Flower Trio

Hi, it's Lois here with the Monday edition of the CottageCutz blog.  We're still featuring dies from the Mother's Day release, but be sure to check out our new "Just for Guys" release now in the Scrapping Cottage on-line store.  And you might want to take advantage of the Memorial Day sale -- up to 50% off on Select dies and 25% off on this new "Just for Guys" release.  How fun!  New dies on sale!

Now, on to my card.  I'm going back really far for my layout.  I love to look back at old layouts from the Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge.  While I'm using the layout as a starting point, I have adjusted it a bit to accommodate my design.  This is Sketch Challenge 27 which was from June of 2005, long before I started doing the challenges.  So it's almost like I'm participating in the original challenge.

As I said previously, I adjusted the sketch by actually eliminating the three individual panels.  This is my card:

To start my card, I cut the pieces from the Stitched Tulip and Daisies die, all from white cardstock.

Using a variety of Copic markers, I colored each piece and assembled my three flowers/pots.

I then cut two shelves from brown cardstock, using the Shelf with Plants die.

I cut an 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of white cardstock and a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of woodgrain patterned paper.

After cutting one of the shelves down to size, I glued the patterned paper onto the white card base and added the two shelves.

After placing small foam pop dots on the back of the three flowers and pots, I added them to the shelves,  . . .

. . . stamped the rustic sentiment, and my card was finished.

CottageCutz dies used on my card are:

So pretty Lois- the background reminds me of a paneled wall- and your shelves with the potted flowers look great- creative work
