Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Meaningful Flowers


Welcome to our Paper Pumpkin Possibilities blog hop and our exploration of the August kit: Meaningful Flowers.  Each designer will have a clever and creative idea for alternative designs.

The kit includes these elements.

This kit has 2 card designs and 4 cards per design.  

I love to cut up pretty envelopes and use them as card layers.  So I cut the edges off either side of the envelope.  Cut off the adhesive on the envelope flap, open the bottom fold and cut at the fold line.

My first altnerative design shows stamping a background layer and the printed layer from the envelope onto the center of the card front.

My second alternative design is the same printed envelope layer on top of an embossed background layer.  I stamped off the floral image once on my grid paper and then applied the image over the stamped sentiment.  The edges of the sentiment square are smudged with Garden Green ink so it stands out against the Basic White layer. 

This printed paper is stunning and really stands out on the Basic White layer and Garden Green card base.  Which do you like best: the embossed or stamped layer idea?

I loved this kit's envelopes too much to not deconstruct them to use them as DSP as well! ;) I like your flower stamping also! :)
