PCC#97 – Flowers, Lace & Chevron

By | June 12, 2014

Happy Thursday, it’d been a rather rainy week here in the ‘burgh, which seems to always happen when Pittsburgh hosts the Three Rivers Art Festival. Luckily the weekend weather forecast is sunny and 80, grilling, pool time and swaps for convention on my schedule!

Here is the sketch¬†for this weeks Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch #97. Each Wednesday a new sketch is given and the fun begins. I like to print out the sketch and look at it throughout the day – then poof – the magic happens. ūüôā

Rarely do I make a square card, so this took some brain power. I decided I wanted to use a piece of paper from the new “Park Lane” Designer series paper pack and a card was born.¬† The card is Old Olive and a ¬†5″x5″ square. The piece of Park Lane paper is backed by Daffodil Delight and glued to the card.¬†¬† Starting from left to right – the flower is stamped in Tangerine Tango and Daffodil Delight using the “Flower Patch” Photopolymer stamp set and cut out using the matching “Flower Flair” framelits – which happen to come in a bundle at a 15% savings! The heart is Old Olive using the Itty Bitty Accent Punch. All layers of the flower are popped by dimensionals. I took a ‘White tea lace paper doily, ¬†swiped the Daffodil Delight ink pad over it a few time to color it and used a piece of it as a focal point in the middle of the card. The label on the right is from the Apothecary Art stamp set using the matching Label Collection framelit, another bundle and 15% savings. Used the new Blendabilities (available to customers mid-summer) to color the label and the greeting is from the Flower Patch stamp set. To finish off the card, three Old Olive chevron’s from the Chevron border punch.
