A Statement Flower

This flower was die cut from cardstock, dry embossed, inked with Distress Ink and sprayed with Glimmer Mist.

Textured Butterfly Die Cuts

Like the textured hearts used on a previous card, I used textured butterflies on this one. This die was also from Stampin' Up. Wendy B. to the rescue again!

Inside Out

Though this sentiment was probably intended for the inside of a card, I wanted to incorporate this label die cut and the sentiment fit it perfectly. Subsequently, I stamped,"Thinking of You" on the inside of the card, since I didn't want to repeat an Easter one.

Patterned Pets

Rather than stamp these rabbits in shades of brown, I chose colours of ink similar to those found in the patterned paper. Cutie patootie!

Textured Enamel Dots

Enamel dots have come in a variety of colours in the last year, but I recently got some textured ones that are perfect centres for flowers.  Thanks to Linda G.!

Velvet Ribbon

Not only is this scalloped velvet ribbon "yummy" on its own, but it works well layered with a wider ribbon, hiding the pleating stitches.  Both were adhered with double sided tape.

A Perfect Match

It's also a good idea to purchase ribbon from the same company that you buy the patterned paper. Usually they are identical in colour and make card design so much easier.  These products are from Stampin' Up.

Splitting Dry Embossed Borders

Though this dry embossed border was too narrow for the card front, I cut in in half, allowing the ends to reach the sides of the card front. The space between the two pieces of brown paper are hidden underneath the frame supporting the stamped rabbit image.

Full Flower Centres

I used Glossy Accents to safely secure a good amount of beads to create full and textured flower centres.
