SSINKspiration Card Sketch SSINKCS37 Meets Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge: Petite Petals

Good morning!  After a sweltering hot start the weekend we had a little bit of relief yesterday, maybe a preview of the fall to come.  I was able to spend the afternoon stamping with the ladies and we had a lit of fun learning a new technique and enjoying some of the fabulous new holiday products.  It's back to the week which means it's time for another card sketch over on the SSINKspiration blog.  I really love card sketches as it helps me come up with new layouts and ideas to change things up.  I also decided to combine this card sketch with the Hand Stamped Sentiments color sketch which uses three of the fabulous new 2016-2018 In Colors.

I started with Flirty Flamingo cardstock for the cardbase and then added a layer of Dapper Denim behind the Whisper White cardfront that was embossed with the Big Shot and the Festive Embossing Folder.  Next I added a piece of Sweet Sugarplum designer series paper from the 2016-2018 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack across the middle.

For the three circle elements I cut out three Whisper White circles and coordinating scalloped circles using the Big Shot and Layering Circles Framelits.  I decided to use the Petite Petals stamp set (which I haven't used in quite a while) and stamped three flowers in each Sweet Sugarplum, Flirty Flamingo, and Dapper Denim on Whisper White cardstock and then punched them out with the Petite Petals Punch.  I attached the flowers with just a little glue in the center so I could curl up the petals for some dimension.

The greeting is from the Sweet Cupcake stamp set and was stamped on Flirty Flamingo cardstock using Dapper Demin ink and then cut it out with the Big Shot and Layering Ovals Framelits.  The greeting was attached with dimensionals and the final touch was to add a small bow tied with Dapper Denim 3/8" Ruched Ribbon (I love the look and texture of this ribbon!!)

The bright cheery colors and patterns are so fun to send special birthday wishes, can't wait to mail it out!  Make sure to check out the other cards the design team created using the card sketch, there's so many different options you're sure to find something to inspire you and then we would love for you to play along with us and share what you create.
