Happy Friday . . . it's time for another one of Beate's weekend sketches! I'm so glad she's "making" me stamp because I desperately need to catch up on my birthday card sending *wink*!
I immediately knew I would love this sketch when I saw it was square, so mine is a 5.50" square card with a chocolate chip base. I finally caved and got Pick A Petal after seeing so many wonderful samples using it. I chose the outline petal stamp and stamped 5 petals with chocolate chip craft ink on the cameo coral print from this fabulous new Linen Prints designer paper from Stampin' Up. After clear embossing it, I cut it out and adhered it over two other prints from this paper pack. A 1" circle punch of chocolate cardstock and a 3/4" circle punch of some more coordinating paper, all cut in half, make the center of this flower.
Then I decided to add some machine stitching with chocolate thread (big mistake . . . don't ask . . . an hour later I was done, LOL!), distressed the edges of the paper a little, added Vintage brass brads and the Designer Label punched birthday sentiment from the hostess set, Party Punch (it's mounted on dimensionals).
All supplies by Stampin' Up!
Be sure to check out Beate, Charmaine, Jenn & Lori's cards (or projects!), too . . . I always love seeing how different everyone's items turn out, using the same sketch! Join in the fun and try this great sketch over the long weekend, so you can catch up on your card sending, too. Have a wonderful weekend!
