I stamped some of the flowers with Kitsch Flamingo as the second layer and others using Worn Lipstick, just for a bit of variety. As usual, I bulked stamped each layer using the negative of the die cut and popping blanks into it. And as usual, things didn't always line up perfectly but I went with it! I die cut two of the branches to fill my slimline card. The branch set has some little leaves but I went with the stamped ones from the Cherry Blossoms set. I only stamped two layers of the leaves - there's a third with some veins that I ignored this time. I wanted to emboss the branch with woodgrain but couldn't find my embossing folder - oh well...
Since today's card was my first with the cherry blossoms, I'm adding it to Darnell's March NBUS Challenge.
And now for a bonus card, this time using a cluster of the cherry blossoms:
I started with a Paper Studio A2 card base and used the same stamps and dies as for card one, except no branch. Slimline die cuts can easily be trimmed for use on other sized cards - gives more for the $$. The gingham is My Favorite Things Petite Gingham.
Remember - you have until 9pm Pacific Time today to add your birthday project using a die cut or embossing folder to our March Challenge gallery. Hope to see you there!! Thanks for visiting!!
