Mr Cardmaker Puts it Into Reverse

Time again to throw my hat CARD in for the Papertrey Ink Make It Monday challenge. 

This week's challenge is #325 Reverse Florals. This basically means your florals are white or mostly white, and the emphasis goes to the leaves and other greenery.

I made this--

I just got these fabulous Floral Squares dies from Pinkfresh Studio, and I wanted to use them-well, at least one... I did manage to use two PTI sets in my card--Funky Florals for the sentiment, and Rosie Posie for my stamped/diecut leaves. I also snuck some small leaf diecuts from Spellbinders in there, too..

When I was doing the inlay of the white frame and yellow surrounding pieces, I was a bit worried about all the yellow, since we were charged with keeping our flowers white. 
However, I quieted my worries by popping up some extra diecut petals on my flower. Mischief  managed!

I also have a pretty piece of floral print vellum in there as one of the layers, but the design didn't really photograph. Wop, wop...

Another view, showing off more of the dimension--

That YELLOW cardstock from Fun Stampers' Journey is such a juicy shade. Totally love it! It sort of reads a bit orange here, but it really is YELLOW. Or should I say yell-OW!! (oh, the puns...)

Now I'm off to link up my project, before I totally forget AGAIN...

Go make something!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
All Best--


  1. What company is the sentiment stamp from? I really like that. Your card is happy and with all the layers it bursts just like the sentiment. Good choice.

    1. It's PTI! Funky Florals.
      Thanks so much for stopping by!

  2. So very beautiful with those bright summery colors.

  3. Oh my good golly, Richard... fabulous! Innovative to pop out your sweet white flower. And all those layers? Gorgeous! So prepare to be cased!

  4. I absolutely love your card! So modern and artsy. That die from Pink Fresh is awesome.

  5. How did I miss this?! I love this card, Rich - it's fantastic!!!!! I want to try - I wonder what floral die cuts I've got that I can use? Hmmm. Aren't yellow colors difficult? Too pale, too bright, too orange, too green, I dunno - is there a perfect one ? I wish I could see your yellow in person! I think I'll buy some from Fun Stampers Journey! Hugs!


Your comments mean so much. Thanks for taking the time!
