I went through a period of obsessive-compulsive-paper-flower-buying about 18 months ago. I love paper flowers, but I feel like I hardly ever use them! Well, I got out a bunch of my flower bags and selected some. The first few that came out of the bag were turquoise and orange. I thought, “Why not?”.
The frame is cut out using Spellbinders Labels and then dry embossed with a Tim Holtz brick pattern. When I first created the card, I used orange stripes on the background. Didn’t work. Then I tried a turquoise polka dot that I stamped off first. The difference between that and the orange was amazing. Sometimes you just have to try out a couple of options to see what looks best! The dots stamp is actually a new one from Stampin’ Up! this year – they are “distressed dots”, so they don’t stamp completely solid – I like it a lot!!
Anyway, if you have a bunch of flowers laying around, try it out! Note: The flowers in my supply list below aren’t the exact flowers I used in this card.
Enjoy and have a great week!
