SC173 Blossoms Abound

With the snow we have had and the ice this is a welcome card to make. I love Lilacs anyway, they smell so pretty. This sketch is from SCS.
I found a package of Cranberry Crisp so that is what I used. Kind looks like one of the colors we have in the spring and summer. Can't always use Lovely Lavender and Lavender Lace for Lilacs. Come to think of it White ones would be really pretty on colored card stock. Hmmmm.....
Supplies needed:
Cranberry Crisp Card stock and Ink pad
WW Card stock
Brown Gel Pen
Old Olive Ink pad
Choc. Chip ribbon
Choc. Chip Card stock
Cut WW card stock at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 fold in half for get 4 1/4 x 5 1/2, cut another WW piece at 4 3/8 x 3 and one at 3 1/2 x 2. On the two smaller pieces stamp your image with the 2 step stamp set Blossoms Abound, with Cranberry Crisp stamping off once for the first step and then direct from ink pad to card stock lining up images. Do the same with the leaf stamp only with Old Olive and stamping the vine to the leaf first direct from the stamp pad then stamping off once for the leaves.
With Brown Gel Pen do dashed lines all around the edges. Cut CC card stock at 3 3/4 x 2 1/4 mount to smallest stamped image. Then another CC piece cut at 4 5/8 x 3 1/4 and mount to the larger stamped image piece. Set aside.
With Cranberry Crisp cut a piece at 5 x 3 3/4, stamp with cranberry crisp with little dots. Choc Chip cut at 5 1/4 x 4. Mount to the cranberry crisp one to the choc. chip piece and add brown ribbon in the center. Mount to base card. With larger piece of the stamped image one use pop dots on back and mount to center of card. The smallest stamped image piece add pop dots and mount to center again. See sample for details on where to place things.
Your card is now finished and ready to send. This was a simple design and turned out so pretty.
Hope you enjoyed today's project.
