Whole Lot of Lovely Leaves Bouquet - two cool

CASEd from Chris Slogar at Buckeye Inklings.

Whole Lot of Lovely Leaves & Blooms Cards

I love layers, patterns & textures and this delightful card has them all!  It features the beautiful Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper and Beautiful Bouquet stamp set!

Whole Lot of Lovely Leaves Bouquet - tranquil tide

Background Basics—I started by embossing a 5" x 3-3/4 layer of Tranquil Tide card stock with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Texture Impressions Folder.  TIP: Remember to lightly spritz the card stock before embossing for nice, deep & crisp texture.  It's matted onto a 5-1/8" x 3-7/8" Basic Black, then mounted onto a Tranquil Tide card base.

Lovely DSP—I added a 4-3/4" x 1-3/4" strip of my favorite pattern of Whole Lot of Lovely DSP across the front of the card with SNAIL.  The end is fishtailed into a banner shape with super-sharp Paper Snips.
Sweet Sentiment—I stamped the Beautiful Bouquet saying in Memento Black Ink onto a Stitched Shapes circle die-cut from Whisper White card stock.  It's layered onto a Tangerine Tango scallop circle, die-cut with the Layering Circles Framelits, then popped up with Dimensionals.

Bitty Bouquet—I decorated the circle with some die-cuts from the Bouquet Bunch Framelits.  I stamped the larger and smaller Beautiful Bouquet blossoms in Pool Party ink onto Pool Party card stock.  I added a Memento Black flower center image on the small flower, then die-cut both with the framelits.  The small flower is attached with a Glue Dot and the larger flower is popped up. 
I also die-cut the Pear Pizzazz and Soft Suede leaves with the same Bouquet Bunch Framelits.  They are adhered with Multipurpose Glue that was lightly sponged onto the back. 
Bundle It & Save—Purchase the Beautiful Bouquet and Bouquet Bunch Framelits together in a Bundle to save 10% off the cost of ordering them separately.
Finishing Touches—The focal point is finished with a Flirty Flamingo Baker's Twine bow.  I have to admit that I cringe a little when I use a color that doesn't "perfectly" match, but I thought the twine still looked fine and added a sweet touch.

Two Cool—My second version has a vertical layout with a lighter color combination.  The textured background is in Pear Pizzazz and it's layered onto a Pool Party card base.

Bouquet—The only other things I changed on the card were the Beautiful Bouquet greeting and the die-cut leaf shape is now Tranquil Tide to contrast the Pear Pizzazz background.
