Flowerfall Card

The Inspiration
Hello PMB peeps, this is Michelle here today. I was hanging out with my niece and really liked the design on her shirt. There were multi-colored hearts stitched in vertical columns. I thought that would be a good inspiration piece. This is the second project I've made based on one of her shirts, you can see the first project here. If you like cards with a fun and whimsical look, then baby clothes are the perfect source for design inspiration, and there will be no problems with scraplifting.

The Reveal
The uniform hearts from the shirt became assorted sized flowers, which were Lawn Fawn stamps that were stamped onto the She Art paper pack. I hand-cut the three larger flowers, and to save time, I used a circle punch on the medium flowers, and a hole punch for the small flowers. 

I machine stitched through the flowers in a vertical column and spread out the sentiment stamp to fit under each column. Hand drawn stitching lines would also be a quicker option. I finished by rounding one corner of the card, distressing the edge and adding a hint of glitter with a glitter pen on the outline of the flowers. It turned out to be a CAS card. 

I named this design flowerfall, like in a cascading waterfall. I hope you can see design inspiration all around you.
