Irresistibly Floral Quick Card for All Occasions
If you are looking for a gorgeous quick card to make you should try this wonderful pack of Irresistibly Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!®.
It makes a stunning background for a variety of cards and can be coloured using either the new sponge brayer from Stampin' Up!, a Sponge Dauber or a sponge. I chose to use a sponge - it's just what I like and I don't mind my fingers getting a bit inky!
I used this as one of the card designs in my Charity Card Buffet supporting Ronald MacDonald House Charities.
Today's card uses one of the patterns available in the pack - a pretty grouping of flowers and I've sponged with Melon Mambo. A quick application of the ink followed by a buff with a soft tissue to bring up the embossed patterns, and the back ground is done.
Trim the card to a little smaller than your card base and tie some Silver 3.2mm ribbon around the top layer. Next, cut out the flourish detail using the Flourish Thinlits and your Big Shot. You could use Shimmery White for this to save time, but I used Whisper White Card Stock and coloured it with Clear Wink of Stella.
Adhere this to your card front with the Fine Tip Glue Pen, adding a dimensional between the 2 layers of the flower. Top it all off with a Rhinestone or a Perfect White Accent coloured Silver with a Metallic Pen.
Here is another example that has been stepped up a little by adding 2 tones of Bermuda Bay ink and a tag and greeting. This card was made at the card buffet by my friend and fellow demonstrator Leonie Schroder. See more of her gorgeous work at Stamp a Latte
