5 Petals

Have you noticed a bit of a theme with my cards lately?  I'm loving flowers with leaves!

I whipped up these cards on Monday - okay, I wish I had just whipped them up - it took me all day to come up with these designs (my mojo is returning - but slowly (lol)).

I wanted to create four cards using a similar style.  What do you think?

The flowers have been made using the 5-petal flower punch.  I punched 4 flowers for each card and rubbed the top of each flower roughly with my stylus.  

Each of the cards have been made on very vanilla and riding hood red card stock.  For this first card I ran the  top note shaped card stock through the polka dot embossing folder.   

I used the top note die and the manhattan flower embossing folder on very vanilla card stock for this card.

The next two cards use the scallop circle die with the same embossing folders.

I cut the base of this card down a little to make it more square.

I've also used the colour spritzer tool and spritzed black ink onto some of the flowers.  What do you think of the striped grosgrain ribbon?  I really like it - it's old olive, so of course I like it (lol).  I also like the large 3.2cm width - it adds a great dimension to the cards.

If you have any questions about how these cards were assembled, please don't hesitate to email me with your questions.
