a diamond pattern like the one on your card. I have a sizzix. Your work is wonderful.

  5. Kathy NEVER feel stupid when asking a question.
    SU is short for Stamping Up products. I LOVE their card stock because of the weight for card bases.
    The embossing folder is by Quickutz.

    Thankyou so much for your complement.


Thank you so much for taking a few moments to leave comment. I really appreciate it and look forward to them.
