To My Friend- Create with Connie & Mary 180

There are so many wonderful new products in the New Occasions Mini, I was in a dilemma as to where to start and with what.
So, I started with what I love to do the most - make a 3D flower, using the new Blossoms punch.
Then I saw the sketch challenge with CCM and realized that the flower would incorporate very nicely into the sketch.


 


The base of the card is Night of Navy 5 by 10" scored at 5" and folded in half.
The next layer was made using the Fancy Fan Texturz plate.  With a brayer, Versa mark was applied to the plate.  A piece of Soft suede card stock was placed on top of the inked up plate and put through the Big Shot.  Gold embossing powder was then applied to the inked card stock and heat set with an embossing tool.  This step tied this layer with the pattern in the  Pocket Full of Posies designer paper.
The flower was made using the steps outlined in this video:




Using tombo glue silver glass glitter was applied to the top of the flower.

Stamps: Friendly Phrases
Inks: Night of Navy, Versa Mark
Papers: Night of Navy, Soft Suede, Pocketful of Posies designer paper, Baja Breeze, Poppy Parade
Accessories: Fancy Fan Texturz Plate, Blossom Punch, 1 4/4 by 7/8" oval punch, Silver glass glitter, pearls, gold embossing powder
