Special Reason – Cutouts


This week the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is bringing you a sketch challenge.  Enjoy hopping around!


My card starts off with Blushing Bride as my base which I layered with Whisper White.  I then took a piece of Sahara Sand and cut out the flower and stem and petals from it using the Stylish Stems Framelits (included in the Special Reasons Bundle for 10% off).


It’s a little hard to tell from the picture, but the paper behind the flower is a pattern from the Falling In Love DSP.  Behind the stem and petals I placed a piece of Soft Sky cardstock.  I adhered all this over the Whisper White.


I cut out a piece of Whisper White cardstock (using the framelits) and stamped the small petal (stamping off first) in Soft Sky over it.  I then stamped the sentiment in Sahara Sand over that.  I cut out two larger petals and two smaller petals in Soft Sky and added them around the sentiment and flower.

  1. These colors go great together! Bet it’s cold in Albany…we are originally from Castleton. It’s much warmer here in southwest Florida.
