FSS Petunias

If you are looking for the FSS Blog Hop post please go here.

Hello, hope your Sunday has been a great one. We here in central Illinois have been blessed with another 2 inches of rain this weekend to top off the 8 we received during the week. Needless to say I have had plenty of time to create cards as I can't be outside! There is always a silver lining if we look for it! :) So I have been on a roll here creating cards with Tracey's flowers...you will be seeing them throughout the week and I think I will extend the idea into some bird cards a little later on.
For this card, I used the peach petunias from the Wee Hummingbirds and Petunias colored set. Although you may not be able to see this in the picture, I printed them twice and pop dotted the second layer for dimension. On the base layer I embossed with the Sizzix Scallop and Loop Ribbon embossing folder. The next layer was created using the EK Success Doily border punch...now this is not a punch around the page punch...I followed the same technique that I had done in an earlier card...the technique is here. It does take some time to get this accomplished but it sure does give a new meaning to those punches rather than just using them for border punching. The next layer I had outlined with Scor-Tape and then added some glitter to the  layer. I am really pleased with how this card turned out. Hope you enjoyed my creation. Have a great day today! Thanks tons for stopping in!

HUGS!
