So while I was in my stamping slump, Monica Pendleton showcased a wonderful tutorial for Tissue Flowers on SCS. I shot the video for it, but didn’t create a card. I finally used my flower to create a card that would work for the Just For Fun Color Challenge this week.


My card base is a 6″ x 7 1/2″ piece of Gina K. Ivory cardstock folded in half. The lower 1/3 of the card front was embossed with Cuttlebug’s Victoria Embossing Folder. The 2 3/8″ x 6″ piece of My Mind’s Eye Just Dreamy 2 paper was sanded, then sponged with Antique Linen Distress ink. The 5/8″ x 6″ Chocolate paper strip is also from the Just Dreamy 2 Collection. The upper edge of the paper was paper pierced. The sentiment is from Our Craft Lounge’s Big Thanks and was stamped in Walnut Stain Distress ink.


The strips on the inside of the card measure 1 1/2″ x 6″ and 3/8″ x 6″. They were sanded and sponged with Antique Linen ink. The sentiment was stamped with Walnut Stain Distress ink. A small flower was added to tie everything together.

Here is a video for the visual learner:
