Flower Fest

So sad to see Flower Fest retiring this year - it is such a versatile set and I haven't purchased it yet (just keep borrowing).  This card is a complete Case of the very talented Karen Barber.  It was done using Blushing Bride, Lucky Limeade and So Saffron. Each flower was stamped twice, with White Embossing Powder over Versa Mark.  It took 8 flowers per card and 10 leaves.  Each was shaded using the marker of the same color as the paper.  A 1 1/4" punch gets pretty close to the main flower while a 3/4" does a good job with the center of the flower.  Just clean them up and clip out the notches and you are all set.  So much easier than fussy cutting the whole thing. 

The base of Whisper White C/S was run through the Big Shot and the Dotted Swiss Embossing Folder.  A piece of Blushing Bride was layered onto the bottom half.  The 5 yard spool of SU ribbon will go a long way if I continue just using 4 1/4" per card.  The two oval punches take care of the sentiment.  So far I
sent these using Get Well, Birthday, And Thinking of You.  Two pearls complete the card.   A fun card that people seem to really enjoy receiving.  Thanks for stopping by.

It's a lovely card and how clever you are to use the circle punches to minimize the fussy cutting.
