Outside of my comfort zone card colors here. Plums and pinks usually scare me!! lol. Trying to branch out and use some supplies that I've had for years, namely the embossed cardstock I purchased 6 years ago. Made the other elements match it, so here's my creation!
Marcy scalloped punch, white pen (SU) and Marvy circle punch. Ribbon is from WalMart and my biggest "new" embellishment is the BLING!! They are self-adhesive fingernail charms from the $1 store. 20 to a package and fun to use!! 10 were pink, 10 were clear. They were in a clover shape with a little rhinestone "tail", so some of them I cut apart and used as a single crystal. Then, I embedded them in Crystal Effects for safe sticking!
I cut the flower image and then curled the petals by putting my middle finger's nail on the underside of the petal (start at the center of the flower) and my thumbnail on the opposite side. Pull, and the cardstock begins to curl. Repeated several times until I got the curl I wanted. Then bent the petal inward at the center and it makes a wonderful 3-D flower.
Then, I stamped the outline flower again in White Craft ink on Perfect Plum cardstock and cut out the flower's individual petals so they would look like leaves (a shameless case of someone else's card I saw yesterday. Don't remember poster~sorry). I attached those Perfect Plum petals to the underside of the flower with Crystal Effects.
The flowers are attached with mounting foam tape.
