Clean and Simple have a new sketch this week. I decided to vary the sketch slightly as the flower I wanted to use was a little bit too big to leave the square in the middle.
Stamps: Happy Moments (retired)
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, Bella Rose DSP(retired
Accessories: Blossom Punch, Owl Punch (for small dots and circles in the centre of the flower), Devine Swirl embossing folder, Swiss Dot embossing folder
I started with a base card made from Basic Black cardstock and added a layer of Swiss Dot embossed Whisper White cardstock. I then punched out series of small dots using the Owl Punch. I adhered the dots around the edge of the embossed cardstock. With a square piece of Bella Rose DSP, I adhered a piece of Basic Black cardstock behind it and then adhered it to the base card. Next, I punched two flowers with the Blossom Punch and two circle using the Owl Punch. With the black blossom I cut out all the petals so that I could adhere them behind the white blossom. I embossed the flower using the Devine Swirl Embossing folder. I added the two circles to the centre of the card and then I cut the petal down to the centre circles. I then used the Bone Folder to shape the petals. I adhered the flower to the base card using two dimensional to give it a little extra height. To finish off the card i added the birthday sentiment from the Happy Moments stampset.
