Boho Flower cu 07063
A big Congrats to Dena, the newest Featured Stamper (FS444) on Splitcoast! Love her style & I chose THIS to case. I kept the turquoise bg and layout but I used different images, added embossing & a greeting die cut.

For my card, I started by stamping the Boho Paisley Bg w/ black Distress ink and die cutting w/ one of the matting basics dies. I added a white fancy tag topper from the ODBD Recipe Cards & Tags die set & a narrow black mat. The flower was made by die cutting 3 white textured & 3 printed scallop shapes (from the same Recipe Cards die set), folding/wrinkling them then attaching them together w/ a brad. The center was made by die cutting 3 of the fringe borders (from ODBD Beautiful Borders dies), attaching the ends together, rolling them & curling some of the ends. I added 2 die cut leaves (from ODBD Zinnia & Leaves dies) & the die cut Love word. The turquoise bg was embossed only w/ the ODBD Boho Bg die. I will mention that I took a Copic marker (BG13) & colored over the lt blue areas of the designer paper so it would match my turquoise bg. 

Congrats again, Dena! Thanks so much for stopping by!

I wanted to try something a little different for my card…a divided panel using the greeting as the bridge. I’ve seen it done using die cut letters, so I gave it a try using a stamped greeting. It worked pretty just took a little fancy fussy cutting. The large panels were die cut then I determined how much to remove behind where the greeting would fit. After removing this piece, I attached the top & bottom sections to the greeting. The candy canes were also fussy cut & added to the die cut ovals.

The little ornament topper was die cut & I used Copics to color a circle for the ornament then punched it w/ a circle punch. 

These are the Copics I used.
