Petite Petals for CYCI #129

One of the things (among so many) that I like about cardmaking challenges is not really knowing exactly what the end result will be until I actually finish the card.  My card for the Can You Case It color challenge was one of those cards.  I was thinking about so many possibilities for this color combo…


Once again, I reached for a flower stamp set….

The card base is Sahara Sand.  I then cut another piece of Sahara Sand 1/8″ smaller and adhered a 2″ piece of DSP from the Moroccan Designer Series Paper Pack.  The blue trim is Dapper Denim cardstock. I popped this panel on the card base with dimensionals.

The bouquet of flowers are from the Petite Petals stamp set.  They are stamped in Basic Black and colored with Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight ink using a blender pen.  I punched them out with the Petite Petals punch which made making so many a breeze.  I cut a circle from a retired circle punch and used mini glue dots to adhere the flowers. Then just popped the circle on the card with a dimensional.  The two loose flowers were also popped up with dimensionals.  The sentiment is from the Tin of Cards stamp set stamped in Dapper Denim ink.

The inside sentiment is from the Bunch of Blooms stamp set and is stamped in Dapper Denim.

Just a little matching DSP and cardstock on the envelope flap completes the card.

I know that the Petite Petals stamp set has been around for quite some time now, but love how new DSP can breathe some freshness into it!  Please let me know what you think of this little update…..

Thanks for looking in today and be sure to stop back again.

Take care,
