Green Garden

Published by at 2 02 am under General Purpose Cards

Flourishes is sponsoring the sketch this week at CPS — what fun!!! And what a great sketch. It is a long, narrow sketch, and I made mine into a card to fit a regular business sized envelope. My card measures 9″ x 3 7/8″.


I used Fantasy Floral Garden by Flourishes. Just love that set packed full with all sorts of flowers and fun words in cool fonts!!! The two flowers I used here are my favorites in the set — just love these pretty little things!!! They are colored in with reinkers and a blender pen, as is the vine border. The main image is cut and embossed on a rectangle Nestability die by Spellbinders, and the black scalloped mat layer was also cut and embossedon a rectangle Nestability scallop die by Spellbinders. I added a little bow and large brad accent and I was done!!! The black paper is from the Prismatics line by Prism, and the green is Wild Wasabi textured by SU.

Flourishes is offering a special Combo Kit price right now. The Combo Kit will include this stamp set, Fantasy Floral Garden, a pad of 6 x 6 Infuse by Basic Grey, and 2 yards of yummy ribbon. You can create the moment your package arrives!!!!
