DD85 Petite Petals Anniversary
This week’s DD85 “Bright & Cheery” Dynamic Duo Challenge combines Garden Green with Summer Starfruit. I thought that this color combination looked like spring so chose to create a floral card:-)
I hope that you will stop by and check out the rest of the Design Team projects and create a project of your own using the two colors - we would love to have you join us!!
Use the Big Shot™ with the Framed Tulips Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Trim the outer edge and adhere the ¼” Grosgrain Ribbon (wrapping the edges behind the Whisper White embossed panel).
Mount the embossed panel onto a piece of Garden Green cardstock and again onto the Summer Starfruit card front.
Using a brayer, lightly apply Summer Starfruit Classic Ink in a random pattern onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Using Garden Green Classic Ink, stamp the Flowering Flourishes image over the brayered area and add additional detail using the En Francais background stamp (also inked with Garden Green Classic Ink but stamping off once before applying to the brayered/stamped piece). If necessary, fill in any of the areas of the Flowering Flourishes image using a Garden Green Stampin’ Write marker.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Deco Labels Framelits™ to cut focal image piece and a piece of Garden Green cardstock. Layer the floral panel onto the Garden Green frame (cut the Garden Green frame in half horizontally in the center and split apart a bit to adhere behind the floral focal image).
Mount the focal image panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Repeatedly stamp the Petite Petals stamp using Garden Green Classic Ink onto Summer Starfruit cardstock (re-inking the stamp for each impression) and use the Petite Petals Punch to punch out the flowers and adhere to the panel using Mini Glue Dots.
Stamp the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes using Garden Green Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and punch out using the Word Window Punch. Mount the sentiment onto a punched Modern Label piece from Garden Green cardstock- add to the focal image and card front using a Stampin’ Dimensional®.
Using an AquaPainter™ add Frost White Shimmer Paint to the petals and background layer. Add the Pearls to finish off the card.
