These two cards were part of the cards Patty Bennett and I made earlier this week. Make sure you check out her cards. We took inspiration from Martin’s Mayhem blog. We were talking about how hard it is to do a one layer card. While Martin’s is one layer, we decided to add 2 layers. I also changed the colors I used. It took three stamp sets to make this awesome card, Beautiful Bouquet for the flowers, Varied Vases for the leaves, & Eastern Beauty for the circle or wreath. The wreath was inked up in Sahara Sand and stamped off once then onto our card front.
For this card I used these colors:
My card base is Thick Whisper White cut at 4 /14″ x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″. The Melon Mambo layer is 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″, and the last layer is 3 3/4″ x 5″ Whisper White cardstock.
I added a double Old Olive Linen Thread bow, and some Glitter Enamel Dots. There really isn’t any trick to getting the flowers on the wreath. I started with the largest flower and went from there. The sentiment is in the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set.
For this version I used these colors:
I changed the large & small flowers this time, all in the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp set. Added the Double Old Olive Linen Thread. Finished off with more of those Glitter Enamel Dots. Same measurements as above, except I used a Calypso Coral layer instead of Melon Mambo. I like the way the Calypso Coral & Melon Mambo layers make my card “pop”.
Fun Fact: No Big Shot or Dimensionals were used in the making of these cards.
I will be sharing all these cards & the basket this week and next.
Thanks Martin for the inspiration on today’s card.
