The Art Gallery bundle is one of my favorites because it of it’s modern watercolor look. The 2-step stamping for the flowers allows you to combine so many colors together–Flirty Flamingo and Poppy Parade is one of my favorites. Today’s card is a simple layout with beautiful results. Read on to learn how to make this card.
Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper (DSP): 1″ x 5.25″
Calypso Coral card stock: piece for 3 1/8″ scallop; 5.5″ x 7.5″ scored at 4.25″ along the 7.5″ side
Basic White card stock: piece for 2 5/8″ circle, (2) 3 x 5.25″, 3.5 x 3/4″ for sentiment
Mossy Meadow trim: 8″
When starting a project, I usually like to start my project by cutting the card stock, then die cutting and stamping all the parts and pieces. You will want to emboss one of the 3 x 5.25″ white pieces using the Painted Textures embossing folder for the front of the card. Die cut the outer scalloped circle and inner white circle. Next, begin to stamp your images. A tip for making sure your sentiment is straight: I like to stamp first and then line up my label die so the sentiment is centered and straight inside the die. The sentiment was stamped in Mossy Meadow ink.
To make the flower, stamp the base image in Flirty Flamingo and then stamp the second flower image over the first using Poppy Parade ink. Stamp the leaves using Mossy Meadow ink. On the second piece of 3″ x 5.25″ white cardstock for the inside, stamp the small flower image in Flirty Flamingo and then the little flower on top with Poppy Parade. I love this accent image!
Now you are ready to assemble the card. First, adhere the embossed white cardstock to the front of the card, centering it on the front flap. Next, adhere the circle flower image to the scalloped circle and apply to the front of the card using dimensionals, ensuring your dimensionals are not on the far right of the circle where it is off the front flap. Place the sentiment onto the front of the card using mini dimensionals. Add bow to the flower.
For the inside of the card, adhere the 1″ x 5.25″ piece of DSP to the right inside of the card so that it is evenly spaced on 3 edges. Line up and adhere the white piece of cardstock next to the DSP.
