Good morning everyone.
Well I am recovering well from my op, I've got the incense burning and some Bob Marley on ~ I'm taking it easy ~ so I couldn't resist a blog post!
This card is made with a beautiful set called "Fabulous Florets" which has 6 stamps in and features the sentiment "The Earth laughs in flowers" (E.E Cummings) which I think is beautiful and will transform all your lovely flower-themed cards.
I used Early Espresso cardstock for the base, took a card front of Whisper White then daubed some Platinum Shimmer Paint (£4.95) around the edges.
I stamped the leaves and flowers with Always Artichoke (I love that colour) and used daubers again to fill in the flowers with Pink Pirouette ink. I did a second lot of flowers on a separate piece of cardstock and then cut them out (the trick is to cut off a couple of the petals) and then attached them to the card using some Mini Glue Dots (£3.95 for 300). I Smooched them with some Vanilla Smooch Spritz (£4.50).
I added some pearls and a little Pretty In Pink cardstock in the corner and a Pretty In Pink stamped tag at the top from the Affection Collection stamp set, which I then added with a staple for an extra bit of silver.
To finish, I sprayed the whole card lightly with some Vanilla Smooch Spritz. And there you have it, a beautiful 3D flower card left ready for you to add any sentiment that you like.
To make this card (or another one like it) then please get in touch, I can sell everything you need from Stampin' Up!
Hope you all have a gorgeous, flowery day!
