Yellow and Orange Mums Hello

There are three ladies at church who are struggling with some personal issues. I was asked to created some cards that several women could sign giving them encouragements.


For this second card I pulled out the Honey Bee Stamps Lovely Layers Mums die set. I love Honey Bee layering dies, they made beautiful flowers and are so easy to align. I cut the mums layers from a light yellow cardstock. I always add ink blending to my layers. I think the flowers are pretty without blending, but they are flat and lifeless. For these flowers I decided to ink blend with orange on the yellow and love the way it turned out. Once the ink blending was done the layers were adhered together with liquid glue.


I decided to add some gold spatter to the flowers and leaves and think it really added to the design.


I cut a quarter sheet of white cardstock using the Crafter's Companion Grande Swirls Background Die, but I didn't like the way it had unfinished edges. So I decided to add it behind a white frame. I adhered it to the back of the frame with liquid glue and then decided to mat it with the same light yellow cardstock. It was adhered to a top folding A2 cardbase with liquid glue. The flowers and leaves were adhered in place with liquid glue. The panel was then adhered to a top folding A2 cardbase with foam tape.


The sentiment was cut from gold mirror cardstock and adhered below the flowers. A few gold confetti sequins were scattered around the flowers and the card was done.
