SU Flower Shop Fancy Edge Card — In Color

Challenge Time
Today I played two challenges. The Fab Friday Challenge and the SUO Challenge

Fab Friday
This week the  Fab Friday challenge was to use to use the new Stampin' Up! In Colors — just a few or all five. I chose to use all five. At first it was a bit of a challenge (no pun intended) since I don't especially like Cucumber Crush and Mint Macaron together. While it's still not my favorite color combo, It didn't turn out too bad.

SUO Challenge #125, The Cutting Edge
The second challenge was to create a project, using only Stampin’ Up! products, with at least one of its cut edges as something other than a straight line. 

I made my fancy cut edge with the Flower Shop stamp set and the Pansy Punch. I cut the front of the card base back about an inch and then attached the stamped and punched flowers.

Design Details:
  • The leaves and sentiment are from the Crazy About You Stamp Set
  • I used a piece of Metallic Gold Baker's Twine for the butterfly bodies.
  • Stampin' Dimensionals lift the butterflies off of the card front.
