Big Caribbean Paisley Blossom


I am really going to miss cool caribbean when it goes in one month. I have stockpiled it and hope it lasts a long time. I decided I wanted a monochromatic card with it. I started with a square card (truth be told I need to order envelopes and I still have some square ones!) I used my paisley bg stamp inked in white craft at the top. The bottom is friends and flowers ss kit from Stampin'Up!. I scalloped the bottom and used my sewing machine to stitch the scallops and also at the top of it. The next layer is cool caribbean distressed around the edges to frame the whisper white cuttlebugged square. The flower was inked with cool caribbean and stamped on whisper white, cut out and inked around the edges with more cool caribbean. I stamped the little flowers from paper tray in caribbean with white craft centers. Big pieces was what I used to create the center of the flower. I stamped it and pierced the edges of the flower. I stamped polka dots and petals in the center and used stickles on the petals finishing it with a brad. I sewed around the edges of the flower on my sewing machine as well. This is going to a friend who had surgery today. Thanks for looking and enjoy the possibilities!
