Retro Sketches has another great sketch this week. It’s a square card, and I don’t usually make those so it was fun to do something different.
I used my favorite flower from Mixed Bunch, and stamped it on the white card layer. I then took a piece of Pool Party card stock, and punched out the flower on one side, embossed it with the Decorative Dots embossing folder (if you don’t have this yet, hurry and get it before Sale-a-Bration ends this week), and used dimensionals to pop it up.
When I stamped the flower, I used a mask on the side. I just sat the Pool Party piece down on the white piece, put a sticky note with the adhesive side right against the Pool Party edge, removed the Pool Party piece and stamped the flower image. That helped me to keep that nice, clean line on the side.
Enjoy your Sunday! Thanks for stopping by!

Cute card, Amy! But hmm… how did you punch the Pool Party layer exactly where you wanted the blossom to be? Looks tricky.
Beautiful card, Amy! But was wondering about the same thing… Hm…
Happy Sunday, Amy! Love this card, so cute! I don’t want to be a nag, but when are we going to get glimpses of your newly re-done, re-organized craft space? 🙂 Can’t wait to see it!
Thanks for sharing how you achieved the crisp edge. I definitely will be casing this gem!
I really love this card….what a great idea!
