Christmas Flowers


I made this for the My Favorite Things monthly celebration. It's a chance for all of us to post some of the cards we made with the stamps from the monthly release.



I used the wicked cool "Build a Bouquet" set for the flowers. I stamped the first layer on the card with Ruby Colorbox Pigment ink, then embossed them with clear EP. The second and top layer were done the same way with Magenta and Cranberry pigment ink, then cut out. The top 2 layers were attached with gold brads, then adhered with dimensionals.



I stamped the leaves and stems with old olive ink. They come from the It's Elemental set that was released a few months ago.



The added a mixed ribbon bow to the center to fill it in. I gotta admit I CASED this ribbon idea from 4Hounds on SCS - and one of the new MFT design team members.... I'm just amazed by the awesome creations she's been crankin' out!!! Anyways... Pam always has some cool looking ribbon on her cards - always perfectly placed - I just look at them and say WOW!



Thanks for looking and let me know what you think of this card... I think it may end up being my Christmas card for this year!
