I think this Comfort Cafe Designer Series Paper looks beautiful with the Pool Party and Soft Suede card stock on this thank you card….if I do say so myself! The little flowers are made with the new 1 1/4" Scallop Circle Punch found on page 7 in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog. You have to put this punch on your next order!!
I intended to feature these cute little flowers in yesterday's post but some other card developed and didn't allow room for the flowers! But I love them on this card! Actually I have them pretty flattened out as I will be mailing this card (gasp!) but I will tell the recipient she can "foof them up" when she gets the card. However, I think the paper is so pretty that they look good even flattened out this way!
To make the flowers, just punch out three small scallops (or as many as you would like) for each flower. I spritzed mine with a fine spray mist of water, then stacked them three in a pile and stuck in the Gold Metallic Brad after poking a hole with the Paper-Piercing Tool using the Stampin' Pierce Mat. After you have them together, scrunch each layer up toward the center, even twisting each layer around a bit so they are offset. So easy! Let dry and apply to your project!
The greeting is from the Perfectly Penned stamp set on page 132 of the main Stampin' Up! Catalog.
