Cajun Blossom

 I like the Cajun Craze and Merry Merlot color combination. Merry Merlot is part of the Stampin' Up! Neutrals family, so it should coordinate or complement all of the other colors. I think it does work here. What do you think?

   Blossoms in Bloom

   Cajun Craze A-2
   Merry Merlot 5-3/8 x 4-1/8, 5-1/4 x 4
   Whisper White 5-1/4 x 4 (2), Scrap
   Basic Black 5-1/4 x 4

   Cajun Craze
   Call Me Clover

   Die Cutting

   Many Layered Blossoms Dies
   Basic Rhinestone Jewels
   Fine Tip Glue Pen

First, I stamped the blossoms on a Whisper White panel using Cajun Craze. I did my best to center it.

I then took a panel of Merry Merlot and die cut the blossoms that have the shading of the petals.

Next, I die cut the outline of the blossoms on a Basic Black panel. I adhered this onto the Merry Merlot die cut using the Fine Tip Glue Pen. Next time, I will cut it on an adhesive sheet to make it easier to adhere.

I then took the Merry Merlot accents and Basic Black outline and aligned it on the Cajun Craze blossoms. They lined up fairly well. A flower and leaf are a bit off the edge, but I think it still works. I added dimensionals to attach it onto the Cajun Craze blossoms. It did move a bit once I set it down, but I think it works anyway.

I then took a left-over tag from a paper pumpkin kit and stamped my sentiment. This was attached using dimensionals.

Lastly, I put the card together. This Whisper White panel was adhered onto a Merry Merlot panel and then onto the Cajun Craze card base. The other Whisper White panel is for the inside of the card. The scrap of Whisper White is for the sentiment, in case you do not have any left-over tags.

  1. Wow what a great die cut and super colors you used for the layers too.

  2. I'm not sure Merry Merlot is a neutral. Maybe SU! needed to round out the neutrals and chose this color to do it. Who knows...

    I do like your card, though.
