Wow, I can't believe it is already my third week as Melanie's guest designer for her latest release, A Year of Flowers and Say it With Flowers. Be sure to check out Melanie's blog for another project I made, using these sets.
For today's project, I made a card and matching note pad holder, that fits a 3 x 5 scratch pad. I bought a set of 8 of these little scratch pads at Office Max for around $5.
The flowers were stamped and then colored with Koh-i-noor pencils. I added some extra color with a purple craft marker, then cut out the flowers and heat embossed them with clear embossing powder.
To make the background, I cut a circle from scrap paper and used re-positionable tape to hold it in place. Using that as a mask, I sponged the night sky, using Bashful Blue, Ballet Blue, Lavender Lace and Basic Black.
The background panel is backed with a very narrow black panel and again with a layer of Lavender Lace. The card base is Almost Amethyst.
To make the note pad cover, I cut a piece of card stock to 7-1/2 inches and scored at 3-1/16, 3-7/16 and 3-15/16.
Added two horizontal cuts to hold the pen. Glued the wider center scored area down to the back section. Then I glued the scratch pad in place.
Thanks for stopping by. I will be back mid-week with another project using Say it With Flowers, since I neglected it on today's post. Oops!
Have a great day!
