Primrose Daydream

From the time I got the Daydream Medallion stamp set and the matching framelits, I thought about making a card cut out with of one of the framelits.  It's a little tricky with the shape I used, as I discovered, due to the pointed ends, but it will be something to play around.

How fun is that?  Love that framelit shape!  I stamped the Daydream Medallion in Primrose Petals, cut it out and then layered the greeting in the midst of it.  The card base behind the front piece was created by taking a 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece of Whisper White card stock folded in half and cut out with the same framelit, making sure that a small part of the fold was just inside the framelit.

The sentiment was stamped in Lucky Limeade, adhered to a larger circle of More Amour dp, then a Primrose Petals Windows Collection Framelit.  A piece of Lucky Limeade Ruffled ribbon was taped to the back and the entire thing popped up with SU Dimensionals.  Basic Pearls finished things off.

I didn't want to leave the interior blank so I used a circle die and circle punch to create a place for a short greeting.  The sweet little flower from Collage Curios was added as a little decoration.  

I've made this card today for the color challenge at Dynamic Duos, which is to use a dark pink such as Primrose Petals and any other color of ones choice, which in my case is Lucky Limeade.

It's also for the fun Tic Tac Toe challenge at Paper Players, where I chose the Pink & Green, Birthday and Pearls row.

Thanks for dropping by today!
