Birthday Surprise! - Mojo Monday #222
Hello! Today I have created a card using the Mojo Monday Sketch #222. I also have a Sale-a-bration sneak peek to share today. I used some of the new Sale-a-bration Designer Series Paper called Everyday Enchantment in my card today. I love this gorgeous set of papers.
The flowers were created using the Boho Blossoms Punch and I used the coordinating colors in the DSP (Pool Party, Poppy Parade, Peach Parfait and Lucky Limeade) and then adhered them together using a silver mini brad. I placed these flowers on specific parts of the DSP to look like an extension of the flower design. To create the flag, I used my Postage Punch to give the "V" a bit more "oomph" and then used the Lattice Textured Embossing Folder to create the embossed design on the flag.
Design Tip! : To give the flowers a softer look, I peeled apart the layers of the Stampin' Up! cardstock to reveal the inner linen-like look. To do this I punched the design in the cardstock then crumpled up the punched images several different times. The edges of the paper will start to lift and then you will be able to peel apart the layers of the paper.
