Lemon (Tart) Flower Soft!

Can you believe it? There is more to show from our shopping spree! Below is the Lemon Flower Soft- it matches Papertrey's Lemon Tart! Look at the teensy ribbon they sell as well! It must be meant to tie around bouquets of flowers; it is about 1/16 of an inch wide! Superb for baby cards!!


Shall I stop talking in exclamations??


I punched out 3 ducks from my new EK Success punch. I also got a border punch with bats aligned in both directions. You do need to be careful with the border punches- the dinosaurs are sooo cuute but can't be a card lower border since they are aligned wrong. Well, of course they could be added on as a different layer, but you know what I mean~ anyway, then I applied the Flower Soft, and colored the beaks with an orange fine tipped marker. What to do for eyes??? I don't have black seed beads...


SHOPPING TRIP!


Here's the Flower Soft close up. Scratchy feeling... holds static... clumpy... but oh my, lookie below!!



How's that for cuteness? Lemon Tart & Ripe Avocado paper along with one of Papertrey's polka dotted papers. SU's scallop border punch. Marvy punches, and SU's word window punch. just arrived from savvy stamps, brads are SU. Ripe Avocado Twill ribbon. Black seed beads from Michaels.


Be sure and look at it closely by clicking on the photo, I think you can see the Flower Soft better. Forgot to say the flourished circle is from Boxes, Bags and Tags and is stamped in Summer Sunrise.

What's missing? That teensy ribbon tied in a bow at the ducks neck~ just need the DD to come tie the bow for me, and we're all set!

Beth, your cards are so adorable! I love it when you update so I can see what you have created. I don't know if you have said how the flower soft holds up when mailed or put into an envelope? That is what is holding me back from getting some.

I doubt I will get into the flower soft stuff, as it seems to be a bit fiddly for me. But your use of it for the little duckies is superb!! If I was thinking of buying it, your cards would sell me on it!

Tara said...

Super, super cute! But as I said on the PTI forum, looks a bit too much like glitter to me and glitter is the equivalent to pure evil in my mind so I will leave the super super cute flower soft to you :-)
