Cross My Heart Fun Flower Card

If you read my posts in your email, you may have noticed this afternoon that first picture of my For the Birds Thank You card was different than most of the rest.  Well, I don’t know how it happened put I accidently selected the wrong photo when I wrote it up, but it’s been corrected now.  I didn’t want you to lose any sleep over it!  Haha.

The adorable butterflies in the card above are from the Stampin’ Up! Cross My Heart stamp set from the new Spring catalog.  That little butterfly stamp is the reason I bought that set!  I fell in love.

The flower is the star of the show here.  I cut two sets of flowers from the Tea for Two Designer Series Paper, Big Shot Die-cutting Machine and the Fun Flower Bigz Die.  I then spritzed them with water, crumbled, stacked and assembled with a brad in the middle to hold it all together.  After putting it all together I sprayed it with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz.  Can you see the shine?

A little Linen Thread bow through the button and then I glued it to the top of the brad with Crystal Effects.  With all the water and the shimmer, a glue dot was just not going to cut it, but Crystal Effects is like super glue.

The button on the flower is from the Sale-A-Bration Sycamore Street ribbon and button pack, which will be available FREE with a qualifying order tomorrow!  The button is actually Tangerine Tango, and the paper and ink are actually Calypso Coral, so they are not the same color, but in person they blend and look great together.  However, in the pictures, not so much.  Darn.
