DIY Embellishment Challenge



I created this Get-Well card for the
DIY Embellishments Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.



     I almost always make my own embellishments for my cards. I find that to be the funnest part of creating a card. I made the flower on this card using five different flower punches varying in size and type.  I normally use 3-5 different colors to make flowers like this, but I found this wonderful watercolor cardstock in DCWV's Painted Petal Stack. Because there was such color variation on each sheet, I used only aqua and boysenberry colors. I punched each layer of my flower from a different part of each sheet which gave me a wide variety of color. I put all the layers together with a aqua brad. I used the same aqua cardstock for the tag, heat-embossing the sentiment (Studio G) in boysenberry pigment by Color Box. The boysenberry is a limited edition color. I suggest getting a pad before they are retired. It is a beautiful color.

Do you make your own embellishments? You can respond to the challenge here:
