Floral Congrats Card

This week I found out my neighbor is getting married at the end of this month. That meant I needed to make him a card quickly. To create this Floral Congrats Card I used the color challenge at Create with Connie & Mary for my inspiration. Color challenges are my favorite but I must admit that I find a three color challenge VERY challenging. The colors are:
  • Coastal Cabana
  • Hello Honey
  • Baked Brown Sugar
To start I selected my patterned paper from the Moonlight paper stack and then used my Big Shot with the Top Note Die. At this point I sat at my desk for at least thirty minutes trying to figure out my layout. Finally, I walked away. When I came back I rotated my card and things started to come together. I was really happy I ordered the new Hey You sentiment stamp set (134519), it worked perfectly for this card. The flowers were stamped using Baked Brown Sugar ink onto Coastal Cabana cardstock using the Flower Shop stamp set and then punched using the Pansy Punch. The final step was creating the flower centers using the Bordering Blooms stamp set, the retired itty bitty scallop circle punch and of course a pearl in the center. Although I struggled with this card I think it turned out nicely. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

My Floral Congrats Card is entered into the following challenges:


  1. What a pretty card! I really like the way the Baked Brown Sugar looks stamped on the Coastal Cabana! Your flower centers are perfect! Thanks for playing the Saturday challenge at Create with Connie and Mary!

  2. Wonderful card! I love your Coastal Cabana flowers! Thanks so much for joining the Saturday Summer Challenge at Create with Connie and Mary!

  3. I love those flower centres! And even more, I love a wedding card without a cake on it (since I seem to be unable to make one that way in particular!)
