The other day I was playing around with my card scraps (pieces that I had prepared for other cards but never used). Do you all have a bin of those like I do? It's fun to dig through and play with once in awhile. I found a black die-cut rose from the Rose Garden Thinlits and thought it looked great against this floral paper from my Blooms & Bliss Designer Paper pack. And because I had been playing around with matchbook cards recently, I had a piece of Basic Black cardstock that was already cut, scored and ready to turn into a card.
See? The front top flap tucks into the bottom front flap (like a matchbook).
Isn't this fun?!
Ta-da! I used one die-cut rose for the card. This leaf was a part that was removed from the one on the front of the card.
- Basic Black cardstock: 11" x 4-1/8" scored from one end at 1-3/8" and from the other end at 4-1/4" ...& 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" for die-cutting rose
- Blushing Bride cardstock: 4" x 3-7/8" for inside & 3-1/4" x 3/4" for the banner in the front
- Sweet Sugarplum cardstock: 4-1/4" x 5-1/2"
- Blooms & Bliss Designer Paper (Sweet Sugarplum floral design): 4" x 3-7/8"
I am a big fan of the new Metallic Enamel Shapes. I used 4 silver circles on this card - just the right amount of bling if I do say so myself. ;)
This card was made with the July Paper Pumpkin kit.
The talented Sara Hauer created her version of the above card with that same kit and sent it to me. (Thank you, Sara!) Isn't it fun!?
