MMM 48 AND FMS 34

Hi cuties! With that title I have to admit; when I retired, I thought I was leaving the acronym world behind me. Now that I am making cards, I have started learning a whole NEW series of acronyms.  LOL yesterday I finally found out what CASE means.  Oh well, acronyms just make life easier, so its all good.

I tried a couple of new things on this card. Make My Monday’s challenge is for us to use white flowers as the focal point.  I wanted to use my StampinUp! Triple Treat Flower stamp, but using black ink didn’t give it the look I wanted, so I decided to emboss white on white and use two different white papers; one is a very light grey card stock and the other is a reflective white card stock.  Standard card stock was used for the center which is stamped with Versacolor ink.

The second thing I tried was the bow. I saw a tutorial somewhere that shows how to make small bows using a fork of all things! I really wanted a small bow for this card and I love how it turned out.

.

The DSP is from K & Company’s Brenda Walton Madeline Mat Pad.  The colors are so beautiful in this mat pad and the paper is textured which makes the colors somewhat muted.  Each panel is matted using the brown paper. Really Reasonable Ribbon was used for the ribbon and bow.

A Spellbinders Big Scalloped Circles LG die cut is underneath the white flower and a Recollections flourish finishes off the card.

THIS CARD QUALIFIES FOR THESE CHALLENGES:

Freshly Made Sketches 34

- please make the flowers the main focus of your projects - not just added as an embellishment.
