Welcome to The Creativity Cave!! Thank you so much for joining me on The Creation Station Blog Hop! You've just come from Holly's blog and I am thrilled to have you here! I am so excited for the brand new Occasions Catalog! It starts just days from now and I couldn't be more inspired with the offerings this time around!
My absolute favorite thing in the Occasions Catalog is for sure Botanical Blossoms! The set combined with the coordinating framelits are like a little match made in heaven!
I was inspired to make this card based on an ADORABLE little black and white ceramic pitcher from the Target Dollar Spot:
I thought it would be awesome to add some brightly colored flowers to a black and white striped card base. I just love how it turned out!
To create the background, I took a 5 1/4x 4 piece of white and black. I cut the black piece in 3/4" strips all the way down. I glued every other one on top of the white piece, using the others as a guide for spacing.
I then cut several of the flowers in bright colors: Melon Mambo, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Watermelon wonder, Pink Pirouette and the centers are Basic Black. I added leaves in Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive (inked with old olive).
This shot with the sun really shows off the happy colors of this card!! The "hello" is from the Greetings Thinlits (cut in Gold Foil Paper). I am absolutely in love with this card and this set--I am anxious to play with different color combinations on top of the black and white stripes. I hope you liked my card as much as I did! :)
