This simple and pretty card gave me a chance to try out some new Stampin' Up! products along with one of my current favorite patterned papers - Howlstooth & Scaringbone Designer Series Paper. Now who would've thought with a name like that you could produce such lovely flowers?!
The real inspiration for this card started with the new Mixed Medley Hostess Stamp Set featured in the Holiday Catalog. The set covers numerous occasions with a mix and match quality that will make it super versatile.
The stamp set also coordinates with the 3/4" Circle Punch and the new (smaller) 1-1/4" Scallop Circle Punch - perfect for layering with the larger scallop circles and a welcome addition to the punch offerings.
Add "petals" to any scallop circle by snipping in-between the scallops, as done on the gray polka-dot flower. The Blossom Punch creates beautifully edged flower blossoms as do the Floral Frames Framelits (love all the different sizes and shapes from this set of dies!).
The background detail, from the Creative Elements stamp set, was clear embossed directly on Crumb Cake card stock, providing a pretty backdrop for added interest and texture, without stealing attention away from the main elements.
Happy Friday - enjoy your weekend!
