Every month as I start working on cards for my monthly card class and stamp club, I remember why I love doing this. It is always fun to create a card of a scrapbook page based on what I see, but for me, it gets even more exciting when I think about what I can share with others and how excited they will be to try it out themselves. I think it challenges me to come up with something that is not only pretty but really fun to make.
Well, today’s card is one that I was soooo excited to try out and I loved it so much that I’m using it for some of my thank you cards this month as well as teaching it in my Cute & Classic cards class tonight and my stamp club next week!
The card is inspired by a card created by my friend Julie Gunhus who was inspired by a card on the Stampin’ Up Incentive Trip cruise. I’ve never seen the original and I changed up her version for mine, so if you know who made the original, tell them that I think they are brilliant!
I made mine a skinnier size so that the proportions looked right to me, so the end result is a card that is 3-1/2” x 5-1/2”.
I used the new Itty Bitty Accent punches for the smaller flower to go with my Petite Petal flower. Seriously, when the Petite Petals stamp & punch came out earlier this year I thought it was the smallest flower I would need… but boy do I love the new itty bitty punch pack!
This card is so quick and simple to make and just looks gorgeous, don’t you think? My burlap is just a 1-1/2” piece that I adhered my twine and flowers to the front with glue dots.
