Big Flower - Little Card


Ingredients:

Card/Paper: Whisper White, Apricot Appeal, Certainly Celery, Certainly Celery designer paper
Ink: Lavender Lace marker, Versamark ink pad
Stamps: Sincere Salutations
Other: Pretties Kit flower, Certainly Celery Brads, Stampin' Pastels, clear embossing pow
Card Size: 9.5 cm x 9.5 cm

Method:

This card is for a colour challenge on In Love With Stamping.

I coloured one of the large flowers from the kit with Lavender Lace pastel, and a sponge dauber - very quick and easy, and gives a slightly velvety look to the petals. For the centre of the flower I punched a 1" circle from Certainly Celery card, and another from Apricot Appeal. Randomly punched 1/16" holes in the apricot circle. I then pressed it into the surface of a Versamark ink pad, and embossed with clear embossing powder. Did this twice to make the embossing a bit thicker. Glued the two circles together, and then into the centre of the flower. Used the corner rounder with the guard taken off to punch a scalloped edge on the apricot card. Used the Stampamajig to postition the wording on the designer paper. Finished off with three brads. All mounted onto a white card base.

This looks just fabulous! It's my favourite colour combination - lilac/mauve with yellow and green, and you've used the perfect shades. :)
I think it's about time I started "scalloping" ;) and I haven't seen anywhere a corner rounder that lets you take the guard off. Except for the SU ones. How much is that corner rounder? Would you ship one to Romania? :)
