Berry Nice Transparency

Stamps: Boho Backgrounds
Inks: Purely Pomegranate, Close To Cocoa
Papers: Berry Bliss DSP, Chocolate Chip, White, Purely Pomegranate, Pretty in Pink
Accessories: Brads, Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon, Scallop Punch, 1 3/8", 1 1/8", 1", 1/2", 1/4" all circle punches, Boho Blossoms punch, sponge

Card was made for a punch swap for our Stamp Share. This was one of my trial cards.

Again, using a report cover transparency as a card base, I cut the DSP to 3" x 3". Adhere DSP to card base. You cannot see it in this picture, but I also used a piece of Close to Cocoa CS 3 x 3 adhered to inside of card, for your greeting, etc.

Adhere ribbon to base. Either now or after accent flower adhered, pierce or punch holes and place pink boho flowers on card base using brads.

To assemble accent flower: Stamp boho flower in pom. and chip on white and punch out 1/4" and 1". Stamp white scrap with boho blossoms background, punch out a scallop circle shape, sponge edges with cocoa . Assembly order: Brad, 1/4" piece, 1/2" circle, boho blossoms flower, 1" image, 1 1/8" pom., 1 3/8" chip, scallop image. Attach entire accent piece to card with brad from flower center.

I debated and finally decided not to put a greeting on card base using StayzOn. The DSP and flowers are busy enough without adding more clutter. The point of the transparency card is a cleaner, more contemporary look. I could go back and try it later. I will sleep on that though.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Keep being creative, Sandy
