Simple Flower Embosslit and Cute by the Inch
This card uses two retiring products: the hostess set Cute by the Inch and the Simple Flower embosslit. Both the Simple Flower embosslit and the Flower Burst embosslit are great because they cut and emboss the flower in one pass through the Big Shot. It's quick, it's easy and it looks great! Can't beat that.
The colors are Night of Navy and Crushed Curry. The Crushed Curry flowers were made with the Simple Flower embosslit. The Night of Navy flower was made with the scallop punch. I just cut in towards the center at each scallop. Just be careful not to go too far or your petal will come off. The center was made with the circle from the Itty Bitty Shapes punch pack.
The stamped image was punched out using the Postage Stamp punch from the Summer Mini catalog. It fits perfectly. If you aren't going to qualify for this hostess set by the end of the month (contact me if you want to try), the stamp set Pretty Postage (also from the Summer Mini) was designed to coordinate with the punch. The layer under the stamped image is the smaller scallop square from the Scallop Squares Duo die.
The background is Whisper White, which means in real life it's as bright (or brighter) as my watermark. I had a hard time getting a good photo, but you get the idea.
