Stampin' Up Botanical Builder Flower Fair Card II

I'm sure missing the sun.  It's been cloudy way too long and it looks like we won't see any sun until this Saturday.  We are supposed to have thunder storms tonight.  The temp's are above average so I guess that is a bonus!

As promised from my blog post yesterday, here is the second card that I designed using the piece of embossed Night of Navy Cardstock that my good friend and fellow Stampin' Up Demonstrator, Dawn, sent to me in a card:






































My card base is Stampin' Up's Whisper White Cardstock cut at 8-1/2" x 4-1/4" scored and folded at 5-1/2".

I cut piece of SU Calypso Coral Cardstock at 2-1/4" x 4-1/4" for a mat for the leftover piece of embossed Night of Navy cardstock, 2" x 4", that Dawn sent me in a card.  I tied a piece of SU 1/4" Calypso Coral Ribbon (Retired) around the Night of Navy piece and tied it into a bow.  I adhered the two pieces together and to my card base using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.











Using SU's Flower Fair Framelits Dies, I die cut the 'spoke' flower from SU's Calypso Coral Designers Series Paper and a flower center from SU's Calypso Coral Cardstock.  I bent some of the smaller spokes in the flower up to give it some dimension.  I adhered the flower center to the flower and to my card using Stampin' Dimensionals.





























Using SU's Botanical Builder Framelits Dies, I die-cut the long leaf stem with SU's Old Olive Cardstock and fussy cut it out as shown in the picture above.  I adhered it to my card base with Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.






















Using SU's Flower Fair Framelits Dies, I die-cut the largest flower from SU's Calypso Coral Designer Series Cardstock and the second largest flower from SU's Calypso Coral Cardstock.  

I stamped Hello from SU's Talented Trio Stamp Set in the center of the second flower using SU's Night of Navy Ink.

I adhered the two flowers together and to my card base using Stampin' Dimensionals.






































I adhered sequins from SU's Metallics Sequin Assortment to my flower centers.

Thanks again Dawn for the lovely card.  I sure had fun designing these two cards with the embossed piece of Night of Navy Cardstock that you included in my card.

That's all I have for today!  Thanks for stopping by my blog!








I recently discovered that people are using my cards and/or projects, duplicating them and entering them into challenges.  My cards and projects are my own creations and are not to be used in challenges or sold at craft shows; etc., for profit.  I don't mind if you duplicate my creativity to pass on to family members or friends as gifts or Occasions cards; but,  Please be considerate of others creativity!  Thank you!
