Thanks a bunch!

Here's a card I put together using my new nestabilities dies I got for Christmas! I was ready to do something colorful - spring time - I'm so burned out on winter and snow right now!

The flowers were stamped on white card stock, colored with Copic Markers, then painstakingly cut out with scissors. I remember seeing a blog entry regarding how to make your own prima flowers with a punch and then going over the flower with a stylus to make it pop up. That is what I did with these.

Here is a close up of how the flowers look.

I did pop up a few of these using foam tape. I also added Kaiser Craft self adhesive pearls to the centers of the flowers. The flower stamp is from Cards of Maria - I think this came out very cheerful and would perk up anyone's day!

Stamps - Cards of Maria, sentiment from Great Impressions, Leaf by The Angel Company
Copic Ciao Markers
Green card stock - Bazzill
White card stock - Georgia Pacific
Green gingham ribbon
Kaiser Craft Pearls

Have a great day!
