Flower and Field Many Mates Congratulations Card

 Hi Everyone,

I am taking part in a Blog Hop today with the Crafty Collaborators and the challenge is the sketch above. I love following sketch challenges, it gives you so much scope to use anything you like.  Let me show you how I interpreted the challenge.


1 piece of basic black card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4" and a scrap for the sentiment
1 piece of basic white 3 7/8" x 5 5/8"
1 piece of Flower and Field dsp 4" x 5 3/4" and scraps for the decoration
Scraps of flirty flamingo card
2" circle punch
2 1/4" circle punch
White embossing powder
Versamark ink
Flirty flamingo ink
Heat Tool
Confetti Flowers Border Punch
Detailed Trio punch
Paper snips
Basic rhinestones
Grey granite shimmer ribbon
Multipurpose adhesive
Bone Folder
Simply scored


On the long side score the black card at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish to make the card base.

Punch out a 2 1/4" circle from the designer series paper (I have used the reverse side of the floral paper). Also cut a small strip 1 1/2" square from the same dsp and round two corners (see picture).  Cut two strips of flirty flamingo card 1/2" x 3".

Adhere the 1 1/2" square (with the rounded ends facing towards the centre of the card) about 1/2" down from the top of the dsp (see picture).  Cut a banner in one end of one of the strips of flirty flamingo and adhere to the dsp as shown in the picture.  Add a piece of ribbon (banner the end of that too), secure with a glue dot at the banner end and with sticky tape to the reverse side of the dsp.  

Add a piece of ribbon to the other strip of flirty flamingo and add to the dsp layer about 1 1/2" from the bottom.

Punch a 2" circle from basic black card and heat emboss the sentiment in white across the centre of it.  Adhere the two circles together and then add to the dsp layer, over the strip of flirty flamingo, so that they slightly overhang the edge and trim off the excess.

Adhere the dsp layer to the card front.

Punch out some flowers with the confetti flower punch and dot them about on the sentiment layer and the tag piece at the top and anywhere else that you would like.  Add rhinestones to the centre of the flowers.

Stamp a sentiment on the white layer for the inside and add a 1/2" strip of the dsp if you have one left over, adhere to the inside of the card.

I hope that you like my card, why don't you give this sketch layout a try? Please hop through the rest of the contributions below, you are sure to find lots of inspiration from very talented crafters.
