Today I am sharing a floral card designed with the new Pretty Poppies Bundle along with a verse sentiment from the Fear Not stamp set , Kaisercraft Pen & Ink paper and Kaisercraft Self-Adhesive Pearls (plus other dies/supplies from Stamp Simply)!
Most of you who follow my blog know that I love to participate with online challenges- I will be linking this card to the Tic-Tac-Toe #121 Challenge (Pink, Embossing, Lace/Doily plus Bouquet, Embossing, Glitter), the Watercooler Wednesday Helen’s Challenge #319 “All Things Feminine” Challenge and the Word Art Wednesday #499-#500 “Anything Goes” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to visit the Stamp Simply blog or the other challenge sites yet, I encourage you to do so- gorgeous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
From the Kaisercraft Pen & Ink 6x6 paper pad, trim a piece of the script design as well as the lace design from to approx. 4” x 2 ¾”.
Distress the outside edges of each piece of designer paper and mount onto a piece of dark brown cardstock (overlapping a bit in the middle).
Use a stencil brush to apply antique linen distress ink (to “age” the paper).
To cover the raw edges of the designer paper in the center of the panel, add a strip of 3/8” Natural Crochet Lace (approx. ½” below the top of the raw edge).
Cover the top of the lace with a piece of May Arts ⅝” Sage Twill, wrapping and adhering the twill ribbon behind the panel.
Mount the background panel onto a white card base.
Watercolor the image with water-based markers and die cut with the coordinating Pretty Poppies Die (FYI- I also die cut two additional poppies from white cardstock to layer behind the watercolor image).
De-static another piece of white cardstock with
an embossing powder tool, stamp the verse sentiment from Fear Not with Versafine™ Onyx Black ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat
set with a heat tool.
Once the embossing for the sentiment has cooled, die cut with the Spellbinders Amazing Grace- Hemstitch Ovals Dies (I used the frame only of the second largest oval).
Die cut two additional ovals from white cardstock and adhere behind the sentiment oval.
Use a stencil brush to apply antique linen distress ink (to “age” the paper) and mount the sentiment oval to the card front with dimensional foam and/or chipboard.
Adhere the floral image to the card front with dimensional foam (and/or chipboard).
Use a clear glitter marker to add shimmer to the flower petals and a white paint pen to add a few highlights to the flower centers.
Finish off the card by adding Kaisercraft Self-Adhesive Pearls to the edge of the sentiment oval as well as the upper left and lower right-hand corners of the background.
