I am doing another double Challenge. Today I have combined the sketch from the girls at Double Dutch and the theme Just Add a Flower from Just Add Ink. I am also using these challenges to help me come up with a Thank You card for my sister-in-law, Anita. My husband visited his family in the Netherlands and he brought back some stamping things that both his sister and mother gave me. I am so lucky :). I have never used Magnolia stamps before. I started with a base card made from Basic Black cardstock. I then added a layer of Cherry Cobbler cardstock, followed by 4 pieces of Bella Rose DSP (retired). I then trimmed and embossed a piece of Whisper White cardstock, using the Swiss Dot embossing folder. I adhered the embossed cardstock to the base card. I then used by Scissor Circle Plus to cut out the black circle. I slightly offset the Scissor Circle Plus when cutting the inner circle, so that I would have a slightly thicker border for the bottom of the circle. I adhered the Basic Black circle to base card. Using my Stampin Up marker pens and my blender pens, I started to colour in the Magnolia image that Anita had given me. Once coloured, I then trimmed the image and adhered it to the base card at the bottom of the circle. I then punched out 6 flowers using the Boho Flower Punch. 3 in Old Olive and 3 in Cherry Cobbler. I then punched out 3 Cherry Cobbler circles, which I torn and wound to make three roses. I adhered the roses to the punched out Old Olive Boho Flowers and added them to the base card. Next I added Star Confetti to the centre of the embossed circle. Next, I added 3 pearls to the centre of the Cherry Cobbler Boho Flowers and then snipped the flower to form petals, that I slightly curled. To finish off the card, I stamped the Thank You sentiment from the Afterthoughts stamp set. I punched out the sentiment using the Decorative Label punch. I then punched out a Basic Black Decorative Label that I cut in half and added to the back of the sentiment. I adhered the sentiment with foam pads.
