I wasn't about to let that die cut card get the best of me...

Well, I'm back with another card created for SPCC Color Combo Challenge #7. I encourage you to play along! Everyone is super sweet & it is really fun to go see what everyone is creating!


Here's the combo:





If you read my previous post, I ATTEMPTED creating a die cut shaped card, but had a major mental block & gave up on it. But, not to be a quitter, I was determined to use the diecut shape!!!

I started with the white cardstock base that I had previously cut using my Cuttlebug & the largest Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Scallop Circle die. It measures approx. 4 inches across. I let the die hang over the edge of the card fold, so that when cut, it would create a hinge at the top.


Here's "BLOOM where you are planted":




I have to say that this is one of my favorite recent creations...something about it just makes me SMILE :0) I think it the fun scallop edge & the yellow cardstock...it just screams SUMMER!!!


Here's a view from the top so you can see where it hinges...




& finally a close-up of the flowers. I cut them from a K & Company Wild Saffron tag using an exacto knife, then curled the petals to create some dimension & finished them off with a Kaiser pearl in the center of each!



and a project just isn't complete for me without a little bit of stitching!!!


Supplies:


White cardstock base-unknown
