ID: MC Jan/12 - Cone Flower - Love card
5"w x 6.5"h

Created: January 29 2012

I've made cone flowers before but I don't think I made them with a double fold before. I like the look of them.

And I'm using a quote stamp from Quietfire Design..

I stamped the back of a bright pink metallic paper (from my Paper Roots gift wrap stash) with a polka dot stamp (Glitz if Now "Distressing" set) and Versafine Majestic Purple then embossed them with Baby Pink embossing powder. Die cut with Spellbinders smallest Scalloped Circle, scored and folded into cone shapes. Adhered the points onto another small 1" circle. Die cut the Spellbinders "Lotus" from bright pink cardstock, applied Perfect Medium and embossed with Old Island "Crystal" embossing powder. Adhered my cone flower. Die cut the small center from the same pink cardstock and die set, adhered to center of flower. Adhered a large white half pearl and added pink Stickles around it.

The main card is white, then a layer of the bright pink, then a layer of a white metallic floral embossed pattern paper (Paper Roots).

A white diamond point picot edge lace trim on the left side. Adhered a silver/pink patterned metallic paper onto white cardstock, then die cut the border with Spellbinders Lacy Doily Accents. Adhered on top of the white lace. Then adhered a pink picot edged ribbon on top of the others. Added faux stitching using Rangers white Enamel Accents.

Stamped my quote with Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Punched out with a E Imagination tag punch, sponged around the edges with Distress and a dirty red sponge. Punched out the border (EK Success "Scroll & Heart") around the punched out tag to create a frame, then adhered the tag back into the opening. Attached it to my lotus die cut with a large silver staple. Added some rhinestones around the edges of the tag.

Colored some mini black safety pins with a Krylon silver leafing pen, then attached my charms - a dragonfly, heart and a rose bud.

Stamped the letters for the word "Love" using Just Rite alphabet stamps "Times Roman" sponged some red around them and punched them out with a 1/2" circle punch. Adhered them to card with 3D foam squares.

Adhered my lotus/cone flower and tag to card.
