DSP Day - Cut Out Flowers

This week's card takes advantage of some floral paper.  I've cut out two flower designs from a Fancy Pants paper and mounted them on popsicle stick stems with ribbon leaves.  This was a really fun card to make!

Project Notes:
  • The card layout is very simple, just a folded piece of cardstock with a 1 1/2" border of designer paper on one side.
  • When cutting out the flowers, you may not want to use the whole flower as shown with the round one here.  Also the one with petals had some overlapping color from another flower.  I just positioned it on the card so the other color was covered with the circle flower.

  • To make the stems, cover popsicle sticks with designer paper, trim and sand the edges.

Finally, this card works for this week's Ways to Use It challenge at Splitcoast.  We were to use letters like a ransom note where the letters are cut out or pulled from different sources.  I used 4 different styles/colors of stickers for "Grow."  The inside greeting is - you guessed it - 'where you are planted.'

Hope you have a great weekend!
