Wplus9 Feb./Mar. Release: Group Post

Saturday, February 4, 2012

Howdy, and welcome to our Wplus9 Design February/March Release Group Post!  I'm bringing you all a trio of minis, boasting Folkart Florals and its coordinating, Folkart Florals die today.
What do you say we get a little up close and personal?
I started this card by distressing the edges of the 3" x 3-1/2", Crumb Cake, cardstock, card face with Tea Dye and Antique Linen inks and spritzing it with Crumb Cake and Chocolate Chip inks, before stamping the "Friends like you are very few, I'm so glad I found you." sentiment in Basic Black ink.
I then cut four, Whisper White, cardstock squares and ink distressed their edges, before adhering them, in a grid pattern, above the stamped sentiment.  Moving clockwise, from the top left corner to the bottom left corner, the first square was stamped, in Pool Party ink, with the large, flower image.  Its center was then dressed up with a Build-a-Brad, whose center boasts a smaller, stamped, in Daffodil Delight ink, flower image.  The second square was stamped, in Lucky Limeade ink, with the small, leaf image and glittered.  The third was dressed up with the smallest, die cut, using the Folkart Florals die, from Coral Calypso cardstock, bird, which was embellished with a pearl eye and adhered, in its prepped square, with foam tape.  And finally, the fourth was stamped, in Wisteria Wonder ink, with the bird house image, which was embellished with a little, hemp twine bow.
That's it, for this round, folks!  Thank you so much for visiting me and for all your super sweet comments throughout this release!  I'm absolutely giddy glad that you like what you see!  Now, before you're off, to the Wplus9 Design Online Store, to get these goodies while they're hot, one last time, please don't forget to stop by the rest of the teams' blogs to see what they've created today, just for your viewing pleasure.  Until next time, be blessed!  Hugs!
