Two Pink Flower Cards

I have two cards to share with you today - both using the same flower from Martha Stewart.  I HAVE to start using up some of my supplies!

This first one was done for the Featured Stamper on SplitCoastStampers.  This week's FS is "whoistracy."  I chose this card to case.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

This second one is just a simple card, and a layout I've used several times.  I embossed the circles with a small Cuttlebug folder and added the flowers.  The matting is the same as the first card - Pretty in Pink from Stampin' up!.  The sentiment is again from PTI's Birthday Basics.

For those who asked, I'll try to explain how I emboss with the small folders and don't get the lines from the edges of the folder.  I took some heavy cereal box cardboard and cut four layers and glued them together.  They are smaller than the folder.  It is about 3/16 of an inch thick.  I place it on top of the folder, making sure that it does not hang over the edge of the folder.  Then I run it through my BIGkick.  You'd have to experiment with your "sandwich," but I use Tab One and one clear plate.  That's what works for me.  I hope that helps!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Both of your cards are beautiful. I love the way that you are able to make white cards with just a dash of color and they always come out gorgeous. Stay warm Lynette.
