Guess what? I was one of the winners on the May Project Parade contest on the Verve Visual Blog. I'm so excited. Here's my card that I entered in the contest. What a great way to start off a Monday morning.
After I checked out the Verve blog, I hopped over to Julee's blog to check out her Mojo Monday sketch challenge.
What a great sketch. Any time I see a large circle in a sketch, I always think of a Dahlia flower. So that's what I made.
The directions for the dahlia fold can be found here. I used my 1 3/8" Circle Punch for the dahlia petals. It's a little time consuming folding all of the petals, but I think it makes such gorgeous flowers. It's definitely worth the time.
I used my new Fresh Cuts stamp set on the card.
For the medallion, I stamped the leaf print stamp on Groovy Guava cardstock with Groovy Guava ink. Then I stamped the 5 petal flower on top of it with Ruby Red ink. I stamped another 5 petal flower with Ruby Red ink, cut it out, added a black brad to the center, and adhered it on top of the other flower with a dimensional. The Ruby Red scalloped circle seemed to get lost on my card, so I added a Basic Black scalloped circle behind it. I offset the two scalloped circles so the Black scallops showed between each of the Ruby Red scallops.
The Fresh Cuts stamp set is a sneak peek from the upcoming Fall and Winter catalog and it's one of the specials for the month of June. You can earn this set free (plus a set of 15 Fresh Cut note cards and envelopes) for hosting a $400 workshop during the month of June. You can also purchase this stamp set and get the set of 15 Fresh Cut note cards and envelopes for only $5 more. Contact me to order yours today.
