If Friends Were Flowers Hello

I had a leftover gold oval from another card I created that I decided to use on this card, which is quick and easy to create.

I pulled out some green patterned paper and die cut a rectangle using a My Favorite Things A2 Stitched Rectangle. It was adhered with dotliner adhesive to a top folding cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock. The gold oval was then adhered to the center with the same adhesive.

The focal image is from LDRS Creative If Friends Were Flowers and was stamps on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, colored with Copic Markers and die cut with the coordinating die. 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape was added to the back of the flower image and it was adhered to the left of the oval.

The sentiment is from My Favorite Things Happy Hello dies and was cut from a scrap of dark green cardstock and again from black sticky back foam and adhered to the right of the focal image and the card was done.

Enjoy Your Day Flower Bouquet

For this card I pulled out the LDRS Creative If Friends Were Flowers. It was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copic Markers. Once coloring was complete it was cut out with the matching die.

I love clean and simple cards. Once of the favorite things I like to do is use a pretty die cut panel behind the focal image. I also like to used foam tape to add dimension to the focal image.

The sentiment was stamped underneath the focal image and the decorative panel adhered to the front of top folding card.

Beautiful Blooms Happy Birthday

This is the second card made with one of the Sizzix Creative Background dies. This time gold mirror cardstock was added behind the die cut and then it was sized using a stitched rectangle. The rectangle was adhered directly to a top folding A2 cardbase.

For this card I pulled out the LDRS Creative Beautiful Blooms, colored with Copic Markers, and die cut using the Silhouette PIXScan Mat. Foam tape was added to the back of the focal image to add dimension. Before adhering the sentiment was stamped below with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.

With Sympathy Anemones

This is the second small stamp I purchased from Nellie’s Choice. I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it with Copic Markers. This time I decided to pull out my LDRS Creative Scalloped Rectangle Set. I like this set because each rectangle has a different pattern, which look really pretty when you layer it.

The smallest rectangle has small dot, but they weren’t standing out very well with white and white, so I cut a small rectangle to go behind and used my Copic Markers to color the edges to match the leaves in the image. I think it helps it pop on the card front.

I stamped the small sympathy sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Tiny Words underneath the focal image, added some foam to add dimension between the rectangles and another clean and simple card was done.
