Hi, everyone! Don’t you just love Spring and all the flowers? Teri here to show you how to put together a stamped card featuring lots of flowers and layers!
It’s the perfect card to send to a friend during the Spring season!
Embellish the Card Base
Apply E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser randomly along the edges. Next, apply the gold foil from the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Holographic Colors (color side UP), and burnish the foil onto the adhesive. Make sure to really rub the foil onto the adhesive, covering up all the sticky parts. Reapply the foiled in missed areas.
The Card Panel
Dry-emboss a panel of white cardstock with an embossing folder. Mount it onto the card base with Crafty Power Tape Polybag 81ft.
Stamping the Focal Point
Stamp a floral vase, along with a few flowers and a sprig of leaves, on cardstock. Color them in with markers and die-cut them. If you don’t have coordinating dies, use your scissors to fussy cut them out. Use Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix to adhere the flowers and leaves to the vase and then mount the vase onto your card.
Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside Technique with Foil
Metallic paint splatters are really popular in card making right now. You can easily mimic the look by applying Adhesive Dots Micro to your card. You can bend and stretch them as you apply them to paper to look more like splatters or use them as they are. Apply the same gold foil from the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Holographic Colors onto the dots. You can add as few or as many “faux splatters” as you want on your card.
The end result is one really pretty layered card! Remember, you don’t have to use the exact same stamps as I did. Check out your stash for something similar that will work.
I hope you are inspired to make a floral card of your own!
