Cards for No Reason
Sometimes I feel like the only cards I get time to make are my DT ones and that there's no time just to play. These two cards were made just to play with making some oversized flowers. I saw a really fab flower when I was browsing through the entries of last week's Shabby Tea Room challenge and tried to recreate it. I haven't really succeeded so I have an excuse to keep on playing.
The first card, which for some reason I don't like too much, uses Papermania paper on SU vanilla card stock. The largest and smallest flowers were cut using the Woodware punches and the inbetween ones were cut on the Cricut. They're not quite inbetween enough which is perhaps why I don't like it. The second card, which I love, uses Pink Petticoat Vintage Rose papers. The flower is cut on the Cricut and is also made using SU vanilla card stock. I actually made the flower for the first card but as it turned out peachy it didn't go. Both cards were made somewhat shabby by distressing and inking the edges. Hope you like.
