Dotty Centre Flower from Chocolate Baroque

Good morning my lovelies. I got all crossoppled with my posting dates over on the Chocolate Baroque DT blog but anyway here's a little  project that would make an ideal stocking filler made using the beautiful Dotty Centre Flowerhead stamp from Chocolate Baroque.

I stamped the Flower on heat resistant acetate using Versamark ink and embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. I cut the flower out and snipped in between the petals before bending each petal up a little. I stamped the center of the flower again on a scrap of my background card, embossed with Gold Embossing Powder and then cut otu the centre and layered it up over the acetate flower. This enables you to glue the flower onto your projects without seeing the glue.

It was at this point that I decided to make a post it holder as popped the flower to dry on top of some post it notes and realised it was a perfect size. I didn't bother to measure anything, just used the pad of post-its to score a strip of white linen card to fit.

I cut some scraps from my stash of inky backgrounds to cover the white linen card, edging each piece with a gold Krylon pen. I attached the pieces of background to the linen card, trapping a scrap of ribbon at each end of the inside to create a fastener.

I stuck the flower to the top of my little project and to finish off I added some dots of faux pearls to the flower.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Artistic Inspirations: anything goes with a twist of feminine
Crafting for all seasons: embossing
Creative Fingers: Anything goes
In the pink: fancy folds
Karleigh Sue Challenge: one for the girls
Not just cards: anything goes
