Hi friends, so sorry for the long unexplained delay on bringing you some new and fresh inspiration on this space. Some unexpected family health issues made our little world here a little topsy-turvy. We are still in the middle of all this, but trying to put my head above the forest for now. Please do keep us in your thoughts and prayers.
Here’s your card inspiration for today. I hope you like it :-)
I made this card in two steps:
- First I made all the sentiments, flowers and leaves
- And then I made the actual card layers
So, let’s take a look at each step separately:
Sentiments, flowers and leaves:
- Blooming Rose die set
- Cinch and Go II die set
- Cinch and Go III die set
- Small Die of the month – Sep 2020 and Dec 2019
- Distress Oxide inks – Worn Lipstick, Festive Berries, Stormy Sky, Crushed Olive
- Distress ink – Fossilized Amber
- Blending Brushes (linked below)
- Die cut everything.
- Ink blend on petals and leaves.
- Assemble the flowers and affix them with a brad in matching color.
- Layer the sentiments and add a little bit of shadow.
- Picot Petite Rectangles Etched Dies Picot Petite Collection from Amazing Paper Grace by Becca Feeken
- Diamond Netting embossing folder from Fun Stampers Journey & Spellbinders
- Chateau 12×12 paper pad from Michaels
- Die cut two panels using the Picot Petite rectangles dies.
- Dry emboss the card front using Diamond Netting folder.
- Trim rectangles to go under each fancy panel.
- Assemble the top most panel first
- Arrange the sentiments first and make a bouquet / wreath of flowers and leaves around it.
- Layer the leaves for some added interest.
- Add gold leaves on two sides. I also added a tiny one in the corner too.
- Once you are satisfied with the arrangement, adhere everything and finalize it.
- Now layer each fancy rectangle, with plain rectangles with some flat adhesive like scor tape.
- Layer these rectangles from top to bottom altering the adhesive between flat (scor tape) and dimensional (foam tape)
- Finally add everything on top of the card base.
