Crafter's Companion April Flower Challenge


How has your week been going?  Mine has been extra busy but I did have time to make a card for the Crafter's Companion April Flower Challenge.  I used the new Party Paws Stamp Set - Bamboo.  I figured since he was holding a big ole flower he was the perfect choice!! lol 

I stamped it him out on Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then I colored the image with my Spectrum Noir markers

I'm totally into making Easel cards and actually felt like I was making them too often.  But I decided that an easel card just worked for this project. 

I found some pretty floral paper in my stash and used it on the base of my card.  I stamped out two sentiments and colored them with a Spectrum Noir marker to color match them to the colored image.  I punched out one sentiment to use as the center of a flower embellishment and the other one I trimmed into a banner shape and adhered it to the inside of the card with double sided adhesive squares.  This raised it up a bit and gave the card a stopper to hold it while it is open.

I finished up by making a little banner out of scrap pieces of my paper and a bit of red bakers twine.

I like it!  I hope you do too.  And I hope you get a chance to join in on the flower challenge this month too.  You could be the big winner of the $30 gift card to the Crafer's Companion online store!!  What are you waiting for?
