What an Epic Posie!

Today I am going to share with you a card that Stampin' Up! posted.  I literally am just in a happy stamping heaven with it!  It's so bright and cheery and fun!  I love it and it really is not hard at all!  It was created by one of their Artisan Award Demonstrators, they share creations with us monthly on our demonstrator website ... just had to pass this beauty along!

Start with your card base and splatter some color to the base of the card with a marker and your Air Art Gun (retiring... sad I love this tool) and stamp a greeting in the top corner (could sub the HB greeting and use the one that comes in the Pop Up Posies kit).  Cut some strips of Designer Series Patterned Paper (aka DSP) in varying widths and fishtail cut the ends into little flags.  Line them up and over lap them a bit, secure with a strip of our new Washi tapes.  Add some twine and leave the tails long and curly.  The beautiful posie flower comes from our Pop Up Posies Kit, yep already cut out and ready to go, scrunch a few, layer and pierce the layers all at once, add in a button brad (yep, included in the kit too!) and mount to the card.  For a finishing touch, stamp a greeting on DSP and punch out with the ticket punch (or whatever you have handy!) and tuck it into a cute little clip and adhere to the card!

This is a one layer card made with scraps and a few other things ... simply adorable!  What do you think??
