Plaid Bunch

Howdy all, happy weekend! I finally finished some cards I started back around the first of the year. It was a great idea, just a little more labor than I thought they would take! But, I mailed 14 cards yesterday and that feels GREAT! So, there are two versions, here is the first.

Inspired by something I saw on Pinterest. You all know I love sunflowers and this just spoke to me! The plaid is Designer Series Paper from the August-December mini catalog which unfortunately is no longer available. The colors and blends from the plaid designs are awesome. This one is pretty basic in Bumble Bee and white but it is perfect for a sunflower! Tomorrow, you'll see one with more color :)

Card base is Bumblebee. Background is Whisper White embossed with the Tasteful Texture 3D folder. The dies from the Sunflowers set cut the background flower (plaid), the accent flower in Early Espresso and 3 leaves in Bumblebee. The rectangle is from the Stitched Rectangles die set. I stamped the saying in Early Espresso and added some rhinestones. The flower accent was attached to the background with fine tip glue as were the leaves to the background. The rectangle is attached with Mini Dimensionals, and the flower with regular Dimensionals. In the center of the flower I added some Shimmery Crystal Effects.

I need more practice with the Fine Tip Glue, I had it everywhere! My fingers were definitely sticky, not inky this time! Thanks for stopping by today! Product details and shopping links below. Remember Whisper White is now Basic White. I have lots of Whisper I'll be using up, butI will get a Basic soon to compare!
