Lotus Blossom

CCMC342Oh my do we ever have a GREAT color challenge for you on Create with Connie and Mary this week – Hello Honey, Sahara Sand, Basic Black.

I have to admit…I LOVE my card.  I actually used this for a mnt at two stamping meetings in January and it was a hit there too!  I think this would make such a great card for pretty much ANY occasion and it gave everyone the opportunity to use the new Lotus Blossom SAB set!  I do recommend practicing with it a little before working on your piece!

Here’s the details –

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, run through Spring Flowers
  • Sweet Dreams dsp – 1 1/4 x 3 5/8, add to bottom of panel
  • Hello Honey 5/8 Quilted Cotton Ribbon – Wrap around panel.
  • Add panel to card front using dimensionals
  • Whisper White 2 x 4, punch top using Ornate Tag topper.
  • Stamp flower: Step 1 Hello Honey, Step 2 Hello Honey stamped off, Step 3 So Saffron stamped off.  Stamp Stem: Step 1 Sahara Sand, Step 2 Sahara Sand stamped off.  Stamp greeting using Memento Black
  • Basic Black Chevron Ribbon – fold piece and staple to top of tag.  Add tag using dimensionals.
  • Add some Basic Rhinestones to finish off
