The Whisper White focal panel is stamped in Soft Sky ink with the sentiment block from the set Season of Joy. A scrap piece of sky cardstock is cut into a half-circle using the Coluzzle Cutting System, and then attached to the right side of the white using SNAIL Adhesive. The petal outline from the set Pick a Petal is stamped in cranberry onto a piece of artichoke cardstock five different times, and then cut out. Each petal is attached to the panel using Dimensionals. The petals on the edge went over a bit, so I used my CutterBee Scissors to trim the excess off. I used the 3/4" Circle Punch to punch out one of the blue peppermint pieces from a scrap of the BasicGrey paper, then I mounted it onto a piece of sky paper. I carefully trimmed the sky piece to make a 1/16" border around the peppermint. I took the 1" Circle Punch, and punched out a cranberry circle as well. The three are attached to each other with adhesive, before attaching a little *bling* in the form of a Baby Blue Jumbo Rhinestone in the center of the circles. This formed the center to my flower.
The center is popped up from the petals using two Dimensionals stacked on top of each other. I decided not to trim the center even though it extended past the panel. The "joy" sentiment is from the set Perfect Presentation (hostess), and it is stamped in artichoke ink onto white paper, cut out, matted onto cranberry paper, and attached to the focal panel using adhesive. To finish off the card, I tied a piece of Artichoke Organdy Ribbon around the top, and added a few sprigs of Siver Cording before tying the last knot in the organdy.
That's it for today, but tomorrow is the Ways To Use It Challenge at SCS! I hope to have something else to share with you. Until then....Hugs ~ Mercy
