Moonflower


My friend StampOwl helped me name this card. The reason for the name? Well, every Monday, a small group of friends from SCS and I do a challenge that is arranged a month ahead of time. Every Second Monday, we choose a unique SCS name, and make a card that represents that name, and then we mail it to that person. This week we chose............*Papermoon* (Shelly). For this card we could only use cardstock in the gray family. NO BLACK. White was allowed though. And there had to be a moon shape somewhere on the card. I have Half moons on the ends of the ribbon.

To make this 5" x 6" card, I did the following: Stamped the SU fabulous flower 3 times on bazzill gray CS, cut out three layers, edged the petals with gunmetal stickles, and layered with scotch dimensional tape. The center of the flower is Crystal Pearl Art Accentz beads. I attached them with crystal lacquer.

The background is a wonderful striped background stamp by Cornish Heritage Farms. I rounded the corners and sewed around it with white thread. I then added the ribbon, and half circles with a silver brad. After that I added the next panel and mounted the flower and adornit gems. Oops, forgot to add that I added the *friendship* sentiment by Lizzie Anne Designs.

All the edges are ink distressed with Stampin' Up Basic gray ink.

Accessories - Adornit gem stickers, Art Accentz, Gunmetal Stickles, corner rounder punch, sewing machine, brads, hot glue, scotch dimensional tape
