I really like the pattern of the flowers in the Greenhouse Gala DSP, but you really have to be careful how you use a large pattern like that or it detracts from the focal point. To balance that effect, I used a bold image for my focal point and added some additional more solid color DSP (from the same pack) to add some separation. I think it works here. I stamped my image in Craft White ink on a piece of Daffodil Delight and again on a piece of Pumpkin Pie. I embossed both of them with white embossing powder. As you can see, I cut the top half off of the Daffodil Delight one and layered it over the Pumpkin Pie. Why not the reverse you ask. 1. The words needed to stand out more. 2. The flowers on the DSP are Daffodil and not Pumpkin. For the center of the flower, I carefully out out the center of the Pumpkin layer that I embossed before layering the Daffodil Delight piece on top of it. That way I didn't need to emboss it 3 times. (layered it with a dimensional as well) And besides, no one will ever know, right. Well, except for now you all know. :-) I did use dimensionals to raise the Pear Pizzaz piece of DSP to give it a little more distance from the busy pattern of the DSP. *Note: Whenever I do that, I layer the DSP on a piece of card stock to give it more weight, otherwise it will crumple on you. I then tied a piece of Pumpkin Pie Grosgrain ribbon around and added it to the base. Next, I added the focal point with dimensionals. I used a double layer on the top of the focal point and a single layer on bottom portion to give it the correct proportions. I hope you enjoy. See you soon.
