Crazy for Hope Blooms

Happy Saturday! We had a blast at last night's release party - oh my goodness the Divas and Guest Divas made some GORGEOUS creations this release! Pure eye candy! Anyhow, the sets and dies you've been seeing us peek the past few days are all available over at the Verve store!  Yippee!

For today, I'm sharing a clean and simple card I made with the new Hope Blooms set and the Floral Circles Die Set.

This came together so quickly, and I just love how it turned out. Inspired by the fabulous creations Charmaine always makes with embossing folders, I challenged myself to use an embossing folder on a CAS card this release.  I love the dramatic border this one creates on the basic gray background.  I embossed the sentiment from Hope Blooms in Black, then added a bit of mini ric rac and a mini library clip to ground my flower.  The flowers are both embossed in black and cut out with the Floral Circles Die Set.  One with a die larger than the stamp and one with a die smaller than the stamp.  I like it!  {grin}  Then I just colored the flowers, layered them on dimensionals, punched a border and mounted on a blushing bride cardstock base.  Can you believe no glitter was harmed in the making of this card?  That's crazy!  LOL

Well, that's all from me today!  Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you have a FABULOUS weekend!
