A Mosaic Madness flower card

I’m back to the Mosaic Madness set for today’s card but I need to issue a word of warning with this post – sorry Frown

The Mosaic punch has flown off the shelves and is out of stock and we’re not quite sure when it will be available next. If you want to order the bundle then the stamp set can be shipped straight away and the punch will follow as soon as we can get supplies.

We have a few items like this, including the Six-Sided Sampler set and Hexagon punch and the Magnetic platform. Unfortunately, SU! underestimated the demand for these and something like 3 month supply sold in as many weeks (you’re really loving them and I can understand why!). They’re working hard to restock, but shipping to the EU adds to delays so it could be quite a number of weeks before we have them for you.

You could always fussy cut in the meantime? Foot in mouth

The card base is an A6 landscape of Smokey Slate, matted with Crushed Curry. Using the decorative mosaic stamp from the Mosaic Madness set* (W130246 or C130249), it was stamped five times using Crushed Curry ink onto Whisper White card and punched out with the Mosaic* (131267). Two plain mosaics were stamped in Bermuda Bay ink and punched out and all were arranged and adhered together as a flower and leaves. The decorative mosaic used earlier was used to stamp in Smokey Slate ink onto Whisper White card and punched out with the 1/2″ Circle (119869) to form the centre of the flower. Using one of the long border stamps, this was inked with Crushed Curry and stamped twice onto a Whisper White card mat, without reinking in between, then cleaned and stamped again with Smokey Slate ink three times. The mat was adhered to the card front and the flower popped up on dimensionals. After stamping the sentiment from Petite Pairs in Bermuda Bay ink onto Whisper White card, it was punched out with the Large Oval (119855), matted onto a Scallop Oval (119856) punched from Smokey Slate card and also popped up on dimensionals.

* Buy the stamp set and punch together as a Mosaic Madness bundle and get 15% off (W132734 or C132733).

This card was made for year round but by switching in a red and green to make more of a poinsettia flower, you could convert this to a Christmas card Smile
