Parisian Blossoms Pocket Card

Forever Blossoms Frame

Well, it happened I didn't post yesterday.  It was an unusually busy day and by the time I sat down at my computer it was pretty late.

I have 2 versions of my card to day.  I wonder which one you will like better?


Card 1- Stamp the cherry blossom from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and color it using Stampin' Blends. Stamp the sentiment from the Timeless Tropical stamp set.  Cut out a frame using the Stitched Shapes and the Layering Square dies.  Adhere the Whisper White layer on to the Petal Pink card base.  Line the frame with Foam Adhesive strips and adhere back on to the card, taking care to line up the design.  Apply adhesive to the square piece and carefully place in the middle of the frame, again taking care to line up the design.  Color the rhinestones using the Light Calypso Coral stampin' Blend.  Tie a Petal Pink bow and attach it to the stem using a glue dot.

Card 2


The main differences on this card is  the larger Whisper White piece and the inner square  of the frame were embossed using the Subtle 3-D embossing folder.  It also has a Petal Pink layer, a Whisper White card base, and the ribbon is tied around both the Whisper White and Petal Pink layers.

What do you think Card 1 or Card 2?  Let me know what you think?

Thanks for posting again today, Sharon! I was worried about you yesterday. :) Both of these cards are beautiful, but I like card number one the best. I like the simplicity of the smaller bow in particular. Thank you for being a constant inspiration especially during these crazy days at home.


Beautiful cards! I love this frame technique! I like the bow on card number one, but I love the subtle embossing on card number two! So clever!!!

Thank you Kay! I appreciate your comment. We are doing well and hope you are too! I like the daily challenge to create and post and am happy that it helps even a little bit during this crazy moment in time.

Thanks Kerry! I appreciate your feedback. I think I need to make another card using your suggestions. Look for it soon!

Thank you Kerry! I am going to remake the card combining those 2 things!
