I had some fun playing with the Daydream Medallions stamp set and the coordinating Floral Frames Framelits to create today's card. I love this set of Framelits and can't wait to try a bigger version which will look terrific on larger projects and gifts.
For the background piece, I spritzed Summer Starfruit and Soft Suede ink onto Crumb Cake card stock (using Stampin' Write Markers and the Color Spritzer Tool) and sponged the edges with Soft Suede.
The embossed piece, in Cajun Craze, is cut using the Two Tags Die and then embossed using the new Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder from the Holiday Catalog. I love this embossed design. You'll be seeing it a lot from me, I'm sure.
The floral focal image uses the three smallest of the set of Framelits along with the appropriately sized stamp images. Each section of the flower is double layered, ends bent upward and is finished off with a Dahlia Adornment. Those Dahlia's are so cute and really trendy right now too.
For the sentiment, I combined two greetings from the Sweet Essentials stamp set to create my "hello, friend" greeting using a marker to ink the desired words.
