Sanded Summer Flowers

Hi friends!  I bought the new Summer Flowers (formerly Flower Corner 1) embossing folder as soon as I saw it in the Classy Cards 'n Such store, and I put some purple Core'dinations cardstock inside and ran it through my Big Shot machine. I then took my paper out of the folder and used the Sanded Core'dinations technique from Technique Junkies. See how it brings out the embossed flowers from the embossing folder? So cool! You can do this with any of the embossing folders in the Classy Cards 'n Such store.

I didn't want to cover up any of this gorgeous sanding, so I used some Baby Pearls - White in the centers of the flowers. I stamped the sentiment from the Hugs & Kisses Sentiments stamp set (JustRite) onto some white cardstock and cut it out with a Lacey Circle die (Spellbinders).

I love the gorgeous simplicity of this card. Think of all the different colors you could do this with, and it would be perfect for birthday cards, Mother's Day cards, friendship cards, sympathy cards, and thinking of you cards.  Please feel free to use this code, Holly-10, to save 10% when you go shopping at Classy Cards 'n Such.  You'll find all kinds of wonderful card making supplies there, from paper to ink pads, dies and embossing folders, ribbons, lace and bling.

I'm entering this into the Perfect Sentiments #64 challenge - anything goes with a die cut.  I have the sentiment on the die cut Lacey Circle.  :-)

Tomorrow is Friday, yay!  I hope you have a wonderful weekend, whether you're watching the Super Bowl or stamping up a storm.  :-)
