Flower Card

The background on this is a page torn from an old encyclopedia that I found in a stack of free books at the library.

The flowers are made using an 1.75" and 1.5" scalloped punch. I used a Brocade Cuttlebug folder for some added texture on these. The centers are buttons stamped from SU's Button, Button stamp set and then punched using a Boho Blossom punch.

I printed the sentiment in my card making software and punched it with an 1.25" circle punch.  Added some inking to the edges for shading.

The grass is done with a SU scalloped border punch and I just cut some .25" strips to use for the stems.

The leaves were made with my Preserves cartridge.  They're a lemon that's cut at .714 x .615.  I sized it using Design Studio to fit.

This card was inspired by one I saw in an old issue of Cards Magazine.
