Create with Friends – Floral Square Hello

Delivery came today…and I just had to play with some of my new goodies!

I chose to use the Paper Craft Crew Sketch (#426) and the Stampin’ Through the Catalog stamp choice:  Create with Friends.

A lot of fun patterns in the new Hostess offering: Pattern Play Designer Series Paper and could not resist the fun bright floral pattern.

And this is the result:



  • I chose the floral pattern paper sheet from the new Hostess offering, Pattern Party Designer Series Paper.  I cut two (½” x 12”) strips and fit them diagonally across the background panel (4⅛” x 5⅜”) with temporary adhesive.  The sentiment, Hello, from the Create with Friends stamp set was stamped multiple times in a linear pattern between the two strips in Granny Apple Green ink.  The pattern strips were removed and the panel was dry-embossed with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  Once embossed the floral strips were permanently adhered.
  • The Floral Die Cuts in the new Floral Squares Dies are so cute.  I chose the Posy square and die-cut it twice.  Once in Granny Apple Green and again in Bumble Bee cardstock.  I cut away the Posy from the Bumble Bee square to create a frame.  There are matching floral die-cuts for the different flowers.  I die-cut the Posy from a scrap of Flirty Flamingo cardstock.  The Posy was adhered over the matching Granny Apple Green one and the Bumble Bee frame was adhered over the Granny Apple frame.
  • I chose to frame the Floral Square Die piece with a Basic White cardstock Circle (2⅝”) die-cut with one of the Layering Circle Dies.  This was so that the diagonal strips would not show through the open frame.   The Circle was dry-embossed with the Meadow Moments Embossing Folder to add a little texture and carry-forward the floral motif.  To differentiate the white on white, the Circle was sponged with Coastal Cabana ink using a Sponge Dauber.

I opted for a Basic White card base (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) to keep the card light and breezy.  The background panel was adhered and the Focal image was popped up with Dimensionals completing the sketch.

Such a cute card! Looking forward to play with more of the items that I unpacked today.
