Out of the Box Blooms

Earlier this summer, one of my coworkers asked me to make some "Welcome" cards for her cabin. She wanted to write a personal note of welcome inside each card to place in the bedrooms where her guests would be staying. Recently, she asked me to make another one like I did earlier this year with the In Full Blooms, but specifically requested the colors of Sahara Sand and Not Quite Navy to fit the beach theme of one of her rooms.



This is a relatively quick and easy card to make. After I cut my Sahara Sand base cardstock, I masked and stamped the In Full Bloom flower four times. I colored them with my Not Quite Navy reinker and blender pen and then highlighted them with a white gel pen. I then hand cut around each bloom----which also qualifies my card for our Doubledare Dog Challenge (DDC) given to us by Anne (jdmommy) this week to make an out-of-the-box image on our project. I then cut my Not Quite Navy cardstock, used the MS zig zag border punch on the bottom and adhered this panel to the inside of the Sahara Sand. I love how striking the flowers look against this panel! I paper pierced a row above the flowers and then stamped by Welcome (alphabet stamp set by There She Goes) sentiment above that. Voila! El presto done-o!
