Big Embellies

I don't do too many cards with big embellishments because they don't fit into envelopes well...or at all! But then I started to think about it and I hand deliver the majority of the cards that I do give away, so they don't even need an envelope!  Plus I am in LOVE with the flowers in the Pop-Up Posies Designer Kit that is in the Spring Catalog so I just had to use one on my card for this fabulous sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch!
As soon as I got my kit (which I earned free some how from Stampin' Up!...I forget how though!), I just had to put one of these puppies together to see what it would look like. It is fabulous!  And since I already had one assembled, half of my work was already done!
I had some leftover Sycamore Street DSP from Sale-a-bration and it looks perfect with that big ol' fabric brad.  A flower is not complete without a butterfly fluttering by, so I inked up this little guy with my Stampin' Write markers and easily punched him out with our little butterfly punch that I love oh so much.  His antennae are made with Pool Party Baker's Twine and adhered with the rhinestone.

  1. Great use of DSP - love the bold flower! Thanks so much for playing along with us at CAS(E) This Sketch this week!

  2. You are so creative. I just love seeing all of your designs. LOVE that paper. I was really disappointed I missed out on the Sale-a-bration.
