Timeless Tuesday 133 ~ Guest Designer

Howdy all! Happy Tuesday! It's time to join the Flourishes team for one last time this month for another fabulous Timeless Tuesday challenge.

This week we have a fabulous BINGO inspired challenge brought to you by the talented Silke. For this challenge, using the same rules as the game Bingo, pick ANY 3 squares in a row (across, diagonal or down) and create a project using those 3 items.

Orange Fern

Supplies: cream cardstock, stamps, Flourishes; orange cardstock, Bazzill; ink, Stampin' Up!; die cut shapes, Spellbinders; distressing tool, Tonic; other, gold ribbon.

For my card this week, I chose to use the outside row going down:
I started off die cutting my circular cardstock pieces out of Flourishes Classic Ivory Cardstock. I left my Spellbinder's circle die on my central circle of ivory cardstock and masked off one portion of the circle using a simple piece of Post-It note paper and then stamped and inked my fern images from the "Ferns & Fiddles" stamp set.

I distress my stamped circle and then matted it with a simple distressed scalloped circle of orange cardstock and then placed that image right over top of my lace ornate card base.

A simple and EASY card to create!
