Classy Cards Grandma's Bouquet

Hi friends!  I make lots of cards but I'm the worst at actually putting things in the mail.  I made this for my mom and plan on having my children give it to her.

I used a number of Cheery Lynn dies on this.  Did you know that the Classy Cards 'n Such shop is running a sale.  All Cheery Lynn dies are now 50% off?!  Use code CLD during checkout.

I started by creating the pink Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms flowers.  I stamped the flowers with a dark pink Memento Ink and cut them out using the matching Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms Die.  I sponged Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry Distress inks on the petals using a Mini Ink Blending Tool and then shaped the flowers using a Paper Blossoms Tool Kit and molding mat. To add a little glam, I added a flat-back pearl to the center of each.

I cut the Cheery Lynn Small Lollipop Cutie Fringe with white card stock, sponged Squeezed Lemonade distress ink to the edges with the Mini Ink Blending Tool, and rolled them with the Roller Tool from the Paper Blossom Tool Kit.  I added a little glue to the beginning and end so the flowers would stay tightly rolled.  

After the flowers were done I cut four of the Sue Wilson French Collection Corners out of the beautiful Gold Leaf Metallic Paper.   I mounted the four corners together on paper from the Kaisercraft On This Day paper pad, backed with another piece of Gold Leaf Curious Metallic before gluing them to the cream 5.5 x 5.5 card.

I arranged the flowers and adhered them with foam pads.  This way if I needed to I could peel them up and reposition, I wouldn't have the same flexibility with glue.  I added Cheery Lynn flourish die cuts around the flowers.  The leaves and flourishes were cut out of Cryogen White card stock and have a soft shimmer.

The Cheery Lynn Grandma die cut was covered in Frantage Silver Embossing Powder.  I love this stuff, it's large flakes coat everything so nicely.  After adding the Frantage the die cut looks like a metal embellishment.  

Thanks for visiting!
