I saw a pretty card on Pinterest by Mindy Eggen and I decided to make a card with a similar layout and color scheme.
I cut three of the flowers from Honey Bee Stamps Lovely Layers Wildflowers and a daisy from Simon Says Stamp Layered Daisy Stem. I cut one flower from ivory cardstock and another from blush pink and ink blended the edges with Simon Says Stamp Cheeky Ink. Mindy had colored the bluebell flowers a yellow and I liked that look. I cut them from white cardstock and ink blended them yellow. I used the same light yellow ink to add a little color to the center of the daisy.
Mindy used a beautiful embossing folder. I didn't have anything like it so I pulled out a Spellbinders Candlewick Rectangle die and cut it out of white cardstock. I decided to add some texture using the Altenew Swirls Debossing Plate. I added to low loft foam tape to the back of the rectangle and then adhered it to a black rectangle cut just smaller by removing the backing paper on the foam tape.
The flowers, stems, and leaves were adhered din place with a combination of liquid glue and foam tape. The sentiment was embossed white on black cardstock and cutout with the coordinating die. It was adhered using foam tape as well.
I decided to use the Swirls Debossing Plate on the front of the A2 cardbase and then adhered to focal rectangle in place with liquid glue.
The final embellishments were to add some Nuvo Crystal Drops to the centers of the flowers and add a clear sparkle pen to the petals of the flowers.
