WSC #11- Take Two


This was the second card that I created using the sketch that Beate posted for her WSC #11. I finally quit fiddling with it around 1am, but couldn't decide if I should post it... It seems that's been happening a ~lot~ lately. LOL

I LOVE the Basic Grey Infuse papers but that flower gave me pause. I still think the flower is a little weird, but I've modified it SO many times, I figure it's time to just learn to like it and move on. LOL

I started with the 5 1/2" Chocolate Chip CS base, but then goofed when I cut out the patterned paper on the bottom. I thought the margin on all sides was a little too big, so I cut my base down to 5"... LOL, wouldn't you know, that was a touch too small. I blame the LATE hour on making silly mistakes. Who me? Take responsibility for not paying attention? Psha... :P

I don't remember the exact dimensions of the patterned papers that I cut out, but I just cut them where I thought they would layer well. I inked the edges of all the paper with Chestnut Roan chalk ink and adhered them to the card base. Then I used my large oval punch on the pink paper, stamped my sentiment in Old Olive and then used my small oval punch. I adhered the two together with mini-pop dots, and then used regular sized pop dots before attaching it to the card. I also used the new Chocolate Taffeta ribbon, which is sooo pretty.

Now... That flower! :) I thought it would be nice to use the die cuts that coordinate with the paper, so I punched out the stem and the large flower. Since I cut down the CS base, the stem wouldn't fit as is. LOL Sooooooo, I cut off the piece that I thought would work the best, trimmed off a few stray leaves, and inked the edges. I used mini-pop dots on the inked pink petals, and attached a new flower center. I still didn't really like flower, so I started cutting and this is what I ended up with. LOL :)
