Fabulous Flowers

In honor of our 36th wedding anniversary, this large bouquet (three feet high and nearly as wide across) graced the Worship Center at our church this morning.

The flowers were lovely and we wanted to share their beauty with others. So we took the bouquet and some vases to my eldest daughter's house this afternoon and made several bouquets for her to take to school tomorrow. Mikelle is a kindergarten teacher who appreciates the often unsung efforts of the school staff, so administrative and secretarial staff will be the recipients of these recycled posies.

Of course, we had to give the bouquets that Stampin' Up! flair.

We added some cards and ribbon and these babies are ready to go.

The simple cards were made using 3 x 3 Whisper White cards, the new Oval All stamp set and Scallop Oval punch from the Occasions mini catalog. A little stamping, punching and embellishing with a white gel pen later…voila!

FlowerCardCU This was a spur-of-the-moment project. I love having a variety of creative materials on hand to make what I need in the moment.

If you don't have an Occasions mini catalog, I'd be happy to send you one. Just give me a call or send an email and I'll get one right out to you.

  1. Oh! large bouquet (three feet high and nearly as wide across) that was really great. Wish I can receive that kind of bouquet at home, well actually if I receive that kind of bouquet I don’t know where I’m going to put it. Hahahaha….
