Did you call for Pansies? I’m in love with the new Stampin’ Up! Pansy Punch! I made a super cute card yesterday for the Mojo Monday 300th sketch challenge and on it I had a little pansy flower that I made using the new Pansy Punch. Well, today I kept with the same color theme and did three of these cute easy flowers and what a great little card for someone. Add a little piercing and you have a classic.
Creative Tips -
- The color combination is straight out of the new Color Coach – Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie.
- I kept the card clean and simple. This card believe it or not can be put together in under 10 minutes – with all the little extras too – the pearl accents, piercing and paper piecing.
- I used a Whisper White piece of scrap paper that was sized 1 3/4” x 4 5/8”, a piece of Coastal Cabana – 1 7/8” x 4 3/4” and a Crushed Curry piece that was 2 1/4” x 5 3/16”.
- To jazz it up, I added some Paper Piercing using the Essentials Mat Pack. Don’t be afraid to add different points of view in piercing rather than just all around. By breaking it up, it adds it’s own element to the card.
- I broke up the fibers using my fingers on the petals of the pansies. I curled them in and glued them together using Liquid Glue.
- A center punched in Crushed Curry using the 1/2” Circle Punch provided consistency along with three small pearls.
- The Flower Panel is popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals for some depth.
- I finished the card off with the fun Thank You saying from Four You, one of our newest greeting sets and three pearl in a triangle.
It’s a fun, simple and classic card that will brighten anyone’s day. I hope you’ll be stamping this holiday week! Have a Happy Fourth of July!
