Floral Friday: Sweet Sugarplum Flowers using Botanical Builder Framelits

Today’s card was inspired from the leftovers of when I made my mum’s 60th birthday card a couple of weeks ago. I love how leftovers from one project can flow straight onto the next project, that’s probably why I’m very bad at tidying my desk up.

The background paper comes from the Succulent Garden ds which is one of my favourite packs this year, probably because it has Mint Macaron and Sweet sugarplum in it.  All the flowers and leaves were created using whisper white cardstock and cut from the Botanical Builders Framelits. To make them look a little softer I inked the edges with Sweet Sugarplum ink and the stamping sponges. To make the sponges go further I always cut them into quarters before use so I can have four colours from one sponge.

The greetings panel was created exactly the same as my card from Monday using the Stitched Shape Framelits and the Layering Circles Framelits over the top of a doily. The sentiment is from the Butterfly Basics stamps set which is one where I should use more than just the lovely sentiment stamps.

The lace doilies from the Spring/Summer catalogue and the Sweet Sugarplum enamel shapes in the flower centres just add a bit of embellishment.

Happy Crafting
