Hello friends!  I hope you had a wonderful week.  I have another card to share with you that I created with the Live Beautifully Collection.  This paper is simply beautiful!!  Don’t forget, it’s only available for the month of May.

#CTMHLiveBeautifully - Celebrate Card- Inspired Paper Crafts - Watermarked

I started this card off with a  5 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ base using Desert Sand cardstock. The layers on this card is from the Live Beautifully Paper found here.  I matted each layer with Colonial White cardstock and then distressed all of the layers.

The flowers and leaves for this card were first cut from the Cricut Flower Market Cartridge using Fern, Blossom and Thistle cardstock. After cutting the flower images, I sprayed the petals with a very small amount of water and crinkled each petal and then shaped them.  I added Desert Sand Ink to the edged of each petal before layering them to form the flower.

I added Blush Shimmer Ribbon and gold accents from the My Girls Compliments.

  2. The flowers on your card are gorgeous. I’ll have to try your technique some time; thanks for sharing. BL

  3. I’m so glad you checked out our challenge and joined in. Your card is gorgeous and like I said on Facebook, you have inspired me to make a shadow box with these design papers and the flowers from Flower Market. I was surprised to read that you used desert sand on the edges of your flowers…just the other day another scrapper mentioned she often uses desert sand because it appears as gold…and this proved it. Thanks for sharing with us at Color Dare’s Live Beautifully challenge. You may be interested in our weekly color challenges as well…would love you to share your projects.
