Earthy flowers

This was the second demonstration at my Mini catalogue launch at the beginning of the month. I really love the dark, earthy colours together, and all the embossing... and well, I just like it, ok?

I die-cut the flower and then ran the smallest flower through the Big Shot again using the Elegant Bouquet embossing folder.

There’s barely any stamping on this card... and no Whisper White or Very Vanilla, which is quite unusual for me. Even the “Hello” is stamped onto a tiny scrap of Botanical Gazette Designer Series Paper.

Stamps: Basic Phrases
Cardstock: Sahara Sand, Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler
Paper: Botanical Gazette
Ink: Cherry Cobbler
Accessories: Big Shot, Elegant Bouquet embossing folder, Fun Flowers die, Word Window Punch, Designer Big buttons – Sweet Stitches, linen thread, scallop edge punch
