A Gorgeous Cased Card

Don't you just love a quiet Saturday morning when everyone is asleep, and the house is so peaceful that you can get into a happy, creative mode? That's how my morning is. I started this morning with my coffee, some delicious smelling candles, Facebook and my Favorite Blogs. I was so inspired by this gorgeous card on Aaron's blog that I had to re-create and share it with you. I didn't have the exact tag that she used, so I used the one from the "Party Pennants" stamp set. The leaves are made from a former stamp of the month called "Something Splendid." To make the paper flowers, I punched 4 different sizes of circles out of Tulip, Creme Brulee and Juniper cardstock and distressed the edges. I have an edge distresser, but found it easier to use the inside edge of my small scissors. I then sponged the edges with Desert Sand ink and scrunched them inward. They are held together with Glue Dots. The dots on the inside flowers are Mocha Opaques Adhesive Gems. The patterned paper is from the Jingle paper pack. Have a blessed afternoon and if you haven't already, I hope you find time to get into your happy, creative mode.
