A Bit of a Flower Patch Frenzy

A couple of weeks ago I made a friend a card for her birthday.  I was going to post a photo of it on here once the big day was over, but realised yesterday that I had forgotten to take one.

As a result, I decided to remake the card. It's as close to the original as I could remember, and this is what I came up with.

I used a piece of Designer Series Paper from the Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack and layered a piece of Lost Lagoon on top that I had used the Striped Scallop Thinlits Die on. I went a little mad with stamping flowers in various colours, that I had enough left over to make another card (see below) and a 3D project that I will share with you another day.

For the second card, I turned it 90 degrees from the original, so that it was portrait. I used the Striped Scallop Thinlits Die only on the top 2/3rds of the Lost Lagoon card stock. The bottom portion of the Lost Lagoon is actually separate from the scallop top but I butted the two close together so that it looks like one piece.

The photo does not show the three scored lines very clearly, but they are there (towards the top of the solid piece of Lost Lagoon).

The Stampin' Up! supplies used to make these cards are:

As I said, I will share the 3D project another day.

I'm not sure if any of you follow Stampin' Up! UK on Facebook. They have been running a campaign to reach 5000 likes and have just achieved this. Whoop whoop.
