Sweet girl with bird

I had a few minutes to make a card today, so I thought I'd make one with Flowersoft to enter into a challenge.


This was made with a Flowersoft card topper.  Card toppers sure make it fast to make a card with no coloring.  I added some Marachino Baker's Twine from The Twinery.  The Polar White Flowersoft is stuck on with Flowersoft glue.   The background is a bunch of hearts emboss folder that I embossed from a friends embossing folder, gotta love sharing from time to time ;).  I cut the card topper out with the second to the biggest Spellbinder's Nestabilities Labels Eight.

Poinsettia card topper

Happy Sunday...  Flowersoft was having a challenge to create a project with Flowersoft images so I had to dig out my Flowersoft goodies to make a card.  The card I made is made with the Flowersoft Die Cut Dimensions - Christmas poinsettia card toppers.   The card topper packs are not a decoupage set, but the unique method of die cutting the images allow areas of the design to pop out giving a very distinctive dimensional effect and with lots of extra die cut elements on each sheet you have the added flexibility to freestyle your card designs. The results are stunning and always different, which has made these new designs an instant hit with crafters. I cut a white cardstock base to fit the card topper.
Paper: white
Accessories: Flowersoft Ivory, Flowersoft Glue
