Often I get asked where I get my inspiration from. There are several answers to that question. However for today's Pop of Petals Wreath Panel card, the inspiration came directly from Stampin' Up!.
Four times a year, Stampin' Up! demonstrators receive a Stampin' Success magazine filled with creative and business inspiration. I fold over the corners of the pages that inspire me and CASE those projects for my classes and clubs. Why not, right? I appreciate that Stampin' Up! provides samples for us to copy. Just a little something to make my "job" easier.
Today's card is an example of a Stampin' Success project, that I used for my Stamping Club Class last month. I left most everything the same with the exception of the greeting. Other changes I made, the white piece opens (like a "mini card"), with a 1/4 sheet card base panel. (Yes - I like panel cards!)
How'd She DO That? tips for Pop of Petals Wreath Panel card:
- Stamps: Pop of Petals, Itty Bitty Birthdays
- Soft Sea Foam (4-1/4 x 5-1/2" card base and 5/8" x 4" sentiment)
- Whisper White (3-1/2" x 5-1/2" score at 4-1/4", and 4-1/2" x 1-1/2" for border punch)
- Petal Pink (scraps for flowers)
