Betsy’s Blossoms

October 20, 2012

This is a card we made last week at Beachmere.  I love Betsy’s Blossoms, especially when you do some fussy cutting.

My base card is Whisper White and I used some scrap paper to stamp the large circle flower from Betsy’s Blossoms using Sahara Sand ink, so that I could get half and image in the top left and bottom right hand corners.

I stamped the bird image onto Whisper White card using Marina Mist ink twice and cut out one full bird image and one extra wing.  I stamped the leaf image onto Whisper White card using Wild Wasabi ink and cut it out.

I wheeled the Betsy’s Blooms Standard Wheel using Rose Red ink across a 3cm (1″) wide piece of Whisper White card.   I attached this to a piece of Rose Red card 4cm (1-1/4″) wide.  I attached this strip to the card front with the end of the leaf image tucked in behind it.

I attached the bird over the  leaf and then the extra wing using dimensionals.  I added a small pearl to the birds eye.

When I showed this card to the ladies last week, I had one immediately say it was just too plain and one immediately say they loved it.  So you can never tell which cards will be “ok” and which cards will be “loved”.  What do you think?

Bye for now, Kris.
