Control Freaks March Blog Hop!

Good evening everyone and welcome to a March Blog Hop by the Control Freaks team of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators. You may have just arrived here from my teammate Connie Babbert's blog and I hope you enjoyed her beautiful creations. She always has some great projects to show us. I will direct you to the next person at the end of my post.

This month, our them is "Beautiful Bouquet". I cheated a little by letting the Sweet Soiree Designer Paper do all the work for me. Take a look at my three almost identical cards:

All three cards have the same layers except I changed out the designer paper patterns, ribbons and sentiments. This is the first card:

And here are the layers for all three:
  • Card Bases: 11" x 4-1/4". Score and fold at 5-1/2". I used Berry Burst Cardstock for all three cards.
  • Layer #2: Sweet Soiree Designer Paper (3 different patterns), 5-1/4" x 4". Glue to card front.
  • Layer #3: Whisper White Cardstock 4" x 1-1/2". Stamp three different sentiments from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set using Berry Burst Ink. Glue about 1/4" from the bottom of the designer paper.
  • Bow: Wrap ribbon around the card above the sentiment layer and tie into a bow.
  • Bling: I used some enamel dots that I had left over from a previous Paper Pumpkin kit

Thanks so much for stopping in today to visit. I will now send you over to Kelly Acheson's blog. She always has awesome projects to show you. Make sure you visit all seven of us that are participating this month!
