using lots of my faves

Between the celebrating and the playing around with my Big Shot and Cuttlebug, I haven't posted any cards lately! Here's one that I've been working on intermittently.

The card is made from Core'dinations cardstock that I hadn't realized until very recently is now available at Hobby Lobby! Thankfully I had a 40% off coupon and got a nice big package of it. I creatively Cuttled with the Cuttlebug Floral Screen A2 embossing folder, then sanded the embossing to reveal the lighter color. I embossed around the unembossed area of the card front with a rectangle Nestabilities die, then stamped the Verve image and sentiment on white cardstock that I'd cut and embossed using the crease pad and a single pass through the Big Shot. I used Memento ink for the stamping.

This is a close up view of the flowers. I'd made these using floral wire, clear liquid glue and three colors of Flower Soft. It wasn't until I thought about my materials "list" that I realized how many of my current favorite things I'd used in making this card. Fun! :-)


  1. Adorable card, Jay! Love the Flower Soft idea - just adds so much dimension.

  2. Ya' know, I didn't like this embossing folder, but you sure have made it look good :)! Very pretty card!

  3. Love your card, Jay! The flowers are just so cute with the stuff you used to make them. I will need to try to get some of that. TFS

  4. Thanks so much for the lovely comments! I really like what Flower Soft can add to a card.
