"Hello" Flower Card

"Hello"
That is the title of the card I made today. Yesterday, I made the card inspired from Heartfelt Creations and today I designed my own using the same card style from my Cricut serenade cartridge. I just love the swirl of it! These are more stamps that I broke out to use from Heartfelt Creations....I'm telling you they are so beautiful in real life. For this card, I decided to use another color that I rarely use...purple. The gingham cardstock is from Martha Stewart that I've had like years....I used two different punches...one is from Martha Stewart and the other is an old Fiskars punch. I also used Storybook cartridge and Cuttlebug-flower embosser, it came with the cuttlebug so I don't actually no the name of it? The final touches were pearls and lime green ribbon. I love this card even more than yesterday's! lol This card is slightly bigger...
6.5 x4.25, I think i like that size a little bit more....
Here is the side view...I tend to use lots of pop dots...
A close-up....my tip...I always color the stamped image underneath too and I also add diamond glaze to the top layer with foam dots....I think it makes it a bit stronger and shiner! :) My choice of coloring pencils are Prismacolor-Premier...an investment...but well worth it!
Well, hope you enjoyed this card too! Thanks for stopping by!
