Not just good, but great!


I love the new set Golden Oldies from the new Occasions Mini Catalogue. It is just so much fun! For today’s card, I was inspired by the challenge on Our Creative Corner. What a great sketch!

So, I knew I wanted to use this awesome dude but I really wanted to use my Pink Flamingo DSP – what was I going to do? 

I started with a Chocolate Chip card base and layered it with Creamy Caramel. I then added a piece of Pink Flamingo DSP, the one with the large Summer Sun flowers. I just LOVE it!

Then, according to the sketch, I started on the vertical panel. I stamped the image from Golden Oldies in Jet Black StazOn and watercoloured most of him. I stamped him again on the smaller flower paper from the Pink Flamingo DSP pack and cut it out so he has a hawaiian shirt – fun huh?

I cut out a large Chocolate Chip circle using my Scissor Circle Plus cutter and faux stitched around it with my white gel pen.

One set that I really like with Golden Oldies is Smarty Pants. I stamped a saying from that set in Chocolate Chip on some Confetti White cardstock and layered it on some Creamy Caramel.

The flower is embossed with white embossing powder and is from Fifth Avenue Floral. In the centre, I added a build a brad with a piece of the same paper that I used on the shirt.

So, not your typical card as it is masculine with flowers but I think it is pretty darn cool! 

Thanks for stopping by today!
