These cards are just little 3″ x 3″ ones! Decorating them is so much fun because you only have a little area to work with! I used my Rich Razzleberry Blendabilities for the background on the right and left! Starting with the lightest color, move back and forth like you are making a splotch of color. You will go about half way across the 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″ piece of cardstock. Then taking the darkest color and start from the top coming down to the middle. Finally with the medium color blend in the middle on top of the dark and light colors. This will give you a nice ombre look fading from light to dark. Then you will layer that onto a piece of Rich Razzleberry measuring 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ and then onto the card base of 3″ x 6″ (folded in half). I stamped the greetings from A Dozen Thoughts with my Memento Pad. I punched a few flowers from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack our of the Sweet Taffy Designer Series Paper.
For the middle card, I started with my Melon Mambo base (3″ x 6″) and layered Rich Razzleberry (2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″) and then Sweet Taffy Designer Series Paper (2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″). For the greeting, I stamped on a piece of 3/4″ x 2-1/4″ Whisper White Cardstock with Memento and the A Dozen Thoughts Stamp Set. For the banner tips, I cut straight down in the middle and then from both corners diagonally to that center cut. This helps you get even tips and not have one longer. For the flower, I stamped the flower from the Flower Shop Stamp Set onto Vellum, punched it out with the Pansy Punch and colored the back side with my Rich Razzleberry Blendabilities! I used the darkest and lightest marker! I didn’t blend as much as I usually do but instead just did certain petals light and others dark. I attached it to my card with a Stampin’ Dimensional and then added a Pearl which I also colored with my Blendabilites! I love how you can color so many different materials with your blendabilities.
