Double Challenge

It's a double challenge at Heart 2 Heart Challenges and Color My Heart Colour Dare this week - to use black white and red in your project.  The red can be cranberry, pomegranate or ruby.

I love this floating flower card which was inspired by France Martin.

I cut the flowers in all three reds, using the Springtime Wishes thin cuts.  I didn't know how many flowers I would use and just cut a bunch.  I stamped in black using the co-ordinating Springtime Wishes stamp set.

The black and white paper is from For Always a retired paper package that I'm still hoarding scraps from.
This is what the card looks like when opened.  It's hard to show in a photo how 3-D and full this card is.  So much fun to layer up the flowers.

Now I hope I haven't disqualified myself, but I had to add leaves to my flowers which were cut from fern cardstock and again stamped in black.

I used some pearls for the centre of my flowers and was really pleased with how this turned out.

I hope you'll give this type of card a try - it is a standard 4 1/4" X 5 1/2 when folded and fits in an A2 envelope.




  1. This is absolutely STUNNING! And made using paper from my favourite paper pack of all time (For Always). This is so beautiful - the lucky recipient will be at a loss for words, I'm sure. WOWZA! What a gorgeous card. Thanks for sharing your awesome talent with us at H2H!
