Laughs in Flowers

A perfect combination of my two papercrafting loves...the Cricut and Stamping. Many times a paper crafter falls into one category and rarely if ever ventures into other arenas. This is a real shame! If you are a stamper, its OK to scrapbook, if you are a Cricut fanatic it is OK to mix it up with some stamping too! This card is comprised from Cricut cuts using the paper lace cartridge, and stamped flowers.

The flowers were stamped on patterned paper with versamark ink and embossed with white embossing powder. The background is coated with clear embossing powder, and a stem was embossed in antique gold.
The tag was cut with the cuttlebug embossing plus folder.

A bit of stitching, and a bow of white satin topped with a button and twine add some softness.  I love the sentiment in this stamp set  {fabulous florets} by Stampin'Up! Isn't that pretty? Well it was certainly nice to make something more "grown up" after all the adorable kid stuff!

Happy creating,
