JAI #66 - Just Add A Flower {for Mum's Day}

Believe it or not, this weeks challenge was a real challenge for me.  I tend to add a flower or 2 to most of my creations, so this week I really wanted to try something different.
There are 3 firsts for me in this card, I've never made a gate fold card, never had a go at double embossing and decided to try to make a chrysanthemum - the 'symbolic' flower for Mother's Day.

All Supplies are Stampin' Up!
Card Stock:   Early Espresso, Old Olive, Whisper White
DSP:              Patterns Stack - Brights in Rich Razzleberry
Ink Pads:      Old Olive, Sahara Sand, Versamark
Ribbon:         Old Olive Taffeta Ribbon
Stamp Set:    Well Scripted
Big Shot:       Lots Of Tags, Blossom Party, Elegant Bouquet
Other:           White Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Brayer, Sponge


  1. A very impressive flower for your gate fold card.

  2. Your chrysanthemum is stunning and I love the double embossing too! Very pretty card. Thanks for playing at JAI.
