It had me at "Hello"! The Lemon Flower paper stack from DCWV that is. It is sooooo beautiful! My favorite color is green and I love pairing yellow with it (easy choice for the color of my business logo!). So when I saw this stack in Joann's, I immediately picked up the 12x12 and the 4.5x6.5 stacks. And look at my first project with it in 30 minutes!! Did I say I was in love?!?!
The green background is from the small stack. I trimmed it up a little so that it has a small white border around it. The black floral piece has embossing powder all over the black part which makes it shiny and very pretty. I cut that about a 1/2 inch smaller on all sides to give a larger green border.
Before I glued the black paper down, I cut a piece of beautiful Goldenrod seam binding and ran it behind the paper. I then took the streamers, tied a knot and ran a flure de lis charm on one of the them. Once the charm was in place, I tied my bow.
The only Cricut cut on the card is the tag for the sentiment. It is from Once Upon a Princess and it is the tag on the butterfly cut. I used my G to elongate it to just the right size for my card. I stamped my sentiment on it, added some bling and pop dots for good measure and adhered it to the card.
When it was completed, I knew I had made a good investment in this paper stack. Looking at this card makes me happy and I hope it does the same for you. Tell me what you think and I will see you later!
