Make and Take #2 for the virtual open house

The second make and take tonight that we're doing on the virtual open house on Scrapping with Heart is this cute card using the Hooray Bouquet set, it's awesome! I also used the Wings paper which is no longer available from Close to my Heart but I have a few packs to sell out of my own stock if you HAVE to have it.

Cut your vineyard berry paper 4 1/2 by 4 1/2. I just love this size, can't you tell? Distress with vineyard berry ink and then cut a piece of juniper cardstock 4 1/4 by 4 1/4. Dry emboss lines in it with your dry embossing tool and your trimmer and sand them to make the white core show. Glue to vineyard berry cardstock.

Excuse the blurry pictures coming up. Cut patterned paper 2 inches by 4 1/2 and glue across the bottom after you distress it. Cut a piece of black cardstock 1 1/2 by 4 1/2 and glue on the pattern paper.

Cut a piece of colonial white cardstock 2 by 3 inches and distress. Cut a piece of vineyard berry 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 and distress. Attach the white to the vineyard berry cardstock. Stamp "you make me smile" on lower right of card and attach piece to right side of card as shown.

Stamp some of the cool flowers from this stamp set on colonial white paper using juniper and vineyard berry ink. Feel free to roll the edges of the juniper pieces in the vineyard berry ink to make it pop.

Cut them out and layer, distressing as needed.

Add completed piece to card as shown. Stamp another smaller flower on the upper right of the colonial white piece, add brad in the center. "Fluff" up the center of the flower so that it's 3 - d (everything these days is 3-d, isn't it)? Attach the card to a piece of colonial white cardstock that you've cut 9 by 4 1/2 and folded and you're done!!
