Hugs & Kisses and a Fond Farewell

Hi friends.  Bonnie here again from Make Time to Craft.  This is my last post as guest designer for January and it's time to say good-bye.  It was terrific stopping in to share some projects with you this month.  I just love working with Cheery Lynn Designs dies.

I started with a 5-1/2" brown square card base for this card topped with a medium pink, light pink and brown layer - each just a little smaller than the previous one.  I love layers!  Each of my smaller squares were created with the inner die from the Royal Scandinavian Doily.  I cut a 2-1/4" square of ivory cardstock and centered the die and cut.  I then layered that on brown and pink cardstock squares and each square is topped with a pretty shasta daisy flower.  You will need four of these.

  I cut three of the larger flower layers and one of the middle size for each flower - two of the large in light pink and one large and one medium in medium pink.  I lightly inked the petal edges with a tan ink and I cupped each petal up around my needle tool before assembling.  Add a half pearl for the flower center and then attach two leaves to the back of each flower and adhere to your card.

I finished off the card with a dainty little double-loop bow made on my Bow-it-All V2.0 using brown shimmer satin ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon and a sweet little sentiment at the bottom.
