Playful Petals Make and Take


Card/Paper: Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, Almost Amethyst, So Saffron, Whisper White, Tea Party Designer Paper
Ink: Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, Almost Amethyst, So Saffron, Basic Grey
Stamps: Playful Petals, Birthday Cheer and Wishes
Other: 5/8" Certainly Celery Grosgrain ribbon, Pretty in Pink Taffeta ribbon, So Saffron brads, Silver Elastic Cord.
Card Size: 15cm x 10.5cm (approx 4" x 6")


This is the project that we made at our stamper's ten meeting on Monday evening.

All the flower parts were stamped onto the different coloured card using Basic Grey, and then different sections cut out to create the layers. Some of the design on each layer was coloured in with the matching marker, to give a two tone effect. The pieces were shaped before gluing together, and finishing off with a brad in the centre.

The flower is arranged onto a piece of the Tea Party designer paper, and matted onto Pretty in Pink card. The corners were punched with a 1/2" circle punch before matting. Wrapped the grosgrain ribbon around and then tied the taffeta on top. The greeting is stamped in Certainly Celery, and the three little yellow dots are 1/4" circles of So Saffron card shaped with an embossing tool.

The flower on the tag is made to match, with the base card stamped all over with the small flower from the set in Almost Amethyst. The tag is a petal fold envelope, and opens up at the back to a square of Whisper White matted onto Certainly Celery, and decorated with the little stamp. There is a small hole punched in the corner of the tag to thread the silver cord through, which is hidden on the inside by the message area, and the on the front by the flower.

Do you have a template for this petal fold envelope, or did you make this from scratch?
