PKS Challenge #10 Faux Stitching

This week's Peachy Keen challenge is to create a card using faux stitching.  I instantly thought about the super cute In Stitches face stamp set.  The sweet little greeting from Vivienne and Friends goes perfectly with the stitches.  And of course, this little flower wouldn't be complete without an Action Wobble on his head.  Check out the instructions to make this card below the photo.  Check out the other fantastic projects from the design team HERE.


Instructions:
Punch 5 flowers with Blossom punch.  Stack flowers and pierce hole in center.  Put a mini brad in the center and then turn the flowers to stagger the petals.  Fluff the petals forward to create some depth.  

Stamp the face on a So Saffron 1-1/4" Circle punch.  Color the nose with riding hood red.  Add regal rose to cheeks and whites to eyes with unibal white gel pen.  Sponge edges of circle with more mustard ink.  Attach face with dimensionals.  Cut a strip of green print paper 1/4" x 4".  Punch 2 wings from Bird Builder.  Sponge edges with old live ink.

Cut the following layers for card:
8-1/2" x 5-1/2" Ruby Red or Riding Hood Red for base, folded in half
4" x 5-1/4" floral print (Colorbok Flea Market papers)
4-3/8" x 2-1/2" very vanilla
4-1/4" x 2-3/8" doily print (Colorbok Flea Market papers)
4" x 1-1/2" green print (Colorbok Flea Market papers)
1" x 4" Soft Sky, punch one edge with Scallop Border punch

Layer doily print on very vanilla and draw stitches around outer edge with unibal white gel pen.  Layer green print over soft sky scallop border. Tie a fork bow in 5/8" vanilla satin ribbon and glue tails to back.  Draw stitches along top and bottom with gel pen.  Attach floral print onto card base and attach green print piece onto card.  Attach doily print piece with dimensionals.  Stamp greeting in lower corner.  Glue flower stem on diagonally.  Attach leaves with dimensionals.  Attach flower head with action wobble spring.
