Good morning all! It's a lovely Saturday morning here in my part of the world. Here's a card I made using Papertrey's Asian Fusion set. I love this set and haven't used it nearly enough. In fact, I stamped the vase and sentiment on the Top Note cut out last month and then it just sat on my stamp table. I finally finished it up yesterday.
I started by cutting a piece of linen vellum cardstock with the Top Note die from SU. I stamped the outline vase, stems and sentiment in black, then stamped the vase again on my Green Tea Leaves pp. I stamped the stems in Hawaiian Shores ink onto a scrap of the linen vellum and then carefully cut around the vase and stems.
When I put those onto the card I thought it needed something else, so I used the two largest Blossom Two nestabilites to cut out a pretty Hawaiian Shores felt flower that I mounted under the vase and stems. I also used my regular hole punch for the three felt dots on the right side of the card. I couldn't throw out the felt scrap without getting every use out of it.
For the final touches I colored the center of the flowers with a red glitter gelly roll pen and added red rhinestones to the centers of the felt dots. I'm happy with how this turned out. What do you think?
