Meadow Dies for #FMS548

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is inspired by Jacquie's Sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches.  And by two plants I love to see growing together - Chicory and Queen Anne's Lace.  At this time of year I see them along the roadsides and farmers fields and I'm reminded of our fields around our Apple Orchard when I was a child.  I think Orchid Oasis looks like the blue of the Chicory plant.  Check out my iStock photo below and see what you think :)

Please click on either my card or this link, Freshly Made Sketches to visit the #548 Challenge, and enjoy the inspiration.

Assembly & Trix

*  I love using die cuts to create texture.  ***Trix, die cut the Meadow Dies, #155852 stems from Basic White cardstock and adhere to a 4 x 5 1/4 Basic White cardstock layer with glue.  Then adhere to a Thick Basic White card base.

*  Emboss a 2 x 5 1/4 strip of Orchid Oasis with a White Queen Anne's Lace stem, #152607 - this stamp set retired last year, but I had to bring it back for this card memory of mine.  Alternately use the flax flower stem from the coordinating Quiet Meadow Stamp Set, #155082.

*  Embellish with a White Bakers Twine, #155475 and the embossed sentiment from the stamp set.  Add in the fabulous New 2022 - 2024 In Color™ Matte Decorative Dots, #159186 for a little bit of somethin' while keeping the card clean & simple.

  1. It's so pretty that you built a scene in the vertical strip - along with the embossing on the edge! Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
