More Mixed Bouquets flowers........

The Addicted Ladies will tell you, I LOVE cutting out Flowers.......Certainly had some to cut out for this card!

I found this card layout over at the Lovely Dawns Blog, she does beautiful cards and tons of video tutorials....Pop over there and have a look....

The base cardstock is Pink Passion, 11 x 4 1/4, scored at 5 1/2. After scoring and folding, I cut off 2" off the front bottom, found the centre and used the cutter to cut the triangle. I then cuttlebugged this part.

The card is whisper white 28cm x 14cm folded and then a little bit cut off. I did this by laying the whisper white under the triangle flap and seeing how the triangle flap layed over the front card flat, then marked it so I could just see a fraction of the Pink Passion cardstock all around.

The triangle flap is held down by cutting a slit in the front card, about 3cm wide, you tuck the bottom of the triangle in the slit and this holds the front of the card shut......



I stamped 6 flowers in Pixie Pink and 3 flowers in Pink Passion and cut them out. I layered them up and added a rhinestone SU Brad in the centre. I ran my fingers under each petal to curl them.

I added a Terrific Tag from the Level 1 Hostess Set.


The front of the card was decorated using the other parts of the Mixed Bouquet Stamp Set.....


This shows lifting the front flap up and opening the front of the card.



This is a side view of the triangle part of the card.

Hope you have a good day, We are off to Monkey World to see the Chimps today. I'm taking a couple of little Monkeys with me:-)

Thanks for looking,
Jenny:-)xx
