Praying for You Fantasy Floral
Updated: Mar 4, 2021
I recently purchased this Reverse Confetti Stitched Circle Cover Plate die when Ellen Hutson had 20% off on all dies and wanted to use it on a card. I decided to layer it white on white and love the subtle background that it adds to the card.
I also was organizing my dies and couldn't find an image of this older Simon Says Stamp "You" die and so I cut it from black cardstock so I could scan it add to my database of dies I own. I had it sitting on my desktop and needed to use it on a card so I wouldn't go to waste. I decided to pair it with this beautiful layering flower die from Altenew. I started with a pale blue cardstock I had in scraps and ink blended the layers with Altenew inks to give it the variation in color needed for each layer. I ink the edges of the leaves with Gina K. Design's Applemint Ink.
I cut down the background dies with the largest Lawn Fawn Stitched Stackable Rectangle, which is the same size as an A2 cardbase and adhered it to a top folding cardbase with dotliner adhesive. I cut the "you" two more times and glued them together with liquid glue to add some dimension to the sentiment. I laid the elements of the card on the card front to determine placement. The leaves were adhered directly to the card front with liquid glue. The flower was adhered using Simon Says Stamp Big Mama Foam Tape. This foam tape is more finicky to work with than 3M foam tape, but it has a lower loft and so it works great when you don't want to have too much dimension. The word "you" was adhered in place with liquid glue. The secondary sentiment was stamped on a scrap of white cardstock that was colored with Copic Markers that matched the flower and adhered over the "you" with liquid glue.
The final embellishments were to add Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen to the flower and blue droplets from Honey Bee Stamps around the image.
