I liked the outcome from my previous card made with WPlus9 Watercolored Anemones and wanted to create a birthday card with a little more color. I like the look of the blue flowers and multi colored green stems.
This time I stamped the bouquet with Altenew’s Frayed Leaf on 80# Gina K. Designs White Cardstock to use as a background for assembling the separately stamped individual flowers and leaves, which were stamped on another piece of cardstock and then cutout with the matching dies. The die cuts were glued to the stamped bouquet with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and then the finished bouquet was fussy cut with scissors.
It was time to determine the layout of the card. A scalloped oval was cut with Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Ovals from Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock. A rectangle was also die cut from the same cardstock with Lawn Fawn’s Small Stitched Stackable Rectangles. Both were ink blended with Distress Ink Stormy Sky applied with the Inkylicious Ink Blending Brush. Darice Adhesive Fun Foam was added to the back of both.
I wanted to use some gold on this card and so I decided on Delicata Celestial Copper Ink for the flower centers and sentiment. The sentiment is from Gina K. Designs Sentiment Bouquet and was stamped on the bottom of the Lawn Fawn rectangle.
A top folding A2 cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock and the Lawn Fawn rectangle was adhered with Tombo Mono Multi Glue the fun foam. 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape was added to the back of the bouquet focal image and applied to the scalloped oval with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and then applied to the rectangle with the same glue. Sequins from Doodlebug Designs Swimming Pool and Simon Says Stamp Sparkle and Shine were scattered on the front of the focal image, applied with Ranger Multi Medium Matte, and the card was done.
