MFT's April Creative Challenge - Patterned Flowers

Thanks for stopping by for MFT's April Creative Challenge. This month's challenge is to Jazz Up Your Blooms with Pattern.  I have a couple of cards to share with you today. 

My first card is a gift card holder. The background is created with the Chevron Cover-Up Die-namics. The gift card pocket is cut with Gift Card Pocket - Vertical Die-namics from Gray Grout Card Stock. "Hello" is cut with the Happy Hellos Die-namics  and I added a coat of Sheer Sparkle Glitter Glaze. The "friend" sentiment is from the Bitty Banners Stamp Set, stamped in Sweet Tooth Ink and embossed with white embossing powder.

I created my patterned flower by stamping the Typewriter Text Background Stamp on Pink Lemonade Card Stock and then cutting the flower out with the Hybrid Camellia Flower Die-namics. The leaves are cut with the Layered Leaves Die-namics.


On the inside I stamped a sentiment from the Birthday Greetings Stamp Set and added a couple of the negatives left from using the  Chevron Cover-Up Die-namics.

On my next card I created my patterned flower with the Botanical Beauty Die-namics, the Textile Backgrounds Stamp Set,  Sweet Tooth Ink, and white embossing powder.

I used Polka Dot Cover-Up Die-namics for the background pattern and the Insert It - InstaFrame Die-namics to frame the sentiment. The sentiment is from the Birthday Greetings Stamp Set.

On the inside I stamped another sentiment from the  Birthday Greetings Stamp Set and accented with a circle created with the Concentric Circles Stencil. 

Here are the products I used on my first card:
