Watercolor Flowers

Sorry I haven't posted!  I am working at Florida Gulf Coast University and fall semester started up this week, things have been busy and I have been exhausted afterwards!

I created these cards off of some cards that Andrea Walford made.  I had a lot of fun with the Watercolor Trio set.  Hurry to get your set from the Summer Mini!

The first card I actually messed up and made backwards!  I cut my card stock (bashful blue) in half long ways.  The Early Espresso is a 1/4 sheet.  I stamped the card left to right with the space on the right, Mistake!  Be sure to stamp right to left and leave your gap on the left.  When you fold the card, slide the Early Espresso in and tear so to expose your stamping.  Tie the ribbon around the torn edge and then tape down so to hide your ribbon.  Easy and beautiful!

This card is very easy to put together.  I layered with Sahara Sand, Bashful Blue, and Early Espresso.  Stamped my images in Craft White.  Stamped on Whisper White and punched it out with the Wide Oval Punch and attached with Demensionals.  I added a Rhinestone to take it up a notch.  Fun!

Using the same colors to layer as the previous card, I designed this card.  I used the Square Lattice Embossing Folder on the Bashful Blue.  I wrapped some Linen Thread around and added a couple Rhinestones for embellishment.
