I recently purchased Avery Elle’s Floral Bouquet stamp set. The matching dies make it easy to have a lovely bouquet cutout to place on a card.
I stamped the images on Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink since I planned to color it with Copic Markers. Colors used were: G21, G94, YG17; V22, V25; R89, R85, R83, R81. I really liked the combination of deep pink and purple. Once the coloring was done it was run through the Big Shot with the matching dies. I decided to place the bouquet on an oval cut with a My Favorite Things Stitched Oval STAX die. The oval was cut again with Darice Sticky Back Foam and then trimmed down to be just smaller than the shape and the two were adhered together.
I placed the bouquet where I planned to adhere it to determine where to stamp the sentiment, which is from the same stamp set. It was stamped with Hero Hues India Ink Black. The bouquet was adhered to the oval with 3M ½” Foam Tape. The small sprig of two flower buds was adhered with Multi Medium Matte and tucked under the right edge of the bouquet.
I think an embossed background adds interest and dimension to a card, so a rectangle of Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock was die cut with the rectangle from Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes and then run through the Big Shot with the Cuttlebug Oxford Embossing Folder. It was adhered to a side folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# Black Cardstock with Tombo Mono Multi Glue. The focal image oval was adhered in the center of the card with the same glue. To accent the stamen in the center of the flowers Platinum Stickles was added. As a finishing touch Clear Wink of Stella was added to the flowers and the card was done.
