2 more cards I made

The other 2 cards I demo'ed was a 3x3 card and a 4x4 card. I love experimenting with different sizes and types of card. Just to change things up a bit.

3x3 card: I used a Tempting Teal base and folded in half. Then I stamped Bud Basics on white cardstock scrap 2 times in brown ink. I demoed coloring in with blender pens using pastel chalks and using ink pads on the Bud Basic large flower outline. I cut out each flower and layered them on top of each other and punched a hole in the center with a 1/16" punch and placed a brad in the center. Then I layered these on a 2x2 square of Regal Rose that had been wheeled with Petals jumbo wheel in Regal Rose ink. Before I adhered these to the center on my card, I layed a 3x1 strip of designer paper on the bottom. I used a piece of the Sweet on You paper from last spring's mini.

4x4 card: started with a base of Almost Amethyst, folded in half. I stamped "happy" from the Polka dots and Paisely stamp set on the top left corner in brown. I took a strip of Rose Red, 2x3 3/4 and wheeled the Petals jumbo wheel in the same color. I layed this on along the bottom, leaving an even strip along the edges. Then I punched a 1 5/8" circle out of chocolate chip and a 1 1/5 " circle out of white. I stamped a flower on the white, and attached the circles together. Before I placed these on the right side, just above the Rose Red strip, I layed brown gingham ribbon on the edge of the Amethyst and Rose. I attached the ribbon to the inside of the card using Zots glue dots. I also tied to smaller piece of ribbon around the ribbon strip in the front to look like a bow.
