The Card Concept Challenge #4

Hey Everyone

Wow! We had 140 entries for our third challenge at The Card Concept – I can’t wait to see what you create with our fourth challenge!  This fortnights challenge is to create a card with a floral theme – here’s our inspiration pic to give you a hand making your card.


As you will see by my card I took the inspiration pic literally.  I totally love the flowers in the photo and went about re-creating them myself.  I tried to describe these flowers to my mum the other day on the phone to ask what they could be. She said two types of flowers.  I googled both flowers and ended up finding the correct one.  I then promptly forgot what they’re called.  I’m typing this post at 10pm at night so it’s too late to call her and ask her again – so at the moment these flowers have no name.  Anyway I made these flowers by cutting 6 circles of differing sizes and the black centre of the flower was made with my new Stampin’ Up! fringing scissors.  The sentiment I’ve used is from Stampin’ Up!s Petite Pairs.


Come and join us in our flower challenge – click here to take you to the challenge.  While you’re there check out the inspiration from the talented design team.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. I haven’t commented on your site in some time but I see each and every new card you post. Believe me if I were to leave a comment for each card, it would be the same comment every time . . . “I love your card! It’s so beautiful!!” . . . that kind of comment! 🙂

    But for this card I must say I especially love the bold colors of the flowers and how the black centers make the flowers pop! LOVE IT!! Beautiful card as ALWAYS!!!

  2. Absolutely beautiful! The flowers are ranunculus – I have them in my garden each spring and they are my favourite flower. You plant the corms in Autumn – April when the weather has cooled down – along with your other spring-flowering bulbs eg: daffodils, and they are so easy to grow. You can buy the corms by the bag at Bunnings or any nursery and they are really cheap and well worth the effort – just make sure you plant them with the pointy bits down and you don’t have to do anything else – simple! You have made your flowers look so much like the real thing and they are just AMAZING!

  3. Your flowers are exactly what I wanted to do! Problem was, I wasn’t sure how – ha! Thanks for the directions [they were hard~ ;)] — LOVE your card the colors are outstanding together~

  4. Oh, so pretty, Narelle! Really adore this palette, and that polka dot banner adds just the right amount of playfulness to the fabulous sophistication of those gorgeous blooms!
