Paper Players #85

Posted on

Good Monday morning to everyone. I hope that you had a nice weekend. Mine was good, just not long enough! I haven’t quite figured out how to make it longer but I’m working on it! Today’s post is for this weeks Paper Players. They asked you to make a Spring themed card…

I decided nothing says spring like a big flower. I also decided to keep my color palate to just two, Very Vanilla and Poppy Parade. The base of the card is Poppy Parade. I ran a piece of Very Vanilla through the Big Shot using the Texturz Plates Backgounds 1 Embossing Plates. I attached a piece of Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper to the bottom and used a piece of Very Vanilla 1/4″ Grosgrain Ribbon to hid the seam. The flower is made using the Build A Blossom Stamp Set and the Blossom Petals Builder Punch. I stamped Poppy Parade Card Stock with Poppy Parade Ink and punched each of the petals out. I used some glue dots to adhere them to 1″ circle underneath. There are two layers and in the middle I stamped Poppy Parade Ink on Very Vanilla and put some Basic Jewels Pearls on it. The greeting is from the Tagtastc (Host(ess)) Stamp Set and is punched out with the Scallop Oval Punch and mounted on Poppy Parade punched out with the Extra Large Oval Punch and put on some Stampin’ Dimensionals. I would say that the card has a very spring feel with the vibrant large red flower. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day!
