Honoring Queen Nancy (QFTD67)
Our queen this week is nwilliams6. It took me two days to decide which card I wanted to CASE! I told my daughter that I wanted to CASE this card, and she said, "You want to make a card with a snowman on it???" I told her I wanted to make a white on white card, but instead of drawing a frame (because I'm too shaky today) I wanted to use a mat for a frame, and instead of stamping an image, I wanted to use punched things like stars, hearts or flowers. She was the one who suggested using the black mat and brightly colored flowers. We got out a bunch of flower punches, and she got out the scrap basket and went to work punching out flowers. This is what we came up with. I used the "Swirls & Curls Verses" hostess set for the sentiment, coloring the tiny flowers with markers. We used the Boho Blossoms Punch, Flower Trio Punch, Four Petal Flower Punch from the Punch Pack and a Martha Stewart Punch for the leaves. I used a Flower Brad in the center of the largest flower and the White Gel Pen for the centers of all the smaller flowers. Nancy puts "PT:" and a number to indicate how many times she used punches at the end of her descriptions. My "PT" is 15! Everything used to make this card except for the Martha Stewart Leaf Punch came from Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by!
