Gladiola Flower


Hi everyone! I've got a real treat for you today and am really excited to be sharing not only one but two floral cards created using this month's new realease images by Clear Dollar Stamps so be sure to check out my next post for some more yummy goodness. This card was created using the beautiful Gladiola Flower Of The Month digital stamp by Clear Dollar Stamps.


The card base is Lovely Lilac layered with PTI White then Old Olive and Kraft cardstock embossed using the D'vine Swirls Embossing Folder. The image was printed on PTI White and colored in using copic markers. I wrapped double sided ribbon at the base of the stems and added a matching bow in front. The two strips of Kraft cardstock were punched out using the word window punch. I wrapped the ends around the back side of the image then finished them off with a chocoate pearl.  

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
