PPA137-Sketch Challenge

Welcome to the Pals Paper Arts Challenge 137! We love to inspire you to create using any products you like! Here, I created a 3-D card that is suitable for giving in person. I will probably use a clear envelope in this case.

You can see that I chose to flip the sketch--perfectly admissible! The sketch is only a starting point! 

I used a print from Floral District designer series paper, then layered on another print die cut using the Paper Doily die cut. I matched the card base, ribbon and button knot to the Paper Doily cut out color, Daffodil Delight.

Across the top, I popped out my sentiment from Blessings From Heaven using the banner from Petal Cone Die in my Big Shot.

My flower is made using Rose Red card stock. I Scallop-punched out one base, and three extra punched scallops for the fluffy petals. I scrunched up each of the three extra scallops and opened them several times. Then I folded each one into quarters and used Sticky Strip to adhere each quarter onto 1/3 of the base Scallop circle. After I adhered them, I peeled the layers of each of the mushed up circles to fluff the flower! Easy and fast! 

In the middle of my flower, I used the new Vintage Faceted Buttons, adhering it with Mini Glue Dots. On top of the button, I added a teeny knot of 1/8" Daffodil Delight taffeta ribbon. 

Under my fluffy flower, I used two strips of 5/8" Daffodil Delight Seam Binding Ribbon to look like a ribbon award.

I hope you enjoyed looking and that you are inspired to create your own card, scrapbook page, book mark or anything else using paper! I would LOVE to read your comments!
