Friends and Flowers

CCMC396Do you ever start out with one idea in mind then take a bit of a detour?  Yep..that’s what happened to me this week for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge – a cool color challenge:  Hello Honey, Cajun Craze and Basic Black.

Just for the record…this card started out to be a masculine card.  See what I mean…I sort of took a detour.  I do have to say though…it was a fun trip!  LOL!!!

Here’s the details…

  • Hello Honey – 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 4 1/4, stamp greeting using Basic Black and Cajun Craze add using dimensionals
  • Cajun Craze print (Botanical Gardens dsp) – 3/4 x 3 3/4, cut on slant add
  • Hello Honey – 1/4 x 4, cut on slant and add
  • Basic Black print (Botanical Gardens dsp) – 3/4 x 3 1/4, cut on slant and add
  • Stamp flower in both Hello Honey and Cajun Craze, cut out and add to card front
  • Cut out little black piece from Basic Black using Botanical Builders framelits (you can also stamp the crosshatch from the Friends and Flower set if you don’t have this set of framelits), add to center of flower
  • Add some Basic Rhinestones to finish off.

  1. Beautiful card… the colours really stand out against the white and I like the mix of colours in the stamped sentiment. 🙂

  2. Love the CAS layering and the cute flowers – a nice two-tone sentiment too! Well, it might not be a masculine card Mary but it’s lovely all the same!

  3. Those skinny banners are a nice change of pace! Still could be a guy card if you switched out the flowers – nice that it could go either way!

  4. As I’ve said before, Mary, you are the queen of taking a few strips of paper and putting them together in fabulous ways! I marvel at it every time!!!
