Melon Mambo Flower Shop

Well, it’s been quite a while since I brought out the big guns. The heavy hitters, the biiiig cards.

And today, well, I’ve brought out a tiny card that’s full of impact.

Bright colours, a single stand out image, and that flash of reflection from the button.

This card is small in stature but BIG on impact!

So this is a super simple card to make, you can mix it up into any colour way you fancy, but I wanted to showcase the Melon Mambo just as a colour. Not as a DSP but it’s all about the inks and card and ribbon.

A simple 3×3 card with the corners rounded off in Melon Mambo Cardstock and the matching Whisper White with its corners rounded off also. A strip of the 1/8″ Melon Mambo Ribbon went around the middle.

After that, I took the ‘sketchy’ type stamp from the Flower Shop stamp set, stamped it twice, once directly onto the white background, then a second time which I punched using the matching Pansy Punch. After that, I simply curled the edges of the uppermost pansy, and stuck it directly onto the ribbon using a couple of mini glue dots.

Initially I wanted to use the Dazzling Details, but I didn’t like the finish, so decided to pop a medium Vintage Faceted Designer Button on instead. If you look closely, you can see a little of the dazzling details peeping through….

And this little card? Quick and simple to make, full on colour and style, and bags of impact!
